My wooden patio comes 10 foot out from the house and is 26 foot wide, my roof is 8 foot tall over the patio. I would like to build a roof that will blend with my house roof over the top of it. I have lots of bbq pits and i cook outside constantly, this doesnt mix well with florida rain every day...

What would be the best way to build this?

Contact a professional.

It is your only option in Fla.

Hurricane codes, roof bracing, and slope considerations makes this nothing a DIYer can handle.

From an other Floridian:

Aluminum patio covers.........Are about the easiest roof with the 8' limitations......locally about a $1 sq ft for the roof plus structure......
