    Default Gable patio (steel) coming off the front of my house

    Hi all this is my first post...

    I'm getting a gable steel patio installed off the front of my house (see the photo).

    Can I save money by going directly to the truss maker etc and just paying someone to 'install' it?

    Going by my plans is 90mm wide posts enough for a 7m span?

    how deep should the posts go in and how much concrete around them?

    Should the truss have an extra V for strength?

    Any other tips hints etc?

    appreciated!

    I'd probably ask a local mob quote on fabricate and install. They should also be able to arrange the permit. You should be able to get most of your questions answered by the 'mob' as many of the questions relate to aesthetics as well as structural, and if their quote is 'unreasonable' you will have more info to go on.

    And their response didn't help answer any of the basic questions you have?
