Do I need a roofing contractor?


I have an overhead aluminum screen enclosure two sides of it are attached to the house's fascia board. The fascia boards are in pretty bad shape some parts are so rotten I can make a dimple by pressing my finger into it. It is a recently purchased house so it's been in neglect for years. The leaves from the tree traps in the "valley" between the bottom of the tiled roof and the bottom of the screen enclosure, and sat there, trapped moisture and caused wood rot. I removed a small section of the eave and peeked inside and I can see the fascia boards are attached to some 2x4 laid 24" aparts, each 2x4 is attached to the roof framing at an angle (hard to explain) and some of the 2x4 are also rotted a bit where it meets the rotted fascia boards.
So the work I would need to do are:
(1) Detach and dissemble the screen enclosure at least on two sides where it attaches to the structure. (2) Remove all fascia boards and replace with new PT wood fascia boards. (3) Examine the 2x4 where the fascia boards are attached to, and it any rots occurs - I am not sure what to do, either replace or install a sister 2x4 next to it. (4) Replace the sections of eave that are also rotted. (5) Prime and paint all new wood. (6) Reattach the screen enclosure again. (7) Install a "lid" over the "valley" to stop rain and leave from collecting there.
I want to hire someone to do this. I just don't know if this is a roofer's job, a screen enclosure guy's job or a carpenter's job. I called around and no one wants to do it all, they all just want to do the screen part, or the framing part etc...I have trouble finding a "general" contractor to do repair oriented work.
Any suggestions?

First take all apart that is possible, without major leaking. Then assess work to be done. Roofers do lousy carpentry, so the first shot is a good carpenter, with local references. The enclosure may have structural and drainage/design problems, so you need advice on whether attachment to house is the problem, not just leaves. If the enclosure were properly attached, water would still drain off, if enough pitch was used, even with debris around. Once roof/enclosure connection is proven sound and properly pitched, get the carpentry repairs, cover with temp. tarp, and get several roofing estimates for reroofing. Roger
