Advise on a 1/2:12 residential metal roof

We are planning on putting metal roofing on a residence. The pitch is 1/2:12. The roofing will go down upon a substrate of 5/8" OSB with Ice and Water Sheild on top. We have been told that we can use Pro-Panel II. It has also been suggested we run a bead of sealant the length of all seams. Any specific advise for us? Thanks Glenna

Most manufacturers of that style roofing will not want it applied to that low pitch. You really need a mechanically seamed panel. Do not do anything that is not within the manufacturer's specifications.
