Measuring a roof pitch – Ideally you will have safe access to your roof from inside the building. If not you will need to make your measurement from on top of the roof itself or at the edge of the roof with a ladder. The tools required will be a contractor’s level at least 24 inches long and a tape measure.
Pitched roofs begin with with slopes greater than 3-in-12. The 45-degree roofs seen on A-frame houses are 12-in-12 but roofs can be even steeper – consider the mansard roofs introduced by French Second Empire architects in the middle of the 1800s. These roofs with nearly vertical faces can boast a pitch of 20-in-12.
