Re: What to expect on a 50 year old house

There are reports on home building issues and renos in here for different years in Canada. BTW a 50 year old house is practically brand new in my neighbourhood where my home predates Canada as a country. »www03.cmhc-schl.gc.ca/catalog/ho···21128375

I'll take my 1959 built home over a relatives 1998 built home....the quality of workmanship is far superior as are the materials. With good bones a house can last several lifetimes.....

Same here, we looked at a few new homes and then decided on a 1969 built home. The new one looked fancy.. but looking behind the scenes (in the mechanical room) you could see how cheap it was built.
