comment Pergola with Corrugated roof sheet
IMHO you'd be a lot better off with a fabric or plastic sheet roof that you remove before winter and put up after winter. Flat roof, lake snows, and no post where the table and ceiling fan are = hairy. I'd fully expect to find the ceiling fan through the table some snowy night. If not, you might need some real structure checks.

comment Exhaust fan hook up. I only have black and white from source. Please help
Not gonna happen in about 99% of installs. You either work with the wire you have, or you repair drywall.

comment Spigot replaced with ball valve- now the water gets out like from a water cannon…why?
You could (and probably should) install a hose pressure regulator (aka pressure reducer) on the valve. $7-14 or so. And/or change back to an ordinary hose bibb valve.

Many LED bulbs have similar issues with heat from the electronics, actually. Heatsinking is the bane of LED bulb design.

comment How to lay of underlayment for a cedar shingle roof
A quote from the linked article: Interlayment is acceptable on a shake roof, but never on a wood shingle roof.

comment How to reduce toilet tank refill noise?
Hm. Seems like kludging on an aerator would be a dandy solution, but I think it would have to be a kludge, as I've never seen such a thing for the application.

comment Which adhesive sealant for bathroom fixture escutcheons?
What does the fixture manufacturer say when you ask them? Or in their product manual, but I'm supposing you've found the directions lacking. 1 I'd not be surprised with no comment, 3 & especially 4 should say something. i.e. 3 might specifically NOT want additional products - but the instructions (or the technical help line) should specify that.
