I live in an 85 year old brick end of row. The back porch is on a concrete slab and has a covered balcony above. The balcony and porch both have wooden support posts. I recently took on the task of stripping the paint on the balconly floor (tongue & groove wood) so it could be repainted. I quickly discovered that some of the floor boards were rotting. That led me to discover that some of the post supports are also rotting along with the fascia beam (?). Upon further investigation I learned that a previous owner attempted to do some repairs to the balcony by added some pressure treated wood but it doesn't appear that the repair is structurally adequate. This evening I decided to poke around at the porch ceiling (also tongue & groove wood) only to discover more wood rot. The wood rot seems to be localized to just the perimiter. I've jacked up the balcony roof in attempts to replace the post supports with new wood but I'm not sure what to do about the fascia beam and the balcony floor joists or the porch ceiling? I would like to either tear out the porch ceiling and replace with vinyl or cover over the porch ceiling with new vinyl if possible thus eliminating one more area of required painting.
Suggestions needed for the other rotting wood repairs.

Thanks for any advice you can share!
