comment What product will insulate an exterior PVC pipe coming out of the ground with a faucet on it?
In the diagram the valve is underground. Does this valve automatically shut off or does it need to be manually shut off"

Our basic question now is whether we can 'sandwich' the foam between the two types of siding without leaving any air gaps?

We live in Oregon. There is currently R-11 fiberglass in the stud walls. We will use your suggestion and get the foil-faced insulation to go between the old and new sidings.

comment How do we remove a 1940 Crane tub spout base adapter that is inside the wall?
We removed the spout ourselves and it was attached to the adapter. A major plumbing store in our town said the same thing ~ they've never seen anything like it either. We have since called a Plumber to assist us. Unfortunately we will probably need to remove some tile on the tub side to fix this problem, then put a chrome plate over that area ~ tile is very old and can't be matched. There is tile on the other side of the wall in another bathroom so we can't access from there.

We will take pictures. In the meantime we have considered using a pipe wrench to remove the adapter ~ which will destroy the threads, but we will need to replace the pipe anyway. We only need to remove the adapter because we need to replace the 1940 spout, and the adapter is not compatible with current spouts on the market. We would prefer to find a Crane 1940 replacement spout but have been unsuccessful.

We are aware of this process, but in addition to the sinking sidewalk it also looks very worn, so we were wanting to give it a 'facelift'.
