Roof Pitch to Degrees Equivalents
This drawing demonstrates how many degrees rise for each pitch of a typical roof. Look at the column labeled pitch, then look under degrees to get the corresponding amount of degrees. Example; 8/12 pitch = 33.75 degrees.

How to determine roof pitch ?

Measurement of your house roof pitch is one of the most important things while constructing pitched roof. You have to pay higher cost for steeper pitch. So you must roof calculate the pitch very carefully and correctly to know about the cost that you need to pay. If your house roof is built with multiple pitches, then square per roof must be calculated differently. For this you can take help from roof pitch factor chart.

Whoopsie, I remembered my trig incorrectly. Please ignore the question I sent a little bit ago.

Sorry.

For a 6/12 roof, the short leg of the right triangle formed is exactly 1/2 of the other leg. As I recall that is a distinguishing characteristic of a 30/60/90 right triangle. Why then is the angle 26.57 instead of 30?

I know the 26.57 works, as we sheeted the gable end of a 6/12 roof today and used 27 degrees as the rake angle. I’m just curious why this is so.
