how do you calculate the height of king post of the roof structure?
Answered by Caitlin
It is just simple geometry. For instance, a 24 foot truss with a 12/12 roof pitch would have a height of 12’. A 6/12 roof pitch would have a height if 6’
12/12 means there is a 12” rise for a 12” run. 6/12 is a 6” rise for a 12” run.
Which is the simplest way to get a long post of a roof of base 5mts and pitch degree is 35°
The best way would be to hire a draftsperson to have a look and do the calculation to ensure that you get exactly what you need.

That would be hard to say without knowing more information. If you’d like a quote, you can reach out to our sales staff at 802-886-1917.
From the dimensions, it tells that the house is a square. Therefore, the King post would be half the width of the building.
The height of kingpost is the width divide by 4
