Corrugated iron roof pitch wrong

What is the minimum pitch for corrugated iron roofing?

The rule of minimum pitch for corrugated iron roofing is the most common disregarded piece of engineering logic.

If you have a metal roof on your house – there is a good chance that it is made of corrugated iron roofing. The corrugated profile dates back to 1820 and it is the most used metal roof profile in the world…

It is no wonder that most house builders use corrugated roof sheeting when there is a metal roof to be installed. Here is a horror story about attempts to repair leaks on a flat corrugated roof.

Corrugated roofing is a great material on traditional pitched roofs – but it has severe limitations when the pitch gets below 5 degrees. That is why all roofing manufacturers recommend the 5 degree pitch as the minimum slope and they will not provide any guarantees if it is installed flatter than this.

There are two main reasons why corrugated roof sheeting and low pitches do not mix:

  1. During heavy rain, the valleys of the corrugations fill up to the height of the crest or even above that. This means that at the side laps of every sheet, water overflows under the lap. And fills up the gap between adjacent roof sheets. Then it trickles over the edge of the roof sheet into the roof cavity.
  2. At the upstream end of the corrugated iron roof sheeting, the valleys are turned up to prevent water flowing backwards and running off the upstream end. During heavy rain (or if there is wind combined with rain), water fills up the valley and overflows the turn up. Fairly heavy leaking can result from this.

Flat skillion roofs are the most common way to increase the size of a traditional bungalow house and many builders and roofers simply slapped on some ‘corrugated iron’ for the roof. This is the cause of most of the roof leakage problems with skillion metal roofs.

Modern architecture has birthed the demand for low profile roofs and builders and roofers still have a problem in this modern era of simply not understanding the limitations of corrugated roofing. I see countless examples of corrugated roofing on brand new low pitched roofs. These are water leakage time bombs.
… and many roofers think they can fix these roofs with a bit of roofers silicone – until they find that roofers silicone is not always the way to do a roof repair properly.

Roof sheeting manufacturers have long since overcome the limitations of low pitched roofs by inventing special profiles like “Lysaght Trimdek”, ‘Lysaght Kliplok’, and other profiles. But people still cannot grasp that when the pitch of the roof starts getting low, the look of the roof profile is less important than the function…

The problems with corrugated roof sheeting and low pitched roofs must be the number one metal roof problem because of all my videos on my Youtube, the one below is the most viewed….

Corrugated roofs are not the only type of roof that suffer from leakage due to being installed at low pitches. The ‘trimdek’ and ‘Kliplok’ profiles can also suffer problems.

UPDATE:

Answer to a smart question: “As a roof gets longer, does the slope need to increase?”

The answer is: “YES. It has to do with how much water the roof is carrying. A longer roof had more water at the downstream edge. Also, what is not usually taken into account is the average rainfall for the area the roof has been installed.

Therefore, in dry areas, you can have a much longer corrugated roof that can be laid at 5 degrees.
If your roof is in Bathurst, NSW, you can have a 25m long roof at 5 degrees.
But if you live in Coffs Harbour, a corrugated roof at 5 degrees cannot be more than 10 metres long.”

I would be very interested to find another option for an
extension I am planning as there is a legal covenant on my house that does not permit the use or corrugated iron…
Does anyone know if ‘corrugated’ would include trimdek or Kliplok? Is there any other options available other that iron for a 5 degree pitch?

Hi Jack
I am writing a report for an insurance about a low pitch roof, under 5 degrees. I have looked in the BCA and Australian Standards but can’t find the magical number eg the BCA states that …….Is it only the recommendations of the roofing manufacturers or do you know what the number might be eg AS 123.
Thanks Andrew

Hi Jack,
I have an existing ultra low (0.5 degree) pitched cliplok roof that is about 20years old and has never leaked as yet and am looking to replace it, however I’m unable to increase the pitch on the roof when replacing to 1degree (as required for trimdeck)due to other building constraints ?? I’m in Sydney, Any ideas ?

Hi Jack,
I have experienced major leaks in our new house (< 5 years old).
It has a low profile corrugated roof in certain sections.
The builder has been resisting helping with the repairs.
We have got the insurance company involved and when they recently sent the assessor to our house, he almost immediately commented that the pitch of the roof was too low!
When he measured the pitch it was 2.2 degrees, way less than the minimum 5 degrees you mentioned.
The assessor told us this would be considered a building defect and to try and negotiate with the builder to repair.
We went back to the builder and they said that building standards always change. They were claiming that with long stretches of roofing low pitches are ok.

Can you please help clarify what is the minimum pitch for corrugated roofing, regardless of the length?

We are extremely frustrated with all of this and are now considering taking it to fair trading to assist.

What do you think?

I am planning to knock down and rebuild my house. My neighbor has a covenant over the roof height of my house. The covenant has different height restrictions for “flat” and “pitched” roofs. Is there some sort of legal definition of what is a flat and a pitched roof, for example in the Building Code of Australia or legal ruling precedents. Some online information indicates flat roofs are less that 1.5 degrees slope and other info says less than 10 degrees. Some info says that a skillion roof (which normally would have significant slope and I would call a pitched roof) is a form of flat roof.

Hi jack ,
Appreciate your help .

Our insurance company is saying that ‘The pitch of the Trimdek roof is 2degrees which does not comply with code’ , however when I looked up the trimdeck specification it stated 2 is the minimum …
Could the insurance company be wrong ? Appreciate your direction to the correct information.

Also if my roofer did not install flasings , is that against the building regulations ?

Thanks for your help

Hi Jack
I am having a similar issue regarding the Trimdek 2 degrees minimum slope not complying with the NCC (BCA).
As you state the roofing manufacturers provide minimum roof pitches of 2 degrees (Lysaght – Trimdek and Stramit – Monoclad), even with long run lengths. I do not see any ambiguity in their documentation regarding the minimum roof pitch or any other limitations of their recommendations.
However, the NCC 2016 Volume 2 states a minimum pitch of 3 degrees. This can be found in Figure 3.5.1.5 Maximum span and fixing for metal sheet roofing. Diagram a. lists trapezoidal sheeting as having a minimum pitch – 3 degrees.
Are you able to provide any comments regarding with difference between the code (NCC) and the manufacturers?
Thanks,
Blake

As of June 2020 is there still no BCA code/requirement re the minimum pitch for Trimdek?
The manufacturer’s recommendation still stands at 2 degrees (Lysaght website still states that as of 19/6/20)
I have just had an insurance assessor say the existing slope of 3 degrees on my trimdek garage roof does not comply with current standards?
Appreciate your update on the situation.

Hi
I have a query about battens. Our insurance company says our battens don’t meet Australian standards as the first batten down from the ridge capping is 1430mm and should be 900mm. Bottom batten spacing is 1200mm and supposedly should be 900mm. Somewhere in the paperwork, I see a reference to not suitable spacing ‘for this material’ referring to the wrongly used corrogated sheeting. The house is in south- east qld and the actual issue is the roofing the insurance company did after the floods. The roof pitch is 3 degrees. Anyway, I’m just trying to gain some insight into whether Trimdek and Kilplok will also have these batten standards?

Hi Jack
We have a steep pitch corrugated roof. We recently had a roof added on over an entertaining area with shallow pitch. No surprises it leaks at the interface between the two. The builder was a friend (bad move) and he seems to be unable to fix it.
Are there any solutions to this sort of problem? We live in Wollongong.

We have 20 solar panels on the corrugated roof which the insurance say is only 3 to 4 degrees pitch. Although the water in a storm came from the gutter end in my office and there were no internal leaks from the top end of the roof (7m into the house layout) which abuts a large heritage slate roof, the insurance assessor claimed the flashing seal near the slate caused problems too and water would be driven into that end too. Needless to say the assessor rejected any building claim saying it was maintenance and wrong building angle of the corrugated roof. Ie we need to install a whole new roof and relay the solar panels.
I wonder if a strip of Kliplok roof could be placed between the slate roof and where the solar panels start – about 1m – placed on top of the existing corrugated roof and well sealed and flashed to remove the necessity of doing any movement of our recently installed solar panels

Hi Jack
I have just had my toof reroofed with kliplock on a.3 degree slope 16 × 10 long and an extension and gazebo with colorbond sheeting my roofer says he has finished the job but the joins are full of silicone whete metal gaps are and the colorbond sheets are scatched and some have already surface rust. On Gazebo corners dont meet up and sheets not secured appropriately 60cm from beam. Also whete they initially took the old sheets of the roof and left th their until a crane arrived they had render attached to it the results are there’s little bubbles of rust starting where this material was stored.
Can you point me into the right direction where I can get some legal or professional advice on how to handle my problem and to deal with my roofer
What authorities do I nred to go through
I presume with what they ha e done I will have no warranty on my roof.
This roof was not covered by insurance I had to pay insurance will not take responsibility for the any roofer’s work they told me this prior to job starting.

Fair enough but roof has been replaced twice before in 96 & 06 because of hail damage and nothing was said then why the change same insurance company different company doing quote as an aside how do I replace the decking roof with trim deck where it meets the roof correct pitch.

In reference to above NRMA offered a payout as building company would not offer under warranty as roof under pitched can this mean that in the future if we have another hailstorm, could NRMA come back and say we will not fix your roof as it is under pitched and your at fault and have standards changed in the past ten years as they have claimed they could have. cheers in advance

Hi Jack

We are planning an extension at the rear of our house, however our title has a covenant requiring the roof on the dwelling needs to be tiled/slated. As a result we cannot go for an iron roof option.

Our draftsman has drawn up a 5 deg pitch on the roof, and has told us there are limited tiles available in the market for a 5 deg pitch and that it was likely going to cost us a lot. He noted we may be better off creating a standard pitched roof rather than 5 deg, and using standard roof tiles.

Can you recommend any tile/slate products we can look into for the 5 deg pitched roof, and do you know how expensive the products are likely to be compared to standard roof tiles? Any other suggestions/advice would be very helpful and greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Ash

Hi Jack,

I’ve read most of these comments and you are dead on with your replies and advice. Some sad stories of contractors not doing it right.

Im a builder myself, have recently moved to the southern highlands, and am considering a bonnet roof, i quite like the look of the dual pitch, and being a chippy also, am willing to get the carpentry right.

What id cant find online yet is what pitches are used for a bonnet roof..

By eye, it looks like a 5-10 degree pitch for the lower section, and approx a 40 degree pitch for the upper…

Have you come across many ? and do you remember what pitches were used ??

Any help much appreciated

Also, do you travel to the highlands for any of your jobs ? if so, I’ll keep you in mind for a price..

And i’m happy to pay you for your advice and help this side of a sub-contract being agreed on

Hi Jack,

I have a rubbed low pitch roof that is exhibiting the upstream flow leakage you showed in your video. I have managed to overcome this. However at the run off end the water is travelling underneath and back up under. I have tried turning the lip down, however the ribbed design does not really allow it. It doesn’t bend too much until the metal rips and looks unsightly. FYI there is no gutter.

Hi Jack,
My shed has a corrugated roof with only 3.43 degree pitch over 5 metres. I’m not having any problems at the turned up upstream end but water is entering at the downstream end and wicking through the insulation blanket. I have no roof lining as yet! There is 2 obvious problems, one is the incorrect pitch and one is the overhang which ranges from 40 to 50mm. Can you suggest a possible fix short of replacing with kliplock roof?

Do you know if the Lysaght Custom Orb Accent 21 and Accent 35 can be installed at a pitch below 5 degrees?

The Lysaght website states that they can be, but this is not consistent with Section 3.5.1.3 of the NCC, which states that corrugated profile roofing must have a minimum pitch of 5 degrees, as you’ve indicated above.

Cheers,

Hi, I am currently having issues with my roof that is corrugated iron pitched roof with many valleys but a twenty year old extension which is on plans 5 degrees but the roofer says it is 2.5 degrees . Can you mix or for a better word join or slide under the differ profiles such as trim deck and can the Accent 21 or 35 be used and can it be used all over and is it a colourbond product. Thanks Janelle

Hi Jack
I have a pitched corrugated roof workers cottage with an insulated corrugated covered deck. The deck is pitched at 2.5 degrees. I have not had any problems with this product at this pitch since it was installed 20 years ago. I think the product was fairly new to market at the time. My problem is my insurer is replacing my roof due to hail damage. They have replaced the pitched roof and now the deck roof has arrived it is the wrong profile. I want it corrugated to match. They refuse or discuss. I have halted works. Any thoughts on a product in the insulated range which would work?

Hi Jack,

We’re working on a new build at the moment and have some questions. The house will have 5° verandahs wrapping around much of the house, and colorbond custom orb was specified in the design which meets the manufacturers recommended 5° minimum pitch. Most of the verandah drops down about one cladding width from the main roofline, but a section at the front transitions from the main 28° roofline to the 5° verandah roofline without cladding between. The verandah also has a gabled section over the front door (so there’s a couple of valleys).

Anyway, the roofer threw a spanner in the works today and suggested that we install trimdek for all the verandahs to avoid issues with leaks down the track as he doesn’t think custom orb will be good enough at 5° despite the manufacturers recommendation. As this is the front of our house and really visible from the street as we’re on a slope we’re really concerned about how it’ll look the have mixed roof profiles, and it seems unnecessary since custom orb is okay to 5°. What do you think? We’re thinking maybe a third option which would give us some peace of mind but also avoid the mixed profile look would be to use custom orb 21 for the whole roof as this is recommended to 3°. Would love your opinion on these options.

Thanks,
Jess

Hello Jack

Thanks for the very useful article and replies to comments

Do you have any advice re profile and pitch for roofing under a deck?

I have a deck that’s about 7.2m x 4.5m with 25% protected by a roof and the other 75% open to Brisbane weather

I’m replacing corrugated iron under the deck that protects a deck below – it definitely didn’t have enough battens and I calculate the pitch as about 1:50 (1°) which would be much too flat for an open roof

I’ve seen 1/4” per foot pitch (1:48) recommended in US-based YouTube videos that seem otherwise competent

Car parking under the lower deck is protected by TrimDek which also is at about 1:50 pitch

Would TrimDek be a better option under the top deck, rather than corro?

Maybe increasing pitch to 1:30 (2°) regardless?

Thanks for any advice you can offer

Hi jack –

We are building a granny flat currently, it has a skillion roof- 5 degree’s, plans are drawn for use of standard custom orb. Our builder has recommended we change to trimdek for the reasons you have described above .

We live in Alice Springs – rainfall is minimal but, then again rain happens!!

At the risk of sounding superficial, we would like to stick with custom orb-
I know I could get a deeper profile at an increase cost.

In your experience have you seen leekage problems with roofs pitched at 5 degree? If we followed through with the use of custom orb on the roof and something was to go pear shaped with water leakage – given that the pitch is within the parameters defined by the manufacturer, who is accountable and what processes need to occur?

Thank you
Bobbi

Hi Jack

I am planning on building home with an adjoined granny. The wall height of the main home is 2700mm. I would like to keep the granny height at 2400mm.

The builders suggest the best solution is to have the granny and the main home at 2700mm with one single roof. Given the additional cost I would like to keep the granny at 2400mm itself. The granny would be 5.5m wide and run along the main home at 11m length.

I proposed if we can have the granny with a separate metal roof at a 5 degree pitch, however builder states there is insufficient space for the roof angle, and possibly needs a 3000mm+ roof on the main home.

Would you have any other alternative solution to this roofing problem?

Thanks for the information you provide!

I want to build a simple 4m x 8m structure with Bondor Insulroof as the roof for an off-grid, off the radar project. They recommend 5 degrees, or 2 degrees for their Solarspan product. (Insulroof has a sandwich of polystyrene between the corrugated iron and a metal finish which becomes the ceiling.)

Because of the challenge of creating a skillion roof on the simple steel structure, I would like to lay the roof flat. They will be single sheets of iron but in 1 m widths where they clip together. I had ‘hoped’ that it would cope with heavy rain.

When I asked them about the 5 degree requirement they cited building codes, the weight of the roof in heavy rain, and what might happen with heavy rain and high wind. I would have thought that the rain would pour off the ends of the roof even if it were flat, and that heavy rain/wind would still be a problem with a 5 degree fall..

Am I crazy to consider a flat roof?

The surface tension particularly when oxidised corrigate iron draws water under the sheet and unless it has enough slope the water wil travel considerable Distance under the sheet. Thats why you need a slope to get the water to flow down hill into a gutter or bed of pebles if you dont mind the spashing. I would increase the slope to 7deg and turn up the ends of the corrogation bottoms to prevent wind driving water up there.
I have just built a toilet out of a metal garden shed that has a flat roof with a tight channel each end touching the bottom of the corrogations and that seems to prevent normal rain getting under the roof.

The channel is actually a “C” Section so it only touches the top and bottom tip of the corrogations and allows water to flow in the channel.

I have a small section of metal (custom-orb) at 4.5 degree pitch. The sarking is continued from the tile roof to end of metal roof.
As there is no requirement for sarking to be provided under meat roof, would this still be considered a non-complying roof pitch?

We are getting our roof replaced through an insurance claim after a severe hail storm. Our old roof has never leaked in the 31 years since our house was built. We have a back verandah that joins on to the back of our house creating a join with a change of pitch. Our old trimdeck house roof overlapped the verandah roof then very neatly went all the way down to the verandah roof and was trimmed off to match the profile (same method used as used along the edge of ridgecapping). The builder said this method no longer met code and refused to redo the roof in the same way. Instead he has used a transition flashing that completely exposes the whole raw corrugated edge of our trimdeck house roof. It only overlaps the flashing by approximately 75 mm. We live in Central Queensland in a cyclone rated area and we receive quite a lot of rain and wind. We know that this overlap is not going to be sufficient to keep rain and moisture out of our roof space. They do not intend putting any trim or flashing over the open trimdeck. Any suggestions of how we would be able to make this watertight with what has been installed?

A slight correction to my description of our old roof – where the house roof overlap met the verandah roof it was not trimmed like ridge capping, it actually neatly married up because of same profile.

Hi Jack, Do you undertake re-roofing works? The current roof aged 20 years, is colorbond corrugated, spans 10m with 200mm header flashings at the ridge, has a pitch of 4.5 degrees, and have about 12 penetrations with short lead dektiles throughout its breadth of 150m. The roofing is supported by a system of timber battens and frames on double-bricked walls. Can re-roofing with trimdek on the existing corrugated roofing work?

is there a point when the length of the run becomes the issue at 5 deg
say 17m long run sheets on a mono shed at the lower end of the run profile will be struggling to discharge the water from the roof and may capillary in.
What I’m trying to ask is is there a maximum length with corro when used at 5 deg.

Hi Jack,

I wish to replace my tile roof with a colourbond roof. Is trimdeck better than corrugated? Will klip lok hi strength be the best option?

My house has 1 velux skylight, which serves no purpose. Will it be easier and less problems to put a colourbond roof if the skylight is removed?

My gas hot water heater flues into the roof. Is this acceptable for a metal roof or will it cause problems?

Is insulation absolutely necessary under a colourbond roof?
