I am adding a covered deck and attaching to my house. I want to attach it like the project about which funtastic asked this forum May 20 '14 at 6:47 and was given a response to his question by shirlock homes a few hours later.
My question is: How are the beams that support the rafters supported at the house? I have seen house roof decking, soffit, and fascia removed to expose the top of the exterior wall. This seems dependent on needing proper studs in the wall to support the beams and in the above mentioned access method I have never seen the side wall opened to accommodate this.
If the beams are supported by support posts from the ground and then the roof tied in like funtastic's it appears that this may lead to deck roof movement independent of the house roof which it would seem to lead to shingle interlacing failure.
Sorry if I am too long winded but I have tried to think this through and be confident in the outcome. Thank you for your expertise
