    Default Clading for 1 degree pitch

    Hi everyone,

    Is Speed Deck Ultra the only material suitable for 1 degree pitch? Is there polycarbonate or fiberglass based roofing material for 1 degree slope?

    Thanks.

    Products like Kliplok and Lokdek will do it.

    No poly or fibreglass I know of can do it. These are less rigid materials and the 1 degree fall cannot shed water fast enough and will sag and leak, either at the joins, or at the ends due to wicking back under, or both.

    Just keep in mind the structure needs to have been designed to take the weight of the tin rather than the lighter weight poly.

    1 degree!!! now I'm no roofing pro. have done speed deck/clip lock type setup once when I had to extend a garage. As in finding the best match I could to mate up with the original.

    The sag the original part had suffered over the years, (being walked on a few times doesnt help) causes a bit of water to pond. havent noticed any leakage issues to date, but certainally not ideal. Now its definetely more than 1 deg.

    Hope u dont have a similar issue to above mentioned.

    Laserlite has a profile that's exactly the same as lysaght klip-lok 700 High strength, its a bit "industrial" looking though, cheers
