I bought this house last year. The previous owner had this covered patio added Oct 2018. It’s a 15’ x 23’ patio with an asphalt shingle roof. When I bought the house, the patio cover was supported one side only by the house. After doing some investing(tearing into a wall), I discovered that the beams going into the house were simply hanging on the sheathing/siding. I had a structural engineer come out and look at it and he recommended having some posts installed under the beams where they go into the house. I had that done, but I’m still not satisfied its strong enough. The engineer estimated that the patio cover weighs #7000. Is it safe for the house to support that much or half that much weight? The house was built in 2011. It’s conventional 2x4 framing on a concrete slab. I’m not in an area where snow is a concern, but hurricanes and strong winds definitely are. For now, all my doors and windows open and close smoothly and there’s no cracks in my drywall. You can see the un-painted posts I had added. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
