Why Paying Down Debt Faster is Not Always Better

Common Plumbing Challenges in Old Buildings

 

Behind the walls, the infrastructure (e.g., plumbing and electrical) gets difficult to maintain and must eventually be replaced. If you’re planning to buy or live in an older building, you need to be prepared for some or all of the following plumbing challenges.

  • Aging, Corroded Pipes
  • Sewer Problems
  • Piecemeal or Inadequate Repairs
