Here’s another choice for you, and, of course, we need an immediate response. Hi ho!
The question is about windows/doors. First let me define terms and set the table.
A window/door has an INTERIOR side. That’s the side you would see, for example, when sitting in your living room.
A window/door has an EXTERIOR side. That’s the side you would see, for example, when standing in the courtyard.
A window/door can be SEEN FROM THE STREET or NOT SEEN FROM THE STREET. The downstairs courtyard doors/windows + utility door cannot be seen from the street. All other doors/windows can be seen from the street.
The standard of the remediation project has been “match existing.” Using that standard, we planned that all exterior window/door surfaces would be painted blue. The metal windows will not be newly painted.
The interior window/door surfaces can be painted/stained however a homeowner chooses. Our question is only about the exterior of the doors/windows.
Because the exterior of the downstairs courtyard windows/doors + utility cannot be seen from the street, we have decided to offer most homeowners the opportunity to keep these downstairs courtyard doors/windows + utility the natural white color that comes from the factory.
QUESTION: DO YOU WANT YOUR DOWNSTAIRS COURTYARD WINDOWS/DOORS + UTILITY TO BE LEFT “FACTORY-DELIVERED WHITE” OR DO YOU WANT THESE WINDOWS/DOORS PAINTED BLUE?
If you choose factory-delivered white for the downstairs courtyard windows/doors + utility door:
1. You will NOT have to paint these window/doors in the future. Painting them is a homeowner responsibility.
2. The Project will receive a $520 credit per unit.
3. Your downstairs courtyard doors/windows will NOT match upstairs courtyard windows, i.e., the Juliette window/door and the upstairs courtyard square window and the elevated living room windows will still be painted blue because they can be seen from the street.
Please note, the blue color may not be the exact blue you now have. Paint colors fade; our effort to match may not have been perfect. You may see the blue that will be used for the windows/doors at #912 (Gonzalez) from 7AM-5PM. You may see the white factory door-window at #902 (Humphreys) from 7AM-8PM. The front gates will be open. Please do not ring the door bell.
Special information for those living in the 900’s and 910s. The contractor already has been painting some of the doors/windows here and off-sight. If yours has been painted or primed, then you will not have the option to choose “factory-delivered white.” Since there are some uncertainties, please respond with your preference. We will straighten things out ASAP. Your response is important.
The Project needs to continue the window/door painting. We do not want to be blamed for delaying the project. Please reply to me (not the entire group) BY 5 PM on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10.
E-mail “BLUE” or “WHITE” and PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR UNIT NUMBER. I need 63 responses. Those who do not answer by Wednesday at 5 PM will get blue windows/doors.
