Just moved into a house, the patio deck roof looks unstable. It's connected to the rafters by what looks like deck nails with no ledger board. Looking for opinions in this condition if I should tear the whole thing down and restart, or if it's a fixable solution. What materials do I require to repair and make the roof safe ? Is this acceptable with CA building standards ? Thank you in advance.
The normal fascia board has been removed and a 2X put on the end of the rafters to support the roof. Depending on the length I have seen this done and last for many years. I would think if it was not up to code the home inspection would have identified that since it looks new. It looks like they nailed through the boards. You could add hanger's if you are concerned like this. I would not tear it off unless a real problem is raised other than "looks unstable" or has leakage problems.
