The most important thing would to review its structual integrity. This can be accomplished by removing some of the soffit panels and taking a peak inside. It could be a a rafter tail is comprimised or broken. Therefore, it would need to be fixed by lifting and sistering. (placing dimensional lumber beside the rafter tail and fastening together). Another fix would be to install a column to support the roof. Installing the column would require a stable footing below, (a concrete pad) and lifting the roof to the proper slope and affixing the colum to the sub-fascia board on the eave. The column method would provide the best support over time and combat heavy snow loads, however a "post" would be in the walk path most likely.

The minimum pitch for an asphalt roof for Asphalt shingles is 2/12 or more as long as you use at least one layer of ice and water shield and one layer of synthethic felt under the architectural shingles.  I would never use a three tab shingle on this low pitch roof.   Below 2/12 pitch, I would use either an EDPM Membrane or the Resisto 2 0r 3 ply roll roofing membrane system.

Recommended not less than 4:12 pitch. Also would advise in Western NC to install ice & water guard in place of standard underlayment.

Yeah, I agree with David, it actually depends on the faucet whether it has an alternator or not. Even I have also come across a similar problem once but thanks to the team of commercial plumbing service NJ who helped me fix the leak in the faucet. They save a lot of my money and time too.

I don't think so.  Nothing that will last under heat, water and weight.

The best solution would be to remove the existing shower base and install one that was properly set up to drain. There are different solutions depending on what you have existing there currrently. What kind of material is the shower base?

Search for a door protection kick plate. This will cover current damage and protect for any future...

Depending on what year your house was built, you might have asbestos in that popcorn ceiling. Typically, anything older than 1979 is a good chance that it could have asbestos; our company regularly finds that with popcorn ceilings. We always send a environmental hygenist out to our jobs to confirm whether or not a house is "hot" for asbestos. It's preventative protection for our workers.

Removing popcorn ceilings requires a lot of preparation to prevent contamination of the other areas of your home. You will need to cordon off the area (room) with some kind of plastic covering the walls, floor, and entry area - this is for your own protection. Also, you will need to wear personal protective equipment including a tyvex type of suit that covers you from head to toe, gloves, safety glasses, and most importantly - a respirator. These things are necessary to keep you safe from breathing in the microscopic fibers of asbestos and preventing you from getting asbestosis or mesothelioma (a tumor of the mesothelium, often malignant and thought to be caused most commonly by the inhalation of asbestos particles.)
