I would like to build a wooden patio cover for the backyard with wood/lumber to protect from sun and rain.
I want something permanent and not the aluminum/fabric awnings.
The size is 8 ft x 12 ft and slanted from the house with gutter draining the rainwater away.
Work involves installing four posts 4x4 and one 2x6 board attached to the brick wall where the 12 rafters of 2x4 would be attached. The roof will have plywood covered with roofing material. Directing the gutter involves some challenges but the guy says he can figure this out.
The work involved digging for the four 4x4 posts and drilling holes through the brick wall to attach the 2x6 boards of 12 ft and attaching rafters. Also, some electrical wirings need to be redirected.
Is the project for a handyman or I should go with the construction company.
I will provide all materials that would be around $1000.
Labor estimate is about $3000.
Is it a fair quote for labor?
