In an effort to prevent Fascia Boards around our buildings from rotting, we are removing all nails and screws, caulking and painting with a thick oil based paint. Our Rules and Regulations specifically state that this type of damage to the fascia boards is strictly prohibited. There are clips that can be used for Holiday decorations that do not damage the boards. In the future we would appreciate the use of none damaging clips.
In an effort to increase safety, and to reduce our insurance costs, we are adding to our preventative maintenance programs a battery replacement program for Fire Alarms in all units. Expect to receive further information by email. Our other preventative maintenance programs include annual inspections and maintenance of the roofs, as well as maintaining working fire extinguishers in all laundry rooms.
