We have bought a block of land which is downward sloping (1:6m fall) and we are trying to understand roofing options that will handle the SE QUEENSLAND deluge, but also if it leaks we prefer pitched roofs so you can keep an eye on roofs and leaks.
I find a skillion roof doesn't really have this ability.
The issue is with a two storey house on piers and height restrictions (7.5m) I don't really know what roof type is a fit and how the roof and house would fall with the block.
Looking for ideas.

It has nothing to do with the roof but everything to do with the roof drainage compliance that determines the gutter's cross sectional areas and the number and size of the downpipes for the roof areas drained to each downpipe but be aware that QLD houses are often built to the inferior BCA regs rather than to the superior Deemed To Satisfy (DTS) AS 3500.3.
Rainwater Harvesting Best Practice. Cleaner water without diverting downpipes or needing tank overflow.
Supa Gutter Pumper. A simple, inexpensive gutter overflow solution.
