comment My house has Exterior & Interior insulation. Would it be advisable to remove the internal?
This answer is misleading: there's a huge difference in internal and external insulation, when it comes to vapor barriers (and thus moisture, mold and rot).

comment What's the proper way to flash an inside roofing corner, with self-stick membrane?
Here I'm asking about the top of where a sloped roof meets the corner of a yet higher wall. The WRB is for redundancy (here it's a tile roof).

comment What should I do about a crack in the concrete slab in my living room?
How thick is that slab (dig down to find out). That's important. Emecole 555 or a bottle of concrete filler will do you zero good.

comment What Should I Use to Seal the Concrete Slab under the Joists?
You're right to have the concern. What's on either side, can you make underfloor vents that exit to adjoining spaces?

comment Pre-made rain cap for plumbing vent? (Preventing rust-through of galvanized pipe in the walls)
@isherwood, that leaves four more, all buried in the attic. The run in the photo I will abandon in place and cap the top. The rest are inaccessible without major work.
