I am attaching my patio cover header to my fascia. The fascia is held
in by blocking to a header on my wall. Some of the rafters are tied
into the blocking, while other rafters fall a little short. So I am
not confident in the blocking being able to hold the patio cover
weight without the rafters being attached as well.
What I need help with:
If I am going to lag screw my header through the fascia into those
blocks (since I cannot screw into the rafters becuase they dont meet
the fascia), how can I reinforce them to hold the weight of the patio
cover? Is there a how-to for beefing up blocking, etc? Should I
somehow extend my rafters to the fascia?
Thanks in advance.
