    906.2 Clearance Each vent shall terminate not less than 10 feet from, or not less than 3 feet above, an openable window, door, opening, air intake, or vent shaft ...

    None of these things occur on a normal house roof. The main items protruding from a single-family residence roof are usually exhaust, so I am wondering if I am mistaken in interpreting a roof-mounted attic vent as an opening?
    Thank you.

    I found this website, which tries to explain plumbing code while explaining what terms mean.
