How do I measure my roof pitch?
The most accurate method is by using a pitch-gauge placed on the roof itself. This gives an accurate reading of the degree of roof slope (a pitch-gauge can be purchased at local building supply stores). The alternative is to measure the rise over the run.
Will the new ZZZ 213 trim kit be white to match the skylight?
Yes.
Does the ZZZ 199 accessory tray have any flexibility for larger or smaller curbs?
We were able to install an AT on a Texas size curb (22” x 46”) by stopping the sheetrock groove at a predetermined height and removing the white TPE gasket from the tray. So there is minimal flexibility if you’re willing to get a little creative.
