Wonder why? not even talking about the pain here.
I know that why, h#!! I did that!
We bought this townhouse for our sons to live in while attending college. Nice place, passed 95% of the inspection and the seller coughed up $1000 at closing to cover the other things. Great, good deal.
Then we noticed some mildew on a baseboard day of closing. So I thought "old damage" because there had been a burst pipe that we had been told off. Well, I start the repair and I find, damp wallboard and mold and mildew. I think, don't panic, it's only a few feet and I can fix this cheap. So I clean it all out, bleach and clean keeping the stuff damp so it does not get airborne. Then I spend 16 hours or so and $250 making sure that the deck above that was leaking was sealed and the outside wall is sealed and....IT LEAKS WORSE INSIDE!.
Roofer that inspected it all today says he thinks it is coming from the neighbors to boot!
Keep in mind that the seller signed off on NO KNOWN moisture problems. The neighbor will swear in court if we want that the seller knew about this! But that takes court action to get anywhere...
So, now I got a sore back from doing to much work, a wet bedroom and pain in the @$$....
What possess' people to just ignore things and screw people over? I just don't get it. I won't leave any stone unturned to fix this, though I could just slap some sealer on it and "hope it works".
The icing, since it is the roof, is that the home inspector failed to note the dozen or so holes in the spray foamed and sealed flat roof, so those need repaired.
My only saving grace is my Lamictal, I do believe I would be going off the deep end if I did not actually have a med that seems to be working
NOTE: could we change the name of Water cooler to say, "Rum Fountain" or perhaps "pinacolodalake"?
