What is the Roof Pitch?

Roof pitch is the angle at which the roof on a building sits. Overseas, it’s often expressed as a ratio or as ‘rise over run’. ‘Rise’ refers to the vertical distance between the roof rafters and the roof’s highest point, under the ridge. ‘Run’ means the horizontal distance between the external wall of the property to the mid-point of the wall. In Australia, roof pitch is most accurately expressed in degrees as an angle.
