## What is a 6 12 roof pitch in degrees?

26.57 degrees

What is A 6/12 Roof Pitch? When you are talking about roof pitches, the first number is the number of inches the roof rises every 12 inches. The angle on a 6/12 roof is 26.57 degrees.

**How do you convert roof pitch to degrees?**

How to Convert Standard Roof Pitch to Degrees

- To convert a roof slope expressed as “X-in-12″ to a roof slope expressed in degrees, find the arctangent of (rise/run).
- Divide the rise (that’s the “X”, yours will vary) by the run (always 12).
- Using a scientific calculator, find the arctangent of the result.

Convert Roof Slope from Degrees to Rise-in-Run

Roof Angle in Degrees | Roof Slope as Rise-in-Run (X-in-12) |
---|---|

69° | 31.261 in 12 |

70° | 32.970 in 12 |

71° | 34.851 in 12 |

### Is a 12 12 roof pitch 45 degrees?

What angle is a 12 over 12 pitch? Roofs with a pitch of 12/12 are approximately 45 degrees, depending on how exact you’d like to be in your measurement. Check out our roof angle chart for more examples of the exact angles (expressed in degrees) of common roof pitches.

**What is a 12 12 pitch roof?**

Pitch is further defined as rise over run. A roof that rises 4 inches vertically for every 12 inches horizontally is said to have a 4/12 pitch. A roof that has the same rise as it does run is said to have a 12/12 pitch. A 12/12 pitch is also a 45° angle.

**What is the pitch of a roof?**

Pitch Of Roof. The pitch of a roof is the term used to indicate the slope of the sides of the roof surface or the inclination of these sides with respect to a horizontal plane or a surface absolutely flat and parallel to the horizon.

#### What is the roof pitch?

The pitch of a roof is the term used to indicate the slope of the sides of the roof surface or the inclination of these sides with respect to a horizontal plane or a surface absolutely flat and parallel to the horizon. Evidently the pitch of any roof may vary to an almost infinite extent.

**What is roof pitch?**

Roof pitch is what roofers call the angle of the roof relative to a horizontal line. It can be measured in degrees or what is known as “pitch”. Pitch is further defined as rise over run.
