Zeller oh good looks like you're much of a look forward it's similar in just because that you believe it or not says won't zealots are recent happy Thanksgiving to you. But if you are here Amber's show I have. I got a job outlook and battery is that out of polished and it's done that in market credible tree used by our count the social violence must now. The potential for extra vote of forty years in the first console or did that. But out. I looked at. A woman her pleasure at this point on politically it is now. And say they are credible read I'll paint. It's the sale. Acrylic. Edit itself shelf load so if I felt level. It period may benefit the protection level troubled spot to see where all of in this debate. It that you could recommend taller than Bob Bennett event. Eat proxy to party proxy. Where you're. Out there don't they would have it yes sir. Yes or no normal wanting to keep a mom whether it's it's the product you have for the proxy or any of the parties view on select. Is you need to prepare that for Micah. Two receive and in its year bond to that I think it was a real smooth Formica you probably half the rough about the little boots and sandpaper. It. What's that Syria. I got a bit got back. Again tomorrow I'll. Yeah you know and it deeper it. It then I think would I would do was all also take some tackle paper. In which is really nothing but sticky paper it broom group you know obviously you wouldn't quite detailed you would've vacuumed and that would take that tact paper tablet. Run the attack paper along with all services of accounts up to get all that farm grew out of it but what you put your first coat of the paint. Oh we are wary that the paper ball at nine stores or big box were cells that took the paintings to so. Okay yeah go. Authorities themselves and have a great holiday units currently. Hey one more thing don't think about Norman it happy holidays to it to use well at the things given. I think while I was doing this public turn the air conditioned office. In L fans off and and not necessary. Because I don't want armed drug really Q1 a a cold dry environment. Ottawa in the things disturb the dust in the dust stick and then went talks with a weapon white stripe. So a well know is it's not the master I've made mistakes of the past and learn from so. Obviously you'd benefit from my my mistakes at all. I. Soon thank you have great enormous precede colon all right let's go to the next Owens beat were on a Friday good morning happy Thanksgiving. That's. You running are one and live the hey Lenny how he thanks god. Yeah value. And wonderful you look at our car before mistake. On. I got out. Brick chimney. And with the media laps citing how. Certainly in the clocking in to be called on a technical walking out in blog. Claude. Gaps. As much as one. Spot. Got some backing. By date and concern and very. All the walls of artwork but I bought them right in. The credit and the thing they have Infante. A couple of them that tightening. Insulation. What it caught. Opted you know like one. So Lenny it's it's it's virtually the same material that the pipe insulation in the baccarat and almost the same type product. It that but the whole purpose of this is to fill in the gaps are united. Putting gobs and gobs and gobs and in many many teams of of a sealant in that spot and also a lawless use so that when you put large amounts of the sealant caulking and it has received sagging. So does the backer rod. Allows you to be able to bridge that gap for the car for the large cap and also help supported and does have a lot of weight so it doesn't sag. So. If if you could use the cut pipe insulation. I would I would put the the circle apart facing out what you. As opposed to inverted inside. And you what I view of the snugly fit you know crammed in there he is that a nice outfit. And if it was me I wouldn't use it to local. Caulking outward upgraded use a fixture agreed urethane simulate the trader for outside something that. Has the ability to expand or contract a lot. It in it not that they're there are other things out there with the one that comes the money be leads in. In. Home he put there are the product of a brand names out there they have the same properties in benefits as MP one. And so I'm not saying going to get them to saying that's the hype your things sealant I'll use it evolves look for something in that application. Is that is that something that requires. Like pink and and so you know. You know Greg call it like mineral is. Look at. You know this isn't us. Yes. Okay of us. Aren't yet I don't think I also bought the sprayed foam made before windows. Spansion are using. The back writers that. The backdrop will be better. That the back probably better at the faith to think about the foam in the candle more components so you get to come back if you're putting you at the American trim it anyway before what you put the seal on it. So the back around as that you can on larger back deride. Online you can order it's fairly inexpensive amateur if you wanna wait or if you can wait a cushion a much of tricky is done. Well it's shucks I'm not sure when if you have enough complicate system before it rains the seats now. I'm not it's gonna put the mom you know some plastic up there. To keep the water out right. In the and then take my time whether I think that MP wanna. BA yet they have products that come. I don't remember who makes it I don't know it's it's. It's an awards caulk to.

The board all bomb on what portion of the baseball capitol property that was floated away this year. And finally get around the world led invasion or an I was told that I have to replace the fireplace. The wood burning fireplace. On on the security order in about that why would have between them. Mike is in the basement fireplace or pre fabricated metal box that regard fabricated. If record. Yeah so winner did you flood it was a fresh water so war. Report. Hookah.

Via boat and are okay there's no there's no gas. No oh record store or not. All right on the most. Circumstances I give people advice replacing pre fabricated far place box that's been submerged in water in the manufacture easily the same thing Mike. They need to replace that. Now. A lot of times it's because of having gas having gas valves in in other circumstances contaminated water. And saw water. Mike I need ritual hoax I got more to talk about I've got a good to CBS news break her back up that is.

We're boring box with no gas nighter just the box where you start the which far place. And go ahead and get warm there are. My Mike how much water was actually in the far placed box itself. At the house what are rated near port. That the correct answer is. The manufacturers could suggest that you remove and replace the far place box their their it is no doubt that. And the in fact that this of postings after the march and the August flooding. Or our website at Paul's house dot com Google blog postings and read this and actually post some information that was. I our research and reference from different manufacturers of far place boxes. Put your case it was fresh water it wasn't so war. Like he was contaminated waters so you know that that's a concern among that's the that's probably the only concern I have. Is that. It was contaminate water hit silt in the water so some of the silt could easily since the foot deeper so. Approximately deep in the box conceivably could got into the chambers. Of that far place box for air to boot. And it it it certainly could be contaminated it's a great chance it is contaminated. By. Mean and it's. If it was it was my home I'll take part look at it he can clean it proceedings sanitize it before I would remove all that. Rick could you sense of mystery far pleas for or boo wallet replaces. About trying to that first I would even Har someone who does far place inspections. Influence the actions have come look at it. In. What would that not all of them and they people won't like they did replace an outcome under the offer that is it what would this hurt. Anyhow but not vehicle wanna be here but what I understand.

You know that the minerals or what challenges well. You know dealing with insurance company to sometimes some insurance companies would. You know people letter recommendation replace they would they would give you the funds to do that and in some good a balk at the right you know in this case doesn't really matter if you have insurance.

A lot more the public provincial left to go here in the negates that it would be right back at this. Hey welcome back to us so let's go straight to phone lines and speak with Kathy Kathy good morning and happy thanks Kevin. Good morning to epic Thanksgiving. Can you tell from room questions. Okay we live and Ian and we need it are really replace. And my husband worked leaning toward the mantel room. And what we heard about adult group is set go program for basic. Pretty guaranteed for life but it's the street at about after a few years. So I was calling on that your comments pro and con between metal group and a regular. OK so. Let me say this not every metal roof is guaranteed for life. It depends on what. Product using. And also the thickness the gate and how would application. It's installed. Home if they or some groups out there that would. That or medal there where there's this crew since our org are not an issue like east standings seem tight. Metal roof. So put their their lots and lots of other bad routes where. The screws or due to Kabul Province is more than a few years you know typically you can. You can easily get 77. Years out of the seventh in nine years depending on. The expansion and contraction. And if you know at that point you would go back in you would tighten the screws a little bit in the next wave you know 78 years and years later. You would remove and replace screws and the Gromit. You'll there's little. Gromit for what's right and you would try to get a little bit longer or large diameter screw it does require some maintenance. So that compared to use a traditional. Architectural. Asphalt type shingle. You always good to get. Most times you could get longer life of a battle product of good quality. It properly installed that route to new rule out of a cast function room you also pay more money for so you can chipping work. The you know but at the same time they're being in the last ten to fifteen years or write great improvements. And ask votes in the roof there's a better when rating does better you know rating peers that are UV exposure. Because those are typically the things that here in the south that are supposed to roots you know those are its enemies you know it and high winds. With poor installation. Hail UV exposure put Meehan like this in the last 1012 years Kathy. The industries they pick improvements in the guest house in product. I have an asphalt roof on my house when it's time for to go on replace it with an asphalt children. And up and go with the class each shingle. Which is a hurricane reachable for Marco on a 103 among our 32 gusts when properly installed. Would go with a synthetic and delivered atlas of the comes a different and no one in the roof. Could go with another product that's or another additive another feature. His call whole roof technology. Would it reflect some breaking heat back into the atmosphere so therefore I don't get as much free heat from reaching goal in two. Among house you'd have that option to form a roof as well. So it. Cool roof technology to its at a coating that is that's on the roof and product the radiates heat. You know it really depends aesthetically which are looking for about Ruth looks different than nation. I write so what. Wouldn't say good quality adult group when I look at format. You know what like anything. Installation is is key. Proper installations case that you would find someone who has does nothing but memories and and it typically is very difficult for recent company do both listing of two different divisions at different division. That does nothing but asphalt shingle and separate division does nothing but veterans. Some follow someone who specialized metal roots. The lower the number the better the cage to pick of the product. If I was sort of a republic over the east innings seen. I've technology. I would go with Hewlett stick on delivered underneath the veterans does cases of failure. How would having a delight that's for robots that can be like a secondary barrier. To prepare water infiltration from coming into in two months. It's so that that that those with features I would be looking for. If if you're looking for someone to come to to Picayune. To install of the roof from. I haven't won in Europe airy to recommend I have some of the North Shore. In an abuse brings a river area recommend a mature of the group woman compete you know they might. Paul's house that common search for a search for the North Shore region in the roofing and look wore metal roots. And you call maybe in his body close here at the can recommend that on the well.
