    Are you talking about people, roofs, roads. What has height measurement to do with all this?
    No I am doing some redecoration, from doors to everything where accuracy of height matters the most. suppose say a door frame for example.

    take this image for example.

    Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book/Vocational/Forestry - Wikibooks, open books for an open world

    In the first image , the object is straight. while In the 2nd image the object in yellow is not.

    So what would I say here. It is not exactly straight but tilted / sloped/ bend down a bit .

    I think 'sloping' would do. One might add 'from the horizontal' for added precision and clarity, depending on the item and context.
    how to speak the exact sentence? It's slightly sloping down/up from horizontal to the left ( direction ie) ? or It is bend a bit towards the left?
