Some -- -- there is a it didn't. I'm not the problem is -- we discovered termite damage and not the man can't come out and you know. Treat to house because under the house because of the water. So -- really like a -- emergency trying. -- -- Would what I like to do is to call a local foundation companies have these homes that elevate -- houses. I thought they they held a service lets call pumping sand it's much like he described actually takes it and put it through a pump. And they -- sprayed the sand underneath. The footprint of your home elevating the height of the -- the soul that you one ahead it. Two things -- what you think about you wanna have that space on the Charles higher than the surrounding grass and landscaping around your home. You also want to have it. Where it's not a problem holding in one -- like one quarter of the house may be low and others. You wanna make sure it's it's trailed in the sinner higher in the center and -- the edges so that. If water gets underneath their flight medium may flutters like that. It will stay there and part of a two week out -- pushed out. Because the -- -- was pitched and crowned the forced water out of it. Okay now accompanied. That are on -- Eskew. Did these companies. I'm just saying -- would take complex. Outstanding play. -- I -- We should just do so are and I don't know what -- would do it to termite treating and and. It's it's it's going to be saying is that it will pump clay is dubious intro like rivers Sanders -- -- -- -- recipient. Or it's actually that the property was actually -- pumps him because they've they've run through -- It now would I would suggest -- that watcher terminate storm comes back to repair. For the termites they need to re treat all of its -- that your adding. -- That's going to be something they can treat -- It's the same standard that you -- a -- Ian in Metairie -- in the South Shore that people feel around their houses.

So a city so he sees something that really came out but in the past. 1214 months here in in in the states and this product is. All the research I've been doing all that is is fairly impressive. I have not known anyone to install it -- -- give me long term history or its performance. But looking at the the research data in it seems to be impressive. One thing that you'd have to. Ask and really keep in written form from the installer is if that product. Qualifies for the state and the federal tax incentives I knew there was some discussion that legislation. -- early on this last legislative session. Whether they would qualify for that and not I have not seen the final determination. I'm sure about him that made his decision but that would be something I was certainly look into it doesn't qualify for both the state and the federal incentives.
