This slope works well for sheds that are fairly narrow, like 4 to 6 feet, but for sheds that are 8’ or wider the shed roof becomes unsightly high. For instance if the top of the wall starts at 8 feet high it will be almost 11 feet high on the high side of the shed.
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.
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.
Both the asphalt shingles and metal and application techniques will allow you to have a lean to shed and keep the roof height down so your neighbors don’t wonder where the sun went. By understanding how lean to shed plans can detail the proper design to facilitate a low slope material installation.
