re: Slanted patio cover DIY help
That looks like a lot more work, but a lot more secure. Would there be any structural weight concerns attaching to fascia?

It looks like he attached to the top plate of the house. I was under the impression that I needed a 3/12 roof pitch at minimum. If this is legal, I may pitch this idea to the boss lady. Are there any permit/inspection concerns doing this?

How wide is the span? Also, how wide is your fascia? Reason on the later is that anything with a span of 8' or wider, you will have to use 2x6 ers.

Another thing. You will need to see the framing behind the fascia to see if it can hold the load. Also how wide is the overhang? 12", 16" or 24"?

Me, I would go direct to the top plate even if I had to cut the roof line which is really not hard to do.

3/12 if you have any trees around is good. As for as any permits, I have no idea about BR area.

re: Slanted patio cover DIY help
Mine will be a 12' x 20' patio and I would like probably a 2 foot overhang, so a span of ~14'. I have't measure the overhang, but if I had to guess either 24" (maybe 16"). I have been referring to this guy's plans: LINK . He secured the 2x4 ledger with 3.5-inch deck screws into the house's fascia, and used 8" x 3/8" lag screws to further secure the 2x4 ledger beyond the fascia and sub fascia, into each of the existing rafter tails. It looks like he used 2x4 rafters for a 10' span, but I think you're right that 2x6 would be the way to go.
