Then you can answer the architecture of sand creek along with that paint of course you what you uniform as much as possible. And you may put a -- could depend on top of the make sure that that paint it encapsulates and tar sand grain. Forward for slipping over decent slip and when it gets wet however traditionally stood at penetrating staying within that debt. Last a lot longer than pink does so it should give up some of that. -- Shall we. Are well you can go -- however we had anything to sustain. And keep them from slipping that's the dissidents at the star. So. Would it be watching and maybe get coated strain and and put -- -- would like to play. No at that point I think -- go ahead and I would probably it. And then -- would make some some seeing him with with with the the paint. Or you could depend on why it's what you can sprinkle was on top of it. And come back with another lower layer of paint. So do you sort of one way to get the you know the stain you can paint is no mixing in between. Well on this hawkish candidate okay. Just get along benched this channel at least wherever -- and -- -- and out. You know what what's it gets a capsule in the paint you really should be fairly fairly tight we're -- to come loose. Except when you if you get heavy heavy traffic what you got lots of pats or had a dog and they you know -- running. In -- terror with their cause and they break it up so depend on the use. Thank you yeah. Yes -- -- all right rob a here's. Text that read -- I have a tank less water heater or hot water heater on the blink yet. Could you please ask could you please ask Paul if he can recommend a plumber in Metairie who we specialize in tech with cedars appreciated. But that's a challenge for tech this water heaters is that they're you know there's plumbers that can install them but can't service them. But there are some -- that you both. Or if here's something you can consider the Texas what are users first have to like a gas furnace the technologies saying. You may wanna talk to me license heating cooling contractor or license a -- contract and plumber. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And yet. I'm sort -- and a project I got to look out -- Sears told about it around the square feet to -- -- By electrical bill which ruled -- do in winter months to wait until it is an animal house on its side in order house. Underneath the cited regulatory. Reporter rich formed board. You think that I didn't let them replace an album went. So you can -- -- -- situation while also been an eloquent connected it. And that would be. Out late in any way true. It's too late -- floor underneath. It that would Floyd Little porky -- who now. -- -- So so -- this certainly gonna help it you know where heat is coming in opium loss in the case of the winters can be. The floor the walls and the ceiling should you definitely hitting the walls in the windows and index will be to floors. Events certainly you can address the ceilings as well. So the foam insulation -- you're heading behind deciding. To make sure you take all the seems the top the bottom the edges -- budding up to other pieces of foam board. Any penetration like electrical plumbing or something drier than anything to complete a walls also going to be here's human airtight. Also when you putting new windows on you need to connect the window to. Full board that with proper realistic flashing. My suggestion used to go to a web site. Like a viewpoint type that web site. Oh or eight James -- board citing website in their best building guides on how to install these products. And the flash things around windows indoors and it's Adobe and excellent resource -- -- look at and -- who works and doesn't -- and how to properly do it. Elf underneath. What you don't you walls in deciding you recoup underneath. That same foam board or similar -- -- of you would use a poly I support that's a full face board. You can secure it to the bottom of your floor joists. And you take that same approach everything's gonna be airtight everything's going to be taped and -- and in continues to the bottom of the flow towards creating a dead airspace. Between the foam board and the bottom you floors where if you want you can use a clothes so -- phone either one of those products work well for me to. And -- -- on time and open a few. All right.
