Knowing the pitch of your roof is useful when designing an addition, installing skylights, or cutting new rake boards. Here’s an easy, safe way to determine the pitch from inside your attic. To measure the roof pitch, you’ll need an 18- or 24-inch level, a tape measure, and a pencil.
One of the most commonly used terms in roofing. So what does it mean? Roof pitch (or slope) tells you how many inches the roof rises for every 12 inches in depth. An Example of a roof pitch would be a “6/12 pitch” which means that the roof rises 6 ” for every 12″ inward towards the peak (or ridge).
