minimum roof slope
 
adding a 22 X 14 room to rear of house; mobile,AL south exposure. Ok, pitch if too low for timberline shingles; So, if not shigles, what roof cover do you recommend for best perf.(1-1/2 on12)--bearing in mind that I have to tie it in with the shingles on two sides of flat roof? thanks again.

Try going to the web page of the shingle manufacturer you are looking at using. They should have a specification of minimum ( and likely maximum ) roof pitch that the shingles should be used on. (might be on the bundle too )

Shingles require a minimum pitch of 3:12.
