Good luck with that idea.
One of the many joys of dealing with stucco, stucco needs to be cut out to tie in the ledger, and add flashing.
Seem to be a common issue in FL. there has to be local contractor that should have some input.

Greaaaaat that does not sound fun. Guess I'll leave that part to professional. Or just screen in the covered part and leave the slab exposed. I was hoping to get grill out under metal roof but still screened in

Just a thought can it bee tied in under the eave? That would avoid having to cut into the stucco and actually give me a couple extra feet.

Attaching metal hanging bracket to fascia for screen porch roof

Can I do this? Or at least attach to the eaves under the over hang instead of cutting into stucco? The roof was built with 2x4 trusses 24" on center. Eaves are vinyl soffit just want to cover 6'x8' slab that comes off my back porch. And screen everything in. Started a post earlier but I wasn't getting any responses on this part.

Normally it's not allowed to hang rafters from the fascia or rafter tails. It's done quite a bit though with unpermitted patios, would not pass inspection. I'd be careful if you're in a hurricane zone.

Ok so for a metal patio roof kit would have to be attached to stucco? I have tried researching this info and not even the building codes are real clear on it.

I would go ahead and attach the cover to the fascia. It'd be a different story if you were building a large deck, shingled roof, etc.

Ok thanks it's amazing how difficult it is to find this information. Guess that keeps businesses going if it is too hard to find good information.

Ok after some research I have discovered that I have an eifs system not real stucco. How do I safely secure the aluminum framing of the screen through the system into the wood framing members underneath without causing failure to the system? I have read about using tubing and sealing but not sure that using tubing long enough to keep pressure off eifs is going to hold well enough during windy conditions.

EIFS has enough problems of its own--don't go looking for more by asking it to perform structurally.

I don't want to use it structurally. I just want to make sure that as I attach screws through the system into the wood supports underneath that I don't cause a problem later. Just to be clear it is a newly applied system(October) has the weep screening behind it I just want to make sure I seal everything properly without crushing the system.
