comment Is there a way to improve the appearance of a covered front porch roof that uses corrugated plastic roof panels?
Because the porch area is only 5' x 7' , and we will install the roof frame below the gutters, we cannot use a heavier material due to the pitch ~ anything more than 1/4"/12 would bring the roof too low.

Since the cover framework would be installed underneath the gutters we need to use a lightweight material to keep the pitch at a minimum ~ anything heavier would require a greater pitch, which would drop the roof way too low in our situation.

We want to add a covered area over the front porch to keep out the rain.

The house has a hip roof. We don't want to do a complex fix, just want a covered front porch to keep rain, etc out. We agree, the plastic panels do look tacky, but we hoped there was a way to 'disguise' the material.

We purchased and used a yard hydrant (similar to diagram above).

In the diagram the valve is underground. Does this valve automatically shut off or does it need to be manually shut off"

comment Is it okay to 'sandwich' rigid foam insulation between old and new sheet siding?
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.
