How do you measure a roof cut?
To find your roof’s total square footage:
- Measure the length and width of each plane on the roof (including dormers) then multiply length times width.
- Add the square footage of each of the planes together.
What’s the pitch of a roof?
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).
What are the most common roof pitches?
The most commonly used roof pitches fall in a range between 4/12 and 9/12. Pitches lower than 4/12 have a slight angle, and they are defined as low-slope roofs. Pitches of less than 2/12 are considered flat roofs, even though they may be very slightly angled.
Here’s our step-by-step guide for measuring the total roof area for installation:
- Step 1: Start by sketching out a top-down view of your home’s roof. …
- Step 2: Measure the length of your roof. …

- Step 4: Repeat Step 3 for the other side of the roof.
How do you measure a roof edge?
Measure out from the face of the wall below the fascia or rafter tails to a point that aligns with the outer edge of the roof. Multiply this measurement by the length of the roof from end to end, and add this to the first result. Double the result to determine the total area of the roof at both sides.
