    Cap;
    Down here, we just don't. The roof already has a substancial load on it with the barrel tiles, we don't go up there to vert vent.

    Sledge hammer and hook to get under the tiles.

    Sometimes you can yank them off by hand.

    They get slippery. Just another reason to not bring a charged line to the roof.

    People always say the west coast does things differently - I just didn't realize how different...
