comment What are my landlords required to provide me with?
... and of course, code only applies at the time the dwelling was built, so if the code at the time didn't require ventilation, it isn't illegal not to have it

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the question is about the legality of charging a renter for damage

comment gas oven wouldn't ignite yesterday but will today
Voting to close because this isn't about home improvement. Whether you still want it looked at and if you want to spend the money is solely up to you.

comment What size conductor do I need to bond water and gas piping?
If there is an overcurrent then there is not a ground fault and no current will flow on the ground wire. You can reference the tables in this answer diy.stackexchange.com/questions/15280/… where the ground wire size is dictated by the size of the service entrance conductors, not the largest conductor beyond the service entrance.

comment What size conductor do I need to bond water and gas piping?
In an overcurrent situation, the ground has nothing to do with the other wires melting. Many houses do not have a grounding rod since the ground and neutral (from the utility) are tied together at the main panel. The ops question is about gauge of wire required for the ground and your answer does not address this.

Those look like traditional ceiling tiles that are usually made up of wood fibers, not Styrofoam

comment What is the best way for a DIY'er to work with contractors/inspectors?
I'm not sure there is really an "answer" to this, it seems like it would mostly be opinions. Remember that stack exchange is not a forum.

comment Can I increase gas pressure to a stove?
In my experience your utility will only test the meter outside, beyond this, it's your problem.

comment Can I increase gas pressure to a stove?
Are the flames nice and blue and even? Or orange and "lazy"? higher end stoves will have burners with higher BTU ratings. It takes a lot of energy to boil an entire pot full of water and it is relatively normal for it to take a while.

comment Water in window well flooding basement
You're probably right about it being regional. It's the norm around here in houses going back to the 60's
