Old patio roof

Hi all! I wanted to replace some of these moldy sections of my porch cover (I would hate to have a new one built). But I can't figure for the life of me where I could find them ( the supports) . Any suggestions?? Your help is very much appreciated��

Welcome to the forums!
Why not just clean them?

When I try all your links are to the same picture. But, it looks like your patio roof just needs cleaning. It can be pressure washed or scrubbed.

No luck

Thanks for all of the responses! I actually wanted to add a section and replace those while I was at it. I can't seem to figure out where to get them. The closest thing I could find were "steel drywall studs" and by the sounds of it... That's not correct. I don't know where to start I've Googled everything under the sun with no luck!

You will have a hard time matching them exactly. They are corregated frp... fiberglass reinforced roof panels. Here is an example.

Thanks for that, I found the roof panels... I'm just having a hard time finding the metal parts that hold it up. The front piece looks like a gutter to me and the middle pieces look like metal drywall studs. Anyone have any idea what these things are? I walked all around home depot and Googled everything I could think of.

Yeah, you have no chance of matching the exact profile of the aluminum. But any company that puts up patio covers or carports will be able to put up (or sell you) an additional cover that you can build right next to the existing... as long as the top edges plane out at the same level as the existing you should be able to tie them together even if they don't match exactly.

You can contact several awning companies and look at the products you use. One of them may use something similar to what you have now. Patio roofs and awnings like yours are pretty common and most installers are pretty creative at putting things together to make it work.
