Recommended low pitch roofing!


I have just received my building permit to build a patio roof.
It will attach to the house at the rafter birds mouth point.
The main roof has a 9/12 pitch and the new roof is to be 2/12.
The main roof is shingled with asphalt shingles.
I'm looking for suggestions for a low slope roof cover that will meld in with the main roof!

Thanks for the info. OnB. At my last place I had a attached garage with a very low pitch roof (1/12) and its first roof was selvage roll roofing. It was 32" wide of which 16" had the sandy surface, the other was a plain surface.
The first course was nailed on with the plain side downslope. Tar was brushed on to hold the second course.
After its lifespan, I had it replaced with a roll roofing that was self adhesive.
A adhesive was rolled onto the decking and allowed to dry. Then the roofing was laid onto this, similar to the process using contact cement.
It was effective and never leaked or blew off. Unfortunately, this was carried out 15 years ago and I don't remember the name of the manufacturer.
I made this post, hoping that better methods are now available.

Well, if you have common sense and can follow directions, the SA's (self-adhering) systems are a great product that can be put down with minimal tools. Hammer, Utility knife and 80# linoleum roller pretty much. One of the easier systems for a DIY'er.
I have used the flintlastic 3-ply on many many small areas and have really liked the result.

It seems to have promise, how long will they warrantee this roofing.
The self sticking stuff that I had was only good for ten years.
I'm fairly well versed with construction practices. In my life I built my own house and did total renos for two others.
I'm retired now, but was an electrician!
You won't hold this against me, will you! [smile]
