Harold, Dorothy and Bob met from 11am to noon.
Miscommunication problem with roof drain testing in 920s: testing protocol was followed, leaks detected 2nd floor & 1st floor within 1 min, water in downspout immediately released, Bob went in with the roofer and the foreman, the small spill was cleaned up within 5-10 mins. One was on a “dishtowel” clean-up, the other maybe a Dixie cup worth of water.
They demo’d the stucco from trellis up to roofline. Bob apologizes for not sending him personally an email.
Bob also explained about the use of fans for attic ventilation.
Paul sent an explanation to the wcp list. However, he did not fully explain the nature of the miscommunication. Bob would have liked to have been contacted directly before the community was alerted, and admits that it would have been good to send Paul a personal email.
Bob/Jacklyn will share the roof drain testing protocol with the community so that everyone understands what happens during that procedure.
When stucco is removed it is in general not covered up again unless rain is expected. Residents might see a bit of daylight, but in general the drywall interior blocks direct exposure to the outside.
Skylights: they will be installed at a later stage after all roof work is completed.
Tufflex: the contractor has become very cautious because of the moisture and concrete primer and drying time concerns. Thus he removed some before applying the flashing. However, the protocol has been refined and the contractor is now continuing that work. If the weather holds “Cluster A” should be done in a couple of weeks.
Landscaping. Brian Peck is now the contact person at plowboy. He is working with Gail to have the vegetation removal
Exterior lights: The project has been waiting to see whether any residents have complaints about the proposed model. It is polycarbonate instead of cast aluminum, giving it a better white color, and the architect thinks it has better water resistant properties.
There was NO response to the announcement that the Project will be replacing ALL lights.
Question: what about owners who have ALREADY replaced their exterior lights, and want those newer lights reinstalled? A: notify Gail asap.
If anyone want to keep their existing exterior lights, you MUST send an email to Gail.
Owner-installed windows: all project-installed windows have a thin head/drip flashing (similar to the little strips above our existing doors/windows, but with a much smaller profile).
This is a custom profile. It is made of Kinear (?) or stainless with pre-baked finish (this is on order).
Monte Wayne is doing the custom fabrication; he is the subcontractor for the project and for Matt van Dyck. The Association/ARB should try to have these installed on all new windows henceforth. There won’t be uniformity since windows not being replaced will not have these.
Project Schedule. The contractor(s) don’t want to give information beyond progress in Cluster B (900s) yet, which is roughly on track. Thus we can’t yet say anything about whether the 920s are on track or not. However, Bob thinks we are still generally within “ballpark” range of the published schedule.
Next meeting: Tuesday April 2, 11am.
