A couple of things first. -- -- and -- have been. It's vinyl -- it's an eleven year old house. I was wondering. -- it didn't salute for so long which it's it's kind of warping and it it actually came. Can we -- that you'll awful law. Also wondering. What would be the benefits -- when it replaced all the siding with party. Well certainly our party is a week he liked Tom product compass and it is deciding board vs hollow sounding. You actually get a higher praise value. Well with that Combs you have two choices with the with the synthesis. Product. You can actually buy with -- -- colored finish on that typically has you know very long warranty. -- the second option would be to pay -- yourself and then we don't want you start pinning a product. That's to be something you could have to do every numbered years to keep opinion fresh. So. I I think it's it's that -- a great opportunity for you I think it's also an opportunity that if you wanted to. What you take off that -- -- you can inspect the house -- to make sure it's installed. As per the you know the god wants -- manufacture that product if not you can make some improvements or if you also want to put some additional. Insulation board a continuous insulation -- in the -- out of your house to get some. If you the window that you went that you replace that's a good time to do because -- -- things that. Become exposed and easier to gain access to so you can make those improvements while you're incorporating it missed. Changing the bottles nodding to recent issues -- reports on. Okay so well -- do it that -- -- our legal and that follows two you know. I'm sure -- -- I would lose too much -- Investment house. I would think so no I think that's a good improvement. -- -- in the I wanted to note it is if you -- contractors in the area. That market in touch with Chua an announcement on and on deck and -- York looked around and couldn't find anyone. -- you -- email from -- I give to your and your. Can I called walk law bought LE BAT. And give you marks on number. -- 46690235. And mark I'm happy to 66902350. He'll be happy to come removed you're siding. In and repeatedly run would behind it replace it if you have issues with your house trapped repair it. -- and installed -- sounding as well. -- -- Yes he does is there are incidents. I don't have a good weekend thank you to and from New Orleans and Mandy Iran with Paula grange on WWL. K pollen to find out I haven't yet that is still in pretty good shape but it's -- splintered on it actually grandchildren that are allowed. There -- -- at the same material made by stealing him and so by air and wondering if you had any experience at and how they work on. Covering the -- Albert kind of resurfacing at -- -- -- it. Shura amended that probably what you gonna have to do besides the use this to products which BioWare and I've used both -- work well. It you -- all depending on the the type of splinters of the locations splinters you may have to do some preparation to the -- itself. Besides the registration -- meaning. You -- a decent sanding. As so to would read those directions very carefully and how to prepare the attack typically in most cases you know there's there's a cleaning. And even a bright are involved in addition restoring attack but -- fewer concerns specifically about the splinters. I don't want you to try to match expectations. Of what you think that these two products that result -- -- without some additional effort. When you're part about sending the -- dale first. Well I have one more question they talked about Palm Pre feeling some of the you know holes where it's kind of eighteen or something like that. -- there -- specific trying to talking she used to make those coverages before. And also can products once people thicker than the other Sunday is wondering if you had a preference. I actually like -- -- product more with the -- Com and amateur which ones that never actually comparative. Perspective. Let's get back you use your first question is in reference not clocking describe to me that type. Whole outlook should try it. You know that sort. Deteriorate a little bit -- it's -- that is something like that in the city. He'll send her to come and again. You can actually heal and also the product like a pre toting up in the areas and then Cotto -- Yeah I I think I would use and sending in some prepping and then I would use the very product for the pre filling give them before with it. Okay can you put that their product. Vertically on the -- also. Who have never done that calm you know what you could read the manufacturers' practice of never done it for a I don't know.

Lesson of the Scotia got into an existing discussion about a controversy in Chicago. About their Christian symbols and and son. I'm atheist signs promoting secularism.

How accurate is that. Story based on historical and scientific evidence. A doctor for public Santo is a phenomenal -- he lectures around the world. That's going to be a -- Angela it's really interesting information on this Easter weekend 6 o'clock tonight presidential here into the WL. From Metairie -- your -- with Paul LaGrange. Good morning mr. LaGrange. I know we're running close to the end of the hour but wanted to get your general thoughts and comments. About when you're building a new house if you used two kinds of insulation. Specifically use the standard baton in the walls but they've used foam in the attic in order to use that as a storage area. Well Alan that's actually time at my home until my house 1212 and appears ago. And -- exterior walls or airtight mean negative I have a good defective air carrier when the exterior. All my bottom playing top place or air sealed. Home I have a continuous insulation board around the outside of my plywood -- So I'm actually getting robust continuous uninterrupted. And insulation board behind my month in the year. And I got to write it appears to inciting brick Stucco. Into the inside -- cavity is a properly installed. And faced fob request that. Amnesty properly installed no impressions no voids -- missing spots in -- in full contact with the accent does she rock. Which is the surface it's insulating. If you do that picture while assembly he performed very very well it doesn't have to be spray foam. The problem with that is -- when does it like it just described it except the folks like myself. And our value of -- -- less back when properly installed does the same or they're used properly installed -- cells brief home. So or values -- about it all comes down to execution. Having that extra while assembly combined with a truly. Properly installed and -- it -- -- assembly. Work's phenomenal. Like -- -- I didn't vote nephews go he can be done when you find someone takes the care and has the knowledge to do it right. Are you sure that the the humidifier would be needed is that sort of part of the package situation closed with a date the man. I highly suggest you do with the humidifier for two reasons. As an outdoor air make -- -- the bringing your outside there you want to filter do you modify inside your home. Secondly you can indeed if you if a high performance house. You can do need a supplemental DB to far in the spring and in the fall you knock it needed in the middle of winter when things are very very try. You knock -- needed win and home. When in the summertime when your commission running all the time the coach -- she's doing that for you you will need it. Is that the humidifier. For the purpose of internal moisture removal in the spring and also in the fall. Already well thank you very much for Europe comments I appreciate. All right -- it's called and happy Easter weekend if you have a quick question force our numbers 2601870. To all free 8668890870. And a text number is they said the 87. -- your attacks and more of your questions are coming up next on -- with our construction consultant Paul LaGrange. This it's -- home improvement show. Deborah bureau it's the Saturday of Easter weekend and a beautiful day this is a home improvement show and from -- CN GF you're on with Paula grange -- every WL. I'm a deliberate -- there -- questions for you. -- The -- want to apply. Like a creek home. All of a sudden build my own home or have you know subcontracted companies build. And they're. I'm going to be pink hair -- And now trying to figure out. About the quality. Of the two army might agree on you -- And quit forward would be better for many use the current -- -- US specifically about -- homes. Or you or or that type of approach but because I I have bidding green homes and that they're done well. It's it's been a number years as a business out of but I have actually I have customers who -- -- and build their home. And I've been there to do some performance testing worn in -- efficiency and and I was quite impressed with the with the quality. Uncertain about the -- on the takes to keep the project. Under -- complete. However the I haven't seen anything wrong with the creek home. It's you do have more flexibility with a custom builder. -- you can design things exactly you wanted. You can which make change orders you have more flexibility of the changes. With green homes. You -- have as much flexibility but you do have some flexibility it's it's a good product. In I would not be. Now I don't think out I would have any issues with him recommending you feel like they're playing you like to change that you can make. For -- to your home. I don't know if this could be that much of a difference to go to a custom home builder in what -- look for very specific. Product that pretty does not offer. Popular and well. Appreciate that and will as far as like out in -- bank -- Is that more wise to do. You know we're pretty -- -- you know get some aren't. I don't think -- -- make much of a difference did you know it cash cash today really as far as I'm concerned does doesn't make a difference. I think you wanna take those monies and put it in a escrow account and whether it's for a custom home -- or for Creighton and as those. Those percents of complete construction is complete a certain stage. You were hiring independent Specter has -- expected to verify that at home was who has completed -- that. 20% or 4% to 6% completes -- stage in order to release those funds from the escrow account to pay that builder. All of accurate -- that mark. I really appreciate the input. All right Jeff night -- weekend. A Paula -- is our construction consulted every Saturday on the home improvement show.
