When I bought this house, I knew that I would be in for some extreme upgrades over the years as time plus money permitted.
The first thing that had to be done was the roof, as the homeowner’s insurance supplier refused to supply me coverage otherwise.
I negotiated a lower price on purchasing this unit because of that factor. The seller of the apartment was being unsatisfactory at first because she entirely felt enjoy the whole property was worth a lot more money than it entirely was. My real estate agent wasn’t too eager about getting the price lower because then they make less money as a commission. At the end of the day, I had to be persistent although I got the price reductions that I was looking for. After replacing the roof, I installed a modern air conditioner, water heater, plus gas range in the kitchen. However, 1 immense disfortune I noticed fairly early on was the driveway. I have a heavy truck plus the concrete is cracking everywhere from the weight of the truck. I don’t think the original driveway was built with steel rebar reinforcement, otherwise it wouldn’t buckle to such a degree. I realized that I should do it myself this time, so I’m currently looking for a enjoyable deal on infancy steel rebar to sit with rebar tie wires before pouring the modern concrete from the stone truck. I don’t need corrosion resistant rebar, so I think that black bar rebar would be sufficient instead of the fancy galvanized rebar tie wire. That way my concrete will always be strong enough to withstand the weight of my new truck or any future trucks.
