Designing a lean to shed so that it can work with either a low slope metal panel or a modified asphalt shingle installation is done by making the slope 2 in 12. This allow the builder to install either panel no matter what the choice of roofing material is.
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.
Both pitch and slope indicate the incline of a roof, expressed as a proportion of the vertical to the horizontal. Since slope affects how roof systems are installed, including dictating which type of roof-covering material can be applied, understanding how to measure the slope of a roof may be valuable to a home inspector.
