My Dad Does Not Know Everything About What’s Needed

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:30 am

When I found a house that I knew that I wanted to purchase, I invited my father to come over and take a look at it because I wanted him to give his opinion on it. The first thing that he noticed when we drove up is that the home has a flat roof. He told me then that I should not buy it because flat roofs often mean problems with water leakage. I started to do some research that night, and I learned that a flat roof demarcation can stop that problem immediately if you have someone who knows what they are doing to install it. I made sure to check a variety of sites that all pointed out this same info.

When I left that day, dad told me I would be making a mistake to get that house. He had seen too many problems with homes of the same kind over the years. But I knew that I had enough info to back up the fix that I needed. After purchasing the home, I would just need to make sure that I used a really good company to do the work for me. The cost was not very much at all, and what little cost I would need to pay would be money saved down the road. In fact, I was surprised that the current homeowners didn’t already have a barrier system installment done long ago.

There was no water damage in the home per the inspector. So, I felt safe in purchasing it. The place is only 2 years old, so there hasn’t been a lot of time for rain issues anyway. However, just four weeks after I moved in, it rained for 3 weeks straight. Prior to that, we had been in a drought situation for 2 years. I found it amusing that this happened rather quickly after I moved in. I found it even more amusing that my ceilings began leaking in two rooms. However, the rain soon dried up, and I called in a company to do the install for me as planned. That was 3 years ago, and there hasn’t been even one leak since.
