    Not counting the sloped roof, but referring to the wall nearby, right?

    Each slope roof has a minimum height above it, I believe it starts at 1 foot.

    Now, if that wall is within 8 feet, the gas vent needs to be 2 feet higher than the wall/roof at the wall.

    Of course, they are also supposed to be vertical too (just not sure how far off vertical is allowed where it comes out above the roof).
