comment Can I repaint and seal a window sill that has fungus growing out of it?
@FiascoLabs: Yikes. I will try to determine the amount of rot that has occurred.

@Michael: I can certainly provide more pics, and will try the screwdriver test soon. What kind of pics should I take? Regarding the extent of the damage, how do I determine that?

So when you say "any decent contractor," you mean any general contractor and not an interior designer, correct?

comment Is frost at the far edges of my attic a concern?
@getterdun - I just wanted to clarify that this is frost, not ice. Is it still a concern?

@bib - There is insulation below that area, with the lowest layer having a vapor barrier that faces downward.

@DMoore - Unfortunately, I didn't think to take photos, but there are a couple of patches maybe about 6ft x 4ft, although the rafters in that space do not have frost.

comment How to deal with inadequate drainage of my walk-up basement?
@DA01 - I think that my situation is similar to this: inspectapedia.com/aircond/Ducts_in_Slabs.php. The more I read about it, the more depressing things seem.

comment How to deal with inadequate drainage of my walk-up basement?
@HerrBag - The pipe is about 2 feet below the floor (which I think is pretty standard?). I'm not sure what you mean about the "collector" part, but if you're asking whether the water from any gutters lead down into the ground, the answer is no. Also, although I doubt it, I'm not 100% sure whether any other sources feed the pipe, especially since we couldn't get the camera down there.
