Leaks are the bane of a homeowner’s existence. There are so many different ways that a house can experience a leak. From the faucet that won’t stop dripping, to the hot water heater that bursts in the middle of the night. Leaks are bad news. They cost time, money, and can even cause damage to your home. When I bought my first home, I had to learn how to handle different kinds of leaks. Luckily, I had a great emergency plumber that I was able to call when one of my pipes burst unexpectedly. I learned how to fix minor leaks, like the dripping bathroom faucet, myself. I started this blog to help other new homeowners learn how to handle a leaky house.
