We are an association and do not offer materials more geared to Steep slope, however some of our member manufacturers do. This slope is less than 3/4" in 12" and a commercial standing seam metal roof will suit your needs. Typically they are 24" wide with a 3" seam fastened with concealed clips that are mechanically seamed into the joints. If you were to contact me directly with your location, I could put you in contact with manufacturers in your area.

I would like to specify a metal roof for a large cricket in the middle of the roof of a house I am designing for a friend. However, according to the latest CABO code, metal rooves are not permitted to be used on rooves with slopes below 3 in 12. I assume the metal roof on the 3/4" in 12 roof you are talking about is either not in a CABO jurisdiction or there is some special condition I am not aware of. If there is a loophole I do not know through CABO, please let me know. Thanks for your help.
