This custom 15 ft x 8 ft awning was a special order clamshell aluminum awning for resale without details about how it was used.
From experience as a licensed contractor in Florida there are permit exceptions that define whether an installation is permanent.
A roof as a patio cover to provide shade and protection from sunlight and uv would be considered a permanent part of the building.
Custom aluminum awnings like this one are not considered permanent because once they are installed they are still easy to remove.
