    SMACNA Upside the head.

    SMACNA promulgates the sheet metal standards for the industry, I would start there. If it is an actual code versus a reference standard issue, most states subscribe to the IBC and by extension the IMC and the IECC (International Energy Conservation Code).  I am not sure where the residential portions are broken out nor am I sure that this helps you. But your local SMACNA chapter would be where I would start.
