Is it OK to sister/splice an extention/tail to a porch roof rafter to get back to a structural beam?
Brother in law says as is won't pass inspection - sisters added to full length of existing rafters that have outside tails damaged from leaking gutter - since not anchored/attached to significant point - merely soffit boxing as seen.
My thought was to cut soffit out of way and join in an extention that will take me to the main wall beam above door, leaving 2-3' of overlap with existing rafters to bolt in...
Porch roof, not attic, floor etc.,...? Not up to code?
