Found this forum and thought it would be great as I've just moved into a new house that has many items needing attention. Most have me asking "What were they thinking?!?"
When you say new house, do you mean just built or is it just new to you?
If its a brand new house and there are many issues, thats not surprising. Most homes built today seem to be poorly built as it seems to be more about "how many can we build as cheaply as possible" rather than focusing on quality. Thats not to say all builders are like that but some of the mass production builders operate in this fashion.
Im always surprised when a buyer of a brand new home, neglects to get a home inspection. Youd be surprised how many problems you will find in new construction. Just because its new, doesnt mean its built well
Can you give us some ideas of these items that need attention please?
