b) Roof Extensions. Extensions of vent pipes through a roof shall be terminated at least 12 inches above the roof unless a roof is to be used for any purpose other than weather protection.

(See Appendix K.Illustration E.)
e) Extensions Outside Building. No soil, waste or vent pipe extension (except for vent terminals as provided in subsections (b) and (d) of this Section() shall be located on the outside of a wall of any building, but shall be installed inside the building. Wet vents located within an exterior wall or in a wall adjacent to an unheated space shall be protected from freezing.
