  1. AMY -Well, i got togather all the questions that i have so that i won’t be taking up to much of your time.ask Danny or Allen, what they think about the tankless waterheaters, i know that they are quite expensive but i am willing to go that route if ya’ll think they are a good investment,Also I need to know how to find a leak that has origin in my back patio cover, i have climbed up there and spread that black tar here and there, but i still have not hit the spot, also do ya’ll approve of commercial grade indoor/outdoor carpet for a garage floor? I have weinscoating paneling on the garage walls that is bowed out in places,the paneling is nailed to the original sheetrock-how can i fix that problem or would i be better off just pulling it all out and replacing it with stronger material? This would take up to much of your radio time, so if you could just answer back by e-mail I would appreciate that. thanks
