The ridge can be placed anywhere in the span, from directly middle to either span endpoint. The term “pitch” and “slope” are often used interchangeably, which is incorrect. They do not mean the same thing. And slope provides more valuable information than pitch.
That measurement is the number of inches that the roof rises in 12 inches. Measuring the roof slope from the roof surface will be inaccurate without the use of something to make a flat surface from which to measure the slope. The use of a 48-inch carpenter’s level or a straight 2×4 board may be useful to create a smooth surface that mirrors the slope of the roof.
