I appreciate my aged house, however it is absolutely starting to show its age.
Some parts of the foundation have settled into the ground quicker than in other venues, causing walls to develop distinctive cracks that I fill, sand smooth, and paint whenever I find them.
Just patching aesthetic changes doesn’t address the greater troubles at hand, the honestly things that are structural and have reverberating effects on other parts of 1’s house and 1’s life. My uneven foundation is nothing compared to my Grandparents’ aged house that was swallowed by a sinkhole in the years after they sold it to an investment supplier. In that situation the numerous of them kept getting increasingly worried about the house as troubles were arising all over the venue. Interestingly enough, at no point did either of them stop and wonder if their house was built over a sinkhole. They both claim to have never heard of sink holes before they saw the story being reported on the evening news multiple years after their sale. Thankfully no 1 was inhabiting the house at the time. Right now I’m in a situation where I’ve been using fans for years to improve the air flow from room to room, however it feels care about a bandaid for a larger problem. I asked my heating and cooling worker about my airflow issues and she decided to inspect the ductwork himself. She told myself and others that my house was already aged when the first a/c and ventilation plan were installed in the house decades ago. The ductwork was assembled in a tiny amount of free space, giving no flexibility to where 1 column could be venued. There are sharp turns that push a lot of the air back into the front of the house. By putting damper valves inside the ductwork, the worker can redirect the air to the venues it’s intended to go.
