I have been very lucky in my lifetime when it has come to not having any major housing trouble. I believe that is because I try my very best to upkeep my house. I spent a lot of money in buying my home so I want to make sure that it will last for the time that I am living there. It surprises me that so many people will neglect their home and just let things go. I just think so many people are lazy these days. Just go out and spend a Saturday a month and maintain things around the house as needed.
The only major problem that I ever have had with my house has been my roof once. We had a really bad storm in the middle of the night and it woke me up. I was thirsty so I got up and went to the kitchen to get some water. One wall in the kitchen looked like a water fountain. I was up the rest of the night with towels. That morning I was on the phone looking for some roofers in my area. I was looking on yelp and of course Google. I was lucky and found a roofing company near by that great reviews. They did a great job on fixing my roof.
