comment Fill gaps on deck boards. Deck is now a sun room
You want to keep the look of a deck floor while covering it in a self leveling product? I'm not sure I understand the desired resulting look.

comment Is this poor workmanship on countertop installation and cuts?
I'd vote to reopen if the question was how to correct this problem. Asking if it's acceptable to have a counter top installed like this appears to be a contractual/legal question between yourself and the contractor that did the job.

comment Converting dryer to 4 prong
Since this is the dryer side of the connection, typically the manual has directions on how to attach both 3 and 4 wire cables to the dryer. Make sure to follow those.

It sounds faulty, why not just return it to the store?

comment Why does water in the toilet bowl empty?
Did this start when you changed the toilet? How empty is empty? Does it gurgle near the end? Without flushing if you pour some water into the bowl, does that empty too?

comment Is spinning a new paint can the same as mixing?
Spinner or shaker? Most stores I know shake the cans in a vibrating machine to mix them. Spinning the can would just separate the different densities in the paint mixture.

comment Confused about wiring
"The first 3 way is noted as controlling both lights, while only the second light is controlled by both switches." That's not mentally parsing. Does the second switch not control the first light?

comment Bathroom switch for light and fan
In addition to the above, why did you replace the previous switch? Have you identified which wires are hot vs which wires are switched hot? When putting the wires back as they were on the previous switch, is this based on location of the screw, or did you identify the purpose of each wire?

comment How to wire switched light fixture in place of ceiling fan
How was it wired before, and how did you rewire it? Did you identify which wires were hot, switched, neutral, and ground before disconnecting?

comment 120v outdoor lighting, dual poser source 150w light
It tends to be best to describe the problem you're attempting to solve, rather than the solution you're trying to create.

comment Source of periodic buzzing noise in the walls
It could also be two sources that are resonating with each other at that period. So two things that should be identical but are maybe 1/120th of a Hz off and therefore hit a resonance every 2 minutes.

comment Bathtub Drain Leak near Concrete
Concrete and grout aren't good waterproofing materials, they act like a sponge that absorbs water and eventually let it pass through. This should be corrected by getting to the failing joint and making sure water can't get to the concrete.
