I would like to install a velux but my proposed extension roof pitch is only 11 degrees max. Are there any problems with installing the velux at this pitch without using the optional accessory which raises the velux above 15 degrees? Does anyone know of an alternative soloution?

do a variety of rooflights, their main business, I assume, is conservation and replica lights.
They do a range called "plateau" which will suit your pitch and they appear quite low profile. Good web site with drawings and details.

try talking to velux as they are very helpful with these types of problems. I have just installed 4 veluxs in a flat roof by creating a sloping light well to a 15% pitch. good luck

Perhaps the Velux flat roof system or variants...
