Like I said I've been researching this situation for over 3 mos.and all u can give me is what has been done long ago. For so-called "experts" go back to the drawing board and learn something. My rating for your so called expertise is minus 0. You had better not charge me for getting less than nothing
Technician: Eddie, Home Improvement Contractor replied 3 months ago

if you don't rate me you don't get charged..........I don't get credited ........in case you do contact customer service
