A change in the pitch of your roof will impact everything from the way that your roof looks, the way it manages water, and more. It’s not a cheap project, so be aware that you’re getting into a significant renovation if you are changing your roof’s shape.

The first is from the top of the roof. Simply mark a level at 12″. Keeping the level balanced measure the distance from the level to the roof surface. If a roof has many layers of shingles your measurement could be slightly innaccurate using this method.

A roof that rises 8 feet over a 24-foot span was said to have a “1 to 3” pitch. If the rise is 4 feet over a 24-foot span, then the roof pitch was said to be “1 to 6.” The pitch can be expressed numerically as a fraction. The pitch fraction represents a certain amount of vertical rise over the entire span.
