Polish term or phrase: polac
"...bada sie...gdy okno zamontowane jest w polaci dachu..."

Roof area...?

I figure it can't really be "surface," simply because a [roof] window is not mounted on a surface, but a in a hole...

"Roof slope" perhaps...?

(an "okno polaciowe" is a slope-mounted window, a distinction from a dormer-style window, which projects from the roof surface)

Had "roof slope" at one point, but chickened out and used simply, "roof area," per the weak dictionary translation of "polac." So now I've gone back to "roof slope" and indeed feel comfortable with it.

Thanks!
