Combination of metal and built-up roof

Guest User
I am currently designing a new standing seam metal roof over an existing flat roof. Because the house was built over time on one story over a large area there are some zones on the roof where I cannot acheive a greater than minimum 3:12 pitch (the manufacturer's recommended minimum) so I am contemplating "crickets" of some other roofing system which can handle 1/2" per foot pitch. What system would you recommend.....a slip sheet? Built - up roof? Is there something that would approximate the Colonial red metal roof I'm specifying? The weather is rather moderate (northern California).

The manufacturer of your metal roofing might have a system that would work on these low areas. Be sure to check with them. Aside from that, I would suggest some sort of single ply membrane. Check out Best Regards.
