And if you turn ought to back off and turn it back once it gets heated back up again. And dumb spoke with the plumber ticket well he puts on it. And it is that it needed to be cleaned. And calm stumpel and just kind of been pipes. So atomic this a little like you to do is. Go to where the Texas wood eaters at it and have someone inside turn on hot water. And then I'll watch to listen to end the water heater nights you have inherited ignites pretty loud it's very obvious. Infancy how long is it stays point does it turn on and off this light as a close like to turn off. And then Miki peace and correctional what the challenges. They there are some devices and safety devices in their in the event in over heats. Or it's too high you'll turn off. So there's some it's called the temperature went to switch so you know there's. Those machines. Route will parcel cleaning and something and it's there's certainly that mean it's free. And then I want to do that at different. Of the lost season or or amounts of water meaning the first turn on your faucet at a loom. Opening this a small local water into it happens in a medium amount Warnaco fonts they come back there to do it in a wide open in buffalo NC. How that he reacts.

Common and basically. Are before a yes yes it's common yet it does audio output in our state. How evil wants out the the other. I'm a disappointment a let up all. Well. It's it's not that it's it's not lasting while axis sometimes that you decree there are some rain that's. Due out. Thanks for coming appreciate it let's go to our next caller. Let's see we'll Raj hey good morning welcome to the comprehensive. Much. We have a lot about our house and on record home and that day. Annan also built in 1932. A couple of breakdowns where that moment off the ground. We brought it back and that in that span. Our Internet any inflation in the fourth vote but patting. I can't insulate it out all the only sport that help with installation we trained pretty. Count went about it insulated windows. Which really helped a lot and all eyes that. An installation. But in the port call on autopilot sport throughout its cop out. But. We seem to consistently. Eight bold pitch. Greek flag on wall periodically as well it and like it collected yellow boat. For a time like I saw. On furniture. The Bill White. Old. Developing on the monitor. Com. We've got essentially a guarantee and like that they would not aero we've but he has company that air condition update five. When we come back into the wintertime. And my. Turn it down it is bit. And I don't know what those that do try to eliminate model and it turns. So let me describe to you what's happening in this is quite hump comet for folks that have. Hunting camp's fishing camps weekend Jones beach houses and lake house however you want to describe it. Is. When you leave that that home you know really concerned about controlling. Temperature which do you control moisture and setting your term set up to 85 degrees is probably not allowing your condition that one often enough. Through the moisture and saw the house. So you have one or two options and in and I'm almost. I'm on the face it and in such way that what you try 11 that that doesn't work good options to. So option one will be to set your thermostat on eighty degrees. And see if the problem goes away York it's reduced. If he doesn't go away then I want you to you invest in the you've been a far. And that the minute pars all the good turn on and off base or in the moisture inside the house not necessarily temperature. And the depending on how you're and he says 3000 feet but depending on. You know waited three does BR is it multiple stories that your house for a segment there was one people era. You may have to get multiple do you bit of followers and pro warring hole how's the human afar connected with your recognition system and dark work. So you need control more (%expletive) that that that's what's happening when you going on this is a summertime the only outcome winter. You can keep your arms that 72 degrees to prevent the pipes from freezing. And and that would be great. Because we don't have as much moisture in the winter. As we do in our spring summer fall so you do you need to control wash what you that their run and ended the humidifier. His the most effective way of doing that but you they would try to assert you know sitting at their staff from 8581. For a couple times and seat that does any better. Yeah. It's completely followed that up around the bottom and brick. And add a little ball up or control. In the brick periodically and what it felt like what we needed more air flow so we let it leak. I guess about a but by way. While the rate by two polls always around out periodic but he art or wrong. It and allow air. Is that a good thing at the air follow that I am here. We'll put a Mississippi is an end. It would. So with bill doesn't have as much communities we do here in new loans still has a lot to Stanislas we do here. You know further south so. When we talk about air flow. What we need dues we eating commercial buildings to draw. It's difficult to try and these are home with more wet outside there. So I get in this discussion quote off the folks that yet I need to head in relation to help drive quote again it's you can't drive went there with more wet air. Now you can help with some of operation but that's typically not. The entire every crawl space that's as key areas where you'll get some that are trying you'll get better trying everywhere effect in some cases it makes it worse. So. You will get some moisture from underneath keeping your home. But yeah and again you can also give bush has come through walls. Coming through. The ceiling where there air leaks are. So you'd you can push from everywhere so that that's why went straight to do you get a far from inside your house. But. Yeah it does. It three bedroom but the wrong I'm wrong picture and on Iran. In a closet so it. I think you're on air probably install it at all at that Providence. Probably best yet it's terrorist list in Toronto hope that helps out and enjoy your weekend home in in with the Mississippi. We do need to go to news break will be right back after this news break. Here in the home crucial we do have a couple lawns broken for the keeps calling 2601870. Who will be Africans calls right after disparate.

And I have got crystals in on the line. Taken there are differing altered hold Gartner. But it's not answering. 401 of those crystals and outgunned and now. When you see of crystals. When you talk about in the glass itself here crystal glass. I don't know. Our guys it looked like glass commute grill it clear crystals there and almost look like that development up. Just fine in on their evaporation that it tears soak up the humidity you're more you're out. Oh yeah okay and where those located. Our Barbara Barr Coca. So riddled with that is is it's exactly what you described as its silicon it to absorb them and the moisture. In fact this is a good time you can receive it is when we have a lot of cold dry inside and warm outside our glasses sweat and content satellite. So. Why do you wanna take does that. Then look ugly you wouldn't feel when we first got the door to door ten years Ole. In week and they get started showing up at the bottom there at the bottom of the collapse. Or ice I suspect that it. And they're probably getting bigger and saws because absorb moisture is my guest at the guests brokered. It now user trim you can take off to gain access to home or you have to take out the glass insert the key to an atom. I'm asking because I've I don't know where their underwear and aren't in reference to lower section the orbit I don't know how do we gain access to without taking something. Why aren't took their term all now hold glass. In front door yes. You're partnered. Black rubber. Material that hole all week because of bubble collapsed. Unit in your sandwich it between two pieces that I'm absolutely tempered glass. Yes. A great. Is cut a little hole enact and for those coastal route only eventually disappear or tree back down. Now you have this if they're not all glued together. Archer they'll suck on it not put yes you can certainly tried that. Yet aren't they all be here together and replicas of gotten when it. All right. And they here's Bernard or before it's a figure out what that swell up is that how that works. Guess our insurance now there there's also two that there's another purpose for those twos that. There's your opening closing the door and back last operates and acts like a shock absorber. So you have to put something in the in its place. To that maybe it's a small little piece of all applaud. Robber roping. It's. What you can do you go to the whole restore. In and get what's called Barack arrived and it's shaped like a pencil and it comes along roles that's not you can put in his place there have been because you don't. Particularly the bit not that two things are Alaska's a tempered with the you know collapse the double class. He could be sensitive to you know slamming shutting that Dorsey would be careful that. Rupert honour not so called barker are absolutely yes. Yes there poker. Are regular all right ordered her out her daughter would be. What you are out yet so openly come easy for all of lectured now. That's scrape by companies echo our speculative. Oh thank you for Carl and home improvement so we do have a couple lines that are open you know show ends at 2 o'clock so if you look at your phone call in. They'll read the time to do that and that phone number is probable for 26260187. It's 2601 late seventy. We can sense attacks at 8770. On this get back to our phone calls intensely good morning how are you today. Good morning I'm greatly blessed today yeah eskimos. But my question is. Have. Slate in my house and the borders whether. In areas where there's war. And it. A four man told me that slate natural flooding warden good because it. Absorbs the the binge that you put on the sleeper. And so we found that to be true and how I want it is to be open but. That what a good idea so what I wore what I'm thinking about so and so slate is hurt or so wondering if I could use a good quality. Varnish and just portables born and show me. You know I've never forest. Slate floors before. Now I can tell you that I've seen lots of slate used an outdoor purposes. And they have that finish and has ashamed to it's never. High Sheen it's more like a a medium machine. And they do rather well when it rains it doesn't absorb the water ports and rolls off the top of it. My my concern about using. Of Vonage would be its could turn yellow in color. So we did that that being. In his second half run away may take a year to four to happen that maybe then you can step towards a turn gelatin to get the strip it. And redo it in that being more headaches. I think out will be more prone to. Putting in multiple coats of the finish. For waterproofing. That would you eat machine you're looking for it still could have sold loans in the stone to the slate but give you that war protection you need as well. It just it just doesn't last very at all it's mainly about appearance. Yeah you know the really the reason singled with but the signal and we put owned. You know kind of our goals what looks singular political list about we can. Then it but four man told media companies that pressure of this and do told me when I've built that adults. Yeah that that he didn't put Slaton ran because it would absorb this finger and the Tutsis who don't know him. Yet it certainly is is a problem isn't only to go to Erica I'm I'm sorry to cut you short I appreciate you calling the show though. Spokeswoman right back to the home from show to disparate.

I the way you need hip pollen support trite because of where where those turn. So. And you're elevating because of the flood zone and risk of floodwaters. We're so yeah but the car. That can Crocker park. So in a lot of forensic investigations I do. You actually have fewer problems with the concrete slab on grade home which in this case beast on the Greek is your reason grade up. Verses in the he raced home. There are some advances that haven't raced them some advantages of the fact that. Weakening faring in this full disclosure you can get to climbing UGU you can. You do annual termite inspections if you need to be re level he'd insured up so there advantages of having that but well when we talk about from the standpoint of problems. I have fewer problems with slap houses that do with race houses are. Also read it more efficient every home that. True war. When you see if it's like any useless but there yet energy and home briefs that are some kinda. Now. I don't puddles on that to be about to be true Margaret you know date there are again. Went to Tom's profit atomic typically most of raise houses folks more cold in the winter and go with the concrete slab but in order concrete slab underneath.
