Default What is a mono pitched roof?

I've been trying to understand what a mono pitched roof is as I've
seen this in a number planning applications?

Is this another term for a 'lean to' roof?

At present I have planning permission for a flat roof extension
however I am considering changing this to a pitched roof. Is there a
minimum slope (angle) for a pitched tiled roof?

Thanks

'Mono' signifys 'one'. So I'd say it had one pitch instead of two.

Thats my guess.

Building control at your local authority would tell you. Maybe on their
website.

==================================
Not necessarily 'lean-to' (leaning against a wall) but a single slope:

When I needed information about pitch angle some years ago it appeared to
vary from one place to another depending on local conditions. Your local
building inspector will tell you what is an acceptable pitch in your area.

A Mono-Pitched roof only has a single sloped surface.

Yes - but a lean-to roof usually abuts a wall and is part of an outhouse or
extension. A Mono-Pitch forms the main roof to a house.

Using the correct tile (I forget the name at the moment) you can go as low
as a10 degree pitch but the normal pitch is around 25 - 30 or so degrees.

Hope this helps

Yes.. it depends on the type of tile.. consult the manufacturers data.

My plans have redland regent tiles spec'd for 12.5 degrees. They need
a greater
overlap than standard at that pitch.
