How long have you built the building will be able to stand? American Corporation Bank of America Home Equity and the National Association of Home Builders U.S. presented their joint report, which assesses how long will last for one or another part of the house.<br /><br /><strong>1.

According to the Americans, a plate, because that it has no motor and a large number of moving parts, - one of the most durable household appliances in the house.<br /><br /><strong>2. Refrigerator</strong>. Average life - 13 years. Refrigerator compressor has to operate continuously. And given the device for making ice, which can often be seen in many American homes, the analysts who conducted the study, wonder, such as refrigerators, in principle, operate more than 10 years.<br /><br /><strong>3. Dishwasher</strong>. Average life - 9 years. Here, experts say, it all depends on how many people in the family. This is determined life. If you live in the house a large family, then the dishwasher is used several times per day, which reduces the "life" of the device.<br /><br /><strong>4. Study</strong>. Average life - 50 years. Made of fine wood cabinet will last a very long time home owners. Here the main question is, do not get tired of the owners of the house from the monotonous design, because for 50 years of wallpaper in the office can order podnadoest ...<br /><br /><strong>5. Concrete and masonry</strong>. Average life - 100 years. The concrete foundation and brick walls, including the finish, such as fire, should serve a long time. Very long.<br /><br /><strong>6. Kitchen table</strong>. Average life - 20 years to infinity.

Marble less durable, but Granite can easily survive their owners.<br /><br /><strong>7. A wooden porch</strong>. Average life - up to 20 years. Depending on weather conditions and whether there is over the porch roof. If it is not, by reason alone, rainfall such steps are likely to have changed in 10 years.<br /><br /><strong>8. Wiring</strong>. Average life - 10 years. Americans believe that the wiring needs to be changed once in 10 years. Everyone in Russia, as usual, depends on what for her folk craftsman spent.<br /><br /><strong>9. Plumbing equipment</strong>. Average life - 15 to 50 years. Kitchen sink, according to U.S. experts, can serve all of half a century, but the average lifespan of the tap does not exceed 15 years. Shower spray, as the researchers say in the States, can work for many decades, but the bath is likely to have changed in 30 years.<br /><br /><strong>10. Paul</strong>. Average life - 25 to 100 years. Hard wood, as stone, will last a century or more. But the term "life" of linoleum - about 25 years. Or, more likely, to the nearest cosmetic repairs.<br /><br /><strong>11. Roof, the roof covering</strong>. Average life - 20 to 50 years. It all depends on weather conditions, primarily on the humidity level. Wooden roofs are not renovated about 30 years, glinobeton or copper - up to 50 years, fiber cement coating - 25 years.<br /><br /><strong>12. Siding and accessories.</strong> Average life - 20 to 50 years. Brick, stone or fiber cement finishing can be almost an eternity. Wooden paneling will last at least 20 years, copper waste pipes - 50. And aluminum - just a couple of decades.<br /><br /><strong>13. Window</strong>. Average life - 15 to 30 years. Aluminum windows last for a relatively short time - about 15 years, but the wide wood - to the maximum, 30 years old.<br /><br />Of course, someone might say that for us all these calculations are not suitable, and in our environment, our builders and maintenance crews need to be a completely different ranking.<br /><br />This is partly true. On the other hand, many of our countrymen are already thinking about buying a house in the U.S., because today there is provided a wonderful opportunity to buy a house, say, $ 10 thousand All this is possible thanks to the mortgage crisis which broke out in the States recently.<br /><br />Grassroots Crisis forcing lenders to sell assets or put up for foreclosure sale. As a result of the auctions of the country began to exhibit at home for ridiculous prices. For example, at a recent auction in Detroit, at least 16 homes have gone for $ 30 thousand and even cheaper - a four-room house was sold for $ 7 thousand!<br /><br />A bungalow built in the western part of town, was sold for $ 1300. Agree, there is something to buy four-room house for the price of two Moscow square meters? Especially knowing how much he will serve.<br /><a href=""></a><br />
