My partner and I bought an older property a couple of years ago and there have been a number of problems since we bought the place, one of the first problems was with the roof.
When we had the property inspection completed, we were told that the roof was in fantastic shape, and there were a few repairs here and there, however we did not expect to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a brand new roof because the entire thing needed to be replaced.
Even the underlayment was filled with mold! Another concern that recently occurred happened after a large storm. Our drainage field for the septic system was completely flooded. The paper and septic matter was not absorbing into the ground. As the water table rises, the septic system becomes a problem. There was inadequate luck and we had to contact a local plumbing corporation! We needed a plumbing business that was going to be available in an emergency. It was important to find a corporation that could come help us instantly instead of waiting until Monday. There were plenty of plumbing corporations out there, however we chose a skilled and knowledgeable dealer with great reviews online. The plumbing corporation gave free estimates and after hours calls. They had the septic fixed in no time at all. The corporation gave us a few ideas to keep the problem from happening again in the future and they made sure that our drainage system was improved and ready for the next storm.
