Apparently, technology has gotten to you via the double post!
You are correct though. All of these advances in technology have caused, mold, which you rarely see in an older home, failure of structures due to inferior,smaller materials, and a whole host of other items that plague new construction.
I equate a new home to the movie “10”. For those of you who are too young to remember it, Bo Derek was this unobtainable goddess. Through a series of events, lowly Dudley Moore finally gets her alone. She is beautiful to look at, but then…she opens her mouth…and the illusion is over!
Newer home can be built better and in consultations, I instruct my Clients to improve on a few areas to make the home better. Average cost is $5,000.00-$10,000.00, but you will have a much better, stronger, and maintenance free home.
