Buuuuuut... this year might be a bit different. Last week, our rental house's plumbing burst and flooded underneath the home. 90 year old pipes + 5 days of continuous rain in dry Los Angeles = warped original hardwood floors and house sitting on top of moldy food, sewage and general disgusting muck... not what I wanted to hear in December. Our home warranty insurance did not cover this damage but I've filed a claim with our homeowner's insurance (I didn't even realize there was a difference.) We had a remediation crew pump out all the gross gunk and properly dry out the crawl space. Then the plumbers replaced the rotting old galvanized cast iron pipes with shiny new pipes. New drainage around the house was installed and now this will never happen again... but if it does, it's under a 50 year warranty! Even with all this damage, there's a silver lining: our foundation is still solid! This is what I'm actually getting for xmas... about a hundred times more expensive and very ugly:
Santa, all I want this year is peace of mind. I'm so relieved Andy is coming back soon and we'll be a cuddly mess of kitties and us again.
