Installing A Low Pitch Corrugate Roof

 

The small roof area over the bathroom of our tiny house was a bit tricky to tackle as it needed a much lower pitch of roof. In this video Alan from BioBuild explains how to install a low pitch corrugate roof.

Low pitch roofs are getting more and more common on Tiny Houses, as more people look for ways to maximise the space in the loft area. The most important function of a roof though is to keep the home watertight, so if you are installing a low pitch roof, make sure that it’s done correctly and following the guidelines of the manufacturer.

The roofing material we are using is .55mm marine grade colour steel form Dimond Roofing.

    I’m building a tiny house in chch. About to screw down some rimu flooring. Couple of questions about your underfloor insulation. What are you doing in regards with the bottom of the insulation? Are you fixing sheet metal To close off the cavity? Also was wondering how much weight you saved using steel frame? I’ll keep you updated. Cheers

      Hey Steve. Great that you are building your own Tiny Home! Congratulations on getting started. Yes, I have .55mm sheets of galv steel that I will be fixing to the underside of the trailer to hold in the insulation and close the cavity. In the end, our steel framing came in at a bit over 550kg’s. Steel works out roughly 1 3rd the weight of timber framing. In saying that, because we were going with the lightweight frame, we included more support members, more K bracing etc in our frame, so that brought the weight up a bit, but we felt we could afford to do that because it was a lighter material. Best of luck with your build!
