I am a recent new homeowner from the Philadelphia area. I have joined to seek advice in all areas of home improvement. My first project is to tackle a roof leak on my semi-enclosed rear patio with a low sloped roof. It seems that this site has a good amount of information. I am the type of individual who tries to attack a problem on my own, and if I cannot do it due to lack of experience or expensive equipment, I'll hire a professional. Hopefully this site will broaden my knowledge of how things work with regards to property ownership. I have owned my house for 10 months, and have already learned SO much about how things operate. I hope to continue the trend. Anyways, just wanted to say hello.
