I live on the last floor of an old condo building in Old Montreal. Is it ok to remove the dry wall and expose the wooden roof structure? If so, is it ok to remove the foam insulation?
If this is something you feel comfortable doing, and if you have done this before, go for it. Removing the drywall is the easy part, you'll have vapour barrier, and then the insulation. It will be very messy. There are people equipped for jobs like this. But I would just be cautious if you decide to tackle it yourself. Maybe have a mask and hard hat. You never know.
I think you should maybe check with your condo
board, before you remove any drywall on the ceiling or perimeter walls. This may be a fire regulation and probably not allowed to be removed. Also it could be in violation of your own Fire Insurance. There are certain
Fire retardant clear liquids that can be applied ( sprayed or brushed on ) to open wood framing material. ( It's applied often in restaurant construction )
