I have a roof pitch that is below the minimum recommended pitch for your tile. Is there anything

Our roof tiles have been designed to perform down to their respective minimum pitches.

Below these pitches concrete tiles become purely decorative, and require a secondary waterproof barrier to be employed to carry any water down to the eaves and effectively discharge into the gutter.

There are several manufactures' that provide corrugated sheeting systems but these will always raise the overall height of the roof.

Otherwise a marine plywood deck can be installed with counter battens.

Apertures created in flat sub roof sheeting will have to be fully sealed around the up stands to allow water behind the opening to discharge around it.

Apertures cut into corrugated sub roof systems are not allowed as water in the corrugations above the junction will be trapped.
