Is a 3 to 12 pitch alowed by code on a standing seam metal roof?
David Stermer
Oscar, Yes. Section 1507.4.2.3 of 2007 Florida Building Code sets the minimum slope at 1/4:12. There is not maximum specified. 3:12 should perform well. Regards, David Stermer

+1 3:12 is fine and even lower is fine with a mechanical seam.
