Hi
I have a Lean To conservatory I would like to tile but don't know the square metre and pitch, can someone please tell me so I could work out how much light weight tiles I may need for my budget.

Back wall: 5310
From back to front, 4440
Height at back 3085
Front height 2325

Thanks you.

If I'm reading your figures correctly you have a rise of 760mm over a run of 4.44m.

If that's correct, the pitch is 9.73° and a rafter length for a cut roof, (i.e. wall plate to apex) is 4.505m - allow more for eaves overhang.

Check that any covering is suitable for a pitch that low.

So the square metreage (requested) will be 5.310 x ayjay's 4.505 (min.) which equates to 23.92 so allowing for overhangs & wastage at least 25 or even more. Pack sizes may determine quantity to purchase and as materials are not excessively dear, go over & chuck any excess in a skip.
