Wood Replacement Update

Posted by VermontVillas on Saturday, September 5, 2015, In : Maintenance 
All 22 buildings have now had their wood fascia replaced and painted, and have been re-paneled with Hardie Board, a fiber-cement product that simulates wood. This project began over four years ago and was accomplished by our maintenance company, with the cooperation of all residents and owners. The new-look exterior hopefully will last for many years. A new community improvement project, to be determined by the Board at the next meeting, will begin soon!

Our pedestrian gate on Vermont Ave. was recently repaired.  All of our gates get heavy use, taking on hundreds of open and close cycles per day.  Maintenance/repair is costly.  Please:
