THE RESTORE 818 “DESIGNER REBUILT” DIFFERENCE
Buying a cosmetic renovation is rolling the dice on a ticking time-bomb. Think that’s hyperbole? What else but a “time-bomb” of unexpected costs would you call a 50-year old house that’s been made to “look pretty” on the surface but still has 50-year old guts?
The top five hidden costs you must be aware of when buying a South Florida home built in the 60’s: 1. cast iron sewers, 2. original electrical wiring, 3. old AC ducts, 4. original insulation and 5. old or non-existent hurricane roof strapping.
These five hidden but critical systems are not only potential issues for the health and safety of your family; replacing them all will cost well over $100,000. Cast iron sewer lines (which have a 50-60 yr. life, do the math) will run $30k to $50k alone! Plus, many insurance companies are also charging you more every year because of the risks these old systems pose, so those are more hidden costs you’re probably not aware of.
With a Restore 818 Designer Rebuilt Home you can rest assured that all these systems are 100% new, fully permitted and up to or surpassing current building codes. That’s the Restore 818 difference.
