Hoping someone can help, as I've had no luck finding an answer.
I want to put up a small 4.9m x 2.1m pergola over my existing 1st floor verandah and I can't work out the best way (or any way) to anchor the rafters.
My problem is that my house has Fascia Gutters, i.e. the type with no separate fascia, where the back of the gutter is essentially the metal fascia (same as pic below). So this leaves me with no real fascia to fix the rafters to.
I've considered just dynabolting a ledger to the wall but the house is brick veneer so the wall isn't structural.
Given that this gutter type is not that uncommon and neither are brick veneer houses, I'm really hoping there is a simple and common way of attaching the rafters in this situation.
I've seen the roof-extenda idea but not convinced that having the pergola roof line sit higher than the house roof line looks good.
