Water Heater Vent Termination

I’ve seen this before, the same scenario is at my mother-in-law’s house. Everything I search says this vent should extend up the side and above the roof?

I don’t know where your at but here it has to go above the roof and it appears to be less than 3 feet from those windows

Thanks, Charley. I’m in WV (no, that is not an outhouse!). The 3 foot and above roof line are what I am remembering, but can’t find it in the Code Check.

Mike, the best thing to do is check the water heater installation manual.

It looks wrong from here but you have not provided any information on the heater type or make.
