The board recently updated our CONTRACTOR INFORMATION document with information important to you. This document primarily covers your responsibilities and your contractor’s responsibilities for renovations, large deliveries/removals (refrigerators, sofas, dressers etc.), and roof access for either the lower or upper roof.
The primary changes to this document are in the first section and geared to keeping track of contractors’ comings and goings. While we hope to never have any damage to our common areas, including our new roof, if something does happen, we’ll have a record of the contractors and technicians who have performed work for us.
· Residents are no longer required to get written board approval for renovations.
· Residents are asked to simply notify Robin (via regular email) when engaging a contractor or technician for renovations, large deliveries/removals, and upper or lower roof access.
This notification includes:
· your name and unit number
· whether it’s a renovation, large delivery/removal, or lower or upper roof access
· the contractor’s name and contact info
· start and expected end date
· whether the contractor/technician has liability insurance
With your simple notification to Robin, we’ll have a record of these activities and we’ll follow up only in the event of any damage occurring.
You’ll be able to easily access a copy of this document any time since several copies will be posted on our bulletin board (please take one when you need it), and it will be posted on the Pilot House website for you to just print as needed.
