Hurricane Irma Update December 4, 2017

For those of you in Buildings 15 and 16 that have not yet met up with Andrew from United Water Restoration this week to address your leak damage, you must contact him and set up an appointment for this week.  Beginning Monday December 11th,  we will be moving on to Buildings 29 and 30.

If you are an owner or resident in Building 29 or 30 and you have reported damage or leaks from Hurricane Irma we will be starting on your units beginning Monday December 11th.  This means all damaged/wet drywall and insulation will be removed and then sealed with plastic until the roofs are replaced.  Please be ready for the crew Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday or next week.   If you need to set a specific appointment date and time with Andrew and his crew please call him at 407 222 6099.   Units I have that reported leaks are: 3937, 3957, 3963, 3979, 3981, 3983, 3985, 3991.   If you live or own in Buildings 29 or 30 and you have a leak but you have not reported it, YOU MUST REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY.  IF YOU OWN IN BUILDING 29 or 30 BUT DO NOT LIVE HERE AND YOU HAVE NOT YET CHECKED YOUR UNIT SINCE THE HURRICANE, YOU MUST DO SO IMMEDIATELY.  If you own one of the following units, we still have not heard from you and you must contact us immediately for a walk through to check for storm damage: 3939, 3943, 3947, 3949, 3961, 3965, 3971, 3973, 3975, 3977, 3989.

*** To anyone in any building who has had a leak during or after the hurricane:  It is supposed to rain this Friday,  The tarps are NOT a guarantee against leaks.  If you have had a leak since the hurricane you will most likely have a leak during the upcoming rain.  You must be prepared for this.  If you need to move furniture or place buckets in the areas that are leaking you should do so this Thursday. .  If you have tenants you must keep them informed on what is going on, or have them sign up for the website so that they know what is going on and they are aware of when the work crews need to get into the unit.  Once we move past your building and start on the next building, they crew will not come back to you.  They cannot keep moving their trucks and equipment back to buildings they already worked on.

Once 29 and 30 are done, the next set of buildings to be worked on will be 31 and 32.  Those Buildings are scheduled for the week of December 18th.

We do not know yet when the roof work will be done.  This is a large insurance claim and will take time to process.  I am giving everyone information as I receive it.  When I receive word on the roofs I will pass it on.  We are busy reviewing bids and finding roofers who have enough time, workers, and materials to take on a project this large. We are also at the mercy of the City of Orlando, we need them to issue permits before any construction can be done.

Lastly I need to be very clear on this.  Our insurance is NOT making any interior drywall, ceiling and insulation repairs until the roofs are replaced.  If you take it upon yourself to make any repairs in your unit, you are assuming all responsibilities for your units repairs.  Our insurance is paying to remove damaged drywall and replace it ONE TIME, therefore they are not replacing the drywall until the roof is replaced because the roofs are STILL GOING TO LEAK until they are replaced.
