2007 California Energy Code Section 152(b)H

Reroofs over 50% or 1000 sf will require to have cool roofs with certain aged solar reflectance and minimum thermal emittance (or SRI) starting August 1, 2009. One exception appears in item f:

"Buildings that have no ducts in the attic."

What about vaulted ceilings? There are no ducts there, therefore all vaulted ceilings wouldn't have to do this. Is this correct?

These new requirements should have been sent as a supplement update to the 2005 CA Energy Code dated January 1, 2009 (aka the 2008 CA Energy Code). I called the Energy Commission and their response is that it is not valid to use this exception in vaulted ceilings.
