James,

I am considering a house in Salem Woods. What are you issues with the plumbing there? Is it an access issue or is it more the lack of quality? How often do you get service calls in that area? Thanks for the input.

Access issues thats all, I haven't done any service plumbing calls for about 10 years, so its been awhile. The company I worked for replaced the Poly B plumbing supply lines in some of the houses in Salem Woods. Except for access the supply lines which now should be copper, cpvc, or Pex in your new house will last quite a long time.

Nice job on your choice, Salem Woods is a nice neighborhood.

Carrcroft, Shellburne, Claymont Heights, neighborhoods along Foulk and Shipley rd and if you have been up here you know that there are quite of few neighborhoods, and they don't have these issues. Same goes for Newark, and Bear. I would rather risk my tools getting stolen in Sparrow Run/Brookmont Farms than work on some of the houses in Salem Woods. I'm not saying these houses are garbage or junk, just nightmare plumbing designs.

Really? You'd rather risk have your tools stolen than live elsewhere? What would you do if that happened, and think about how much it would set you back? Sparrow run does have a pretty bad reputation, is it as bad as I've heard? And, is it really worth risking your livelyhood?

A few years ago ambulances had to wait at the entrance of Sparrow Run for a police escort into the development, I'm not sure if thats still the case or not. I've had my tools stolen in east Wilmington twice and once in Newport, it messed me up for a week or so but the company had insurance so my tools were replaced.

As for prices of homes, yes this area is outrageous. Our close friends just left for New Jersey for that reason, and for schools. Personaly I didn't realize North Wilmington was way overpriced until a few months ago.

There are problems with pipes everywhere, the houses at 19803 are WELL built and have acharm about them, I moved here from a McMansion in Middletown, you can KEEP that area. North Wilmington is close to EVERYTHING, very beautiful and VERY low crime rate. People take pride in theirhomes and neighborhood. I absolutely love it here and and the good feeling of home throughout the area.
