    Default Replacing a tiled section with iron.

    G'day there, I have just brought a house and will be doing some renovations.
    At some stage an extension was put on to the house and the roof was tiled. Not sure why as the pitch is pretty flat and water gets through. I am looking at replacing it with iron and was wondering if I could just take the tiles off and screw to the tile batterns. The roof space is about 7 sheets wide by 3.1 long. if any one could help me out with the batterns or any ideas on tiles that would be great.
    Cheers Skrout1

    Hi Skroutat

    Welcome to the forum. Yes you would be able to put the roofing iron over the tile battens. There would be no need to fix to every batten but to fix about 1200 apart. If the pitch is less than 5 degrees don't use corrugated but use something like Lysaght Trimdek.

    The battens may be a little narrow.

    We just re-roofed out tile roof with colorbond, we left the existing tile battens and just rebattened over the top of every 3rd batten, as the tophat sits nice and neat over the top of the small tile ones.

    Don't forget that there's a lot more uplift from a tiled roof, so depending on your location, you may have to provide structural tie-downs for the frame as well.
