Fixing old Kilp-Lok roofing

Print-friendly Version

Question

Is it possible to remove a piece of Kilp-Lok roofing and replace it without wrecking it? If so, how?

I have a Kilp-Lok skillion extension to a fibro/tile home which leaks from the eaves. What's the metal supposed to overhang the guttering by? How far under the tiles should it extend? What should the fall be?

Answer

It is definitely not a good idea to unclip Klip-Lok roofing once it is locked in place. Unclipping it may damage the clips and metal coating plus you will void any guarantee on the product.

These are the minimum pitches:

  • Klip-Lok 406 at 0.42mm thick, minimum roof pitch 2 degrees (1 in 30) overhang 300mm Klip-Lok 406 at 0.48mm thick, minimum roof pitch 1 degrees (1 in 50) overhang 400mm
  • Klip-Lok 406 at 0.60mm thick, minimum roof pitch 1 degrees (1 in 50) overhang 600mm Klip-Lok 700 at 0.42mm thick, minimum roof pitch 2 degrees (1 in 30) overhang 150mm
  • Klip-Lok 700 at 0.48mm thick, minimum roof pitch 1 degrees (1 in 50) overhang 150mm Klip-Lok 700 at 0.60mm thick, minimum roof pitch 1 degrees (1 in 50) overhang 200mm
  • Klip-Lok 700 High Strength at 0.42mm thick, minimum roof pitch 2 degrees (1 in 30) overhang 150mm Klip-Lok 700 High Strength at 0.48mm thick, minimum roof pitch 1 degrees (1 in 50) overhang 200mm Longline at 0.70mm thick, minimum roof pitch 1 degrees (1 in 50) overhang 450mm

If the Klip-Lok sheets extend under the existing roof tiles then you should also consider turning up the edge of the Klip-Lok so as to minimise or prevent any water running into your home.
