Historically the word ”pitch” meant a ratio between the ridge height to the entire span/width of the building or ratio between the rafter length to the building width. And back then, the ridge was typically in the middle of the span. This is no longer the case in modern building practices.
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.
Shingles can be fabricated from a wide range of materials such as asphalt (least expensive) to natural wood, metal, tiles and heavy slate (most expensive). Exact costs will vary depending on aesthetic choices and the vagaries of installation but expect a 2,000 square foot roof clad in asphalt shingles to run around $7,500 dollars.
