Low tie in metal roof

I am wanting to put a roof over a 12x12 wood deck that sits aprox. 8" above the ground. The house fascia is 9' above the top of the deck (I will tie the roof to this) so I want to put up a metal roof with either steel or aluminum angel or T beams to support this metal roof. What size T or angel is required to span 12'? This will have a very low pitch, probably 1 foot over a 12 foot span and will not need to support anything other than rain run off. (Charleston SC)

Thanks for the help.

You should contact your local building inspections dept. I'm sure they have attachment and holding down requirements for the roof because of high winds/hurricanes. Here in NC the requirements are much more stringent at the coast than inland.
