This year -- and a -- -- feel like this Easter weekend a for the by water -- senior on the home improvement show with Paul LaGrange. Pretty. Well good morning -- who. -- My court is. All due out insert. -- It. Yeah kilometers sorry. Which we're up about the why. Why. Don't -- it to. What makes -- first well I'm not associated with will serve in any fast. Coming just. Not even passing conversations. Will service and visit different entity from an aging conference solutions. They use save. So they do. Install some of the solar products. -- -- -- solutions. Provides services. There are some differences but I don't have any association with wheels are. But however living -- your question. I suspect Mason that he was describing this those persons are -- Two inches of a closed cell spray phone. At what where were underneath our homes and we're trying to protected. We need a number of different things alone does go through that checklist for you who want to make sure that that that area -- -- your house is not holding any water when it rains. If it is you need to correct that. Second baseman -- your clothes dryer is not that it underneath euros. We also want to make sure that you don't have any plumbing pipe leaks like an ice maker than maybe trending need to heat your home so wanna keep it tries as much as possible. The other things we want to control and trying to gain. With that it insulation products. Specifically the clothes so product is we want to have a control air. That's thermal mean separating the hot in the colder the inside conditions in outside conditions. The second control ever wonder trying to achieve is a complete -- barrier which the close cellphone does that for you as well. The third control -- we're trying to achieve. Would be a paper harder protect. Water vapor from permeating through that fortunately getting inside -- house. So when you -- to a close so product you need to which -- stick to gain all three of those controllers at this described. -- appreciated thank you I Mason have agreed Easter weekend. From the village on your on the home improvement show with -- LaGrange. Thank you guys. I have a situation I don't -- -- -- -- -- a covered porch. And most -- about fifty feet long extinct life I'll probably. How about forty years old this and that. And one portion of the forged -- to be eroding a car that Michael White dust that can -- -- for that. I hit it in the last six statements and so on. And it's. -- Russian then periodically it just comes back with a white crops like on any ideas are caught in the. So John we what you're describing is is what's called up for -- and after essence is more sure this coming through the bottom of that country that's. It is is because people think a country's border with -- true or not it's nothing but it is a big court sponsor its ports and allows more to trouble through it. And as that more should travel through its picking up some of the some of the pieces parts of the of the all of the components of the country it's actually Lego leaching salt -- speak -- what most people -- to -- so crystals. Initially -- crosses but it looks like. It OK so what we're trying to. Dude John is too slow that they'll profound that from happening. If you have when it rains if you water it it's it's -- along the -- lab went into your house you need to change the flow that water. You do have a positive slope or positive grate away from your house it's awarded -- -- -- against it. If you have dealt spots. You know maybe extend the pollen despotic departed further away from her house. You have sort superstar and it is not drink quickly and imports come over flowing a little bit correct that. So your first lot of defenses source control meaning when it rains to the water away from the home as quickly as effectively as possible. There are. Well is this only happening at the -- torch. So. Here's here's that though the part that. You can do it it works. However it's you your perfecting the bush can be in the top of the country. The bush has -- giving the -- in the country. But it you know prevent -- from coming up -- put a two part epoxy. Floor patched -- coat the entire -- over the top -- that. That country covered patio and prevent that from happening. There are not talking about the Epoch to eat and eat or proxy Spain you -- You see folks redo their Raj with a light rays put the lakes are. That's not what I'm talking about -- -- talk about a two part oxy. Floor patched that you would hire someone similar to installer installs right now. In and they would crawl and no one. And then it would probably one puts on to finish on top of it. To make sure it's it's it's not slippery that he has traction and that that what you can probably in interest. Giant Easter weekend. For battery Paula -- on the home improvement show with LaGrange. All the rhetoric. An attitude changed. On. And back -- it probably that -- Shingles. And debating whether. Should own up to them or I should -- -- -- -- Who can you describe to meet the style -- isn't hitting -- Typos that he approved following a round. Oh. A square rectangle fairly simplistic. While. Paula you you have one of those homes where he met a roof would be that expensive to do. It in and out saying -- that expensive as it is a relative you know terminology from the standpoint when you compare York. You're hip -- following around to the a home that has a lot of different. Pitch -- was pitches and valleys and offsets and ups and fails those homes are very experts to do with the metal product. In New York case a -- product is could be more expensive than ACO -- asphalt shingle. However it won't be a premium cost the -- of the -- and the truth is he's really straightforward which is to your advantage. So really this point the deciding factor is -- the cost budget because of metal -- is more expensive however -- last a lot longer. So their forward here you know if you if you look at -- useful life and asphalt -- and that investment that return investment. And you also look at the return investment useful life of metal roof and beautify the moderates could -- -- the better so this is a long term house for you. Where you looking to do it so when you silly peachy you know higher -- value. Then maybe something you would consider. One thing I would I would ask you to do is make sure you find an installer. In understands hey I live in Metairie live in a hurricane zone would ever refuse install it's gotta withstand today's new standards. Of you know 12240. Mama or 32 -- win. From a you know being removed and and and whose -- -- event. Should. Epic has been. It cannot -- install -- I would because that also gives an opt in to inspect the existing roof -- so if you have any spots that needs some attention due to rotted because you can address that. It also gives an opportunity that if that existing roof decking is not fastened to a secure Welch -- rafters you can -- nail it. That also allows you to use a better upgrade it. A delay in the roof on the limit -- something else you may consider -- this would be true poll for whether you go with metal. Or the asphalt shingle roof is in todays technology there is what's called cool roof. Products those cool roof products you can get medium. And dog -- -- reflects some of the repeat he from the sun back into the embassy here yet it doesn't get as hot. And so we've if you upgrade new republic strongly consider that. Because that that would give because -- an engine efficiency proven disposed.

From the applause -- year old home improvement show with Paula grange. Good morning LaGrange. Questions he is back in 2000. Construct that -- -- -- And ready to change the way the system that could have been having a little bit issues with question out and current like. On long on almost hesitate. To remove all the moisture on the agency's system should not have an exchange -- -- there. OK so Ruben. Primarily our exploration systems to a few things force the two things they most you think about is they removed temperature and also remove moisture. So proper sizing. And decide if -- systems crucial to overall corporate remorse control inside your home. And that's the -- Morse patrol while your conditions operating and running however when you build a high energy efficient home. You need supplemental did you get a fine. And like -- my house I've built a 1212 years ago it's it's considered -- high performance house. It's towards energy efficiency in York while he's concerned and in the spring in the fall Tom. My recognition or heater does not operated at all because they're culpable temperature wise it's -- my house. -- I still have internal moisture that I'm generating that it would reading for cooking or cleaning. We have in the sometimes in the winter we you know got a outdoor pets or plants and saw the house the -- generating and contributing to the internal moisture. But I can do 12 things -- can use a supplemental demon of far removed them moisture and keep the temperature fairly constant. Or I can't turn my air conditioner on and purposely. We reduce the temperature inside my house to remove moisture. I don't like the second minute a new people who use that method but it gets too cold in the home and it is not very energy efficient to do that. And there are going to be some times when it stuck around long enough to remove the moisture. So but he supplemental the humidifier. Is part of the equation. For removing internal moisture what you do not need to operate your recognition system. Does that. Is the -- runny nose now love in -- It does however it's a lot cheaper the -- the demon a -- is supposed to -- -- your recognition system. At the humidifier or an average on a home that is considered high performance and tested and verified. Of you know the way the envelope in the dock system and windows and everything we're all put together. Higher on average -- me. It's been awhile since have done the calculations with the recent utility cost. With electric cost but it didn't -- years back and and I've I use anywhere from 25 to thirty dollars a year to operate but the human afar. Not a lot of money. Inside the body's side is like the what was separate living room. Area and as -- one because. -- -- When I would go well prices it calculation on what you can someone would come in. My home and give me an idea what what -- -- -- -- That that's that's correct and this could be an important concept of making sure that individual that HTC install -- that dealer is criticize your recognition system remote -- A manual -- calculation. With that menu. HTC dealers could be able to determine how much outside air needs to come into your house. And also which is the violation part of it and how much supplement -- do you -- define you need so those are all done with actor ACC a taco calculations specifically the manual achievement. How do you. Air conditioning all of that later it's been great with an -- not yet public some of these -- -- -- school -- Change our objectives as -- -- really don't and the problem is that there in June the latest technology offered you know today. -- -- applause is that correct -- yeah. So -- How suggest you call 23 these guys that them that could recommend in these folks are in critical places. That understand. High performance understated or quality comfort proper design engineering. It's -- most importantly the execution the installation. Sometimes week week. The problems that I see in the field. It's not that the in they purchased the wrong piece work type of equipment the unions all of very well these guys to at all Graco -- across the board. So public call Michael Nash and Nash heating and air. Are there right. I would edit it'd take a break -- I've got to get a break but if you hold on to Japan and paper ready and he had another question so we're gonna put on hold it will come back -- right after the break. I'm still -- construction consultant Paul LaGrange will be right back with more of the home improvement show on WW well this is the home improvement show on this beautiful Saturday have Easter weekend let's wrap up with -- -- Placer -- you -- Japan you -- your paper ready. -- US information for Ruben and and and at the quick question -- -- -- -- that you're asking for recommendations at three HTC deals that understand improper design and installation. Four -- forms houses I'll contact Michael -- heating and -- heating and air. A contact clay Albers. At Albers heating and -- In the third will be John Burkhardt at Burkhardt heating and air you can look up altered those guys Nash Albers Burkhardt Morlon. Act the last question would be -- Opted out almost there fourteen years. Should I did he the ducks as the mama in Arctic cat committee and it created well mold mildew whatever you know dot. Check it at the cleaned out and oppose those guys really do an effective job. That it's you know that going in. Claim that they created because I don't really understand why you would know whether it's been effectively clean on either side. Rubin do you have flexible stalker Richard doc.

But below that box everything apart -- and so I'm happy no we have -- -- dot org and you know you you're captive. -- the -- -- -- -- yes my question is do they do an effective job is coming at the it clean feeling. It it depends on the size in the shape. Of the dock with the -- can do it effectively and not and you know there are some folks actually do this with a camera and take -- videotape of which she received before after and actually doing the planning process. -- it's just -- heart one of those folks that has that technology so that you can verify that it stuck -- -- If it's dirty it's not a bad idea if you have -- don't view reflects that you couldn't do it the such shipments -- It's certainly a possibility list are -- -- open option -- thanks for your call if you're -- say witness we've got to take a break to the -- -- coming right back with more of your questions.
