Question poised to me by contractor. What pitch is your roof My answer was that it rises at a 25 degree angle. What is the pitch in his terms?

If I remember right it should be between a 5 and 6 pitch. Between a 5/12 pitch and 6/12 pitch. If it was 27.5 degrees it would be a 6/12 pitch. Enter in "roof pitch" in the Google bar and several sites will come up where you can calculate pitch. The 12 means 12 inches. So that it would be aproximitely 6 inches rise to 12 inches of run. Hope this helps and I hope I remember my roof pitch angles. It has been a few years since I have done it.
