just to add if you're buying yourself, make sure you get the right flashing kit, with a low pitch roof you don't want the tiles being lifted much, will likely be an EDP flashing but without knowing your tile type etc can't say for certain.

My builder is planning to use centurion tiles.

Sounds like your builder has it in hand, many roofers don't like centurion tiles as they take time to lay and are expensive but they're as good as they get for low pitch roofs. That will not leak at 11.5. if it was below 10 degrees then I'd be getting worried but you'll be fine with that. for the window you can choose standard or recessed installation, with that low pitch and those big tiles standard will be better with an EDW flashing, technically I think velux need 15 degrees but it will be fine if installed right, the flashing is designed to go straight onto the roof ridge and tiles but a touch of sealant all the way round will prevent any leaking.

Thanks very much for the info.

I seen a few velux leak in my time. Most of the times its mainly been down to very heavy rain which causes flash flooding. These where insatlled correctly by the roofers but the huge volume of water back flowed or went further past the flashing itself. All i can recommend is you get it felt correctly underneath the tiles including around the window frame as many roofers will just cut a hole in the felt and simply fit the flashing and tile around the window.
If its a new roof and its being fitted at the same times as the tiles are going down you will most likely get a better fitment.
