Explanation:
See link for explanation of terminology.

This is not my field of specialization, but as I understand it, they are talking about the pitch/slope on an opening in the roof (e.g. window).

On second thought, it is probably more likely to be something like "jamb pitch" (i.e. pitch of jamb). Does that fit in the context?
