Construction updates

Additional Information

**Watch this segment of our website to keep appraised of construction scheduling and progress.  

This site will also post temporary parking changes to facilitate equipment and temporary walkway closures when new planking is replaced.  No access will  be disrupted overnight to any condo.**

                         *********************************************************************************** 


August 10, 2019.  Begin pressure washing and prep work, board replacements where necessary.  Painting the following week to include sides and soffits as well as the trash bin structure.  Colors will match those being used on buildings. The current doors and door trim will remain as they were just painted last year and the color is compatible with the new.


August 27, 2019. Construction Progress update at Bay View HOA:

Pressure washing on the garage buildings has been completed and the primer coat is being applied, although somewhat hampered by weather.  The primer coat is not the final color, which will match the Hardi Plank on the buildings.  The primer coat is a breathable coating with anti fungus added to avoid mold issues. 

Construction of the retaining walls is scheduled for the first week of September, assuming the weather cooperates.  Will keep you posted here!

 

Windows:   Many of us have issues with our aged windows and would like to do something to correct them.   We have asked UHQ for a quotation to replace windows. Attached to this site (See "Downloads" below) is a copy of the window catalog and the quote from UHQ. It is a quality double hung window with a high insulating value and additional ultra violet coating for heat block from the sun.  They are easily cleaned from the inside. Windows would be installed at the time the siding is being replaced on the building, resulting in a lower labor cost.  In addition if we have a total of ten windows there will be an additional $50.00 per window discount, or $100 per unit if you replace all the windows in the front. If you are interested you must commit by October 1st as lead time is eight weeks. Simply copy the UHQ contract, place your name on the top and attach a deposit check to UHQ in the amount of $900.00 and give it to Tony Piano, Unit #16. If you have any other questions contact Tony at 941-993-8229. 


September 3, 2019.  Barrow's Excavating will be starting  removal and construction of the retaining walls next week.  Please watch the windshield of your car for notices of when you will need to find an alternate parking place for a couple of days..  This is needed to facilitate the equipment, trucks, etc.

Thank you


September 23, 2019.  An update from Tony--

1. Reminder--If you are interested in new windows please review the UHQ quotation posted on our site (see Downloads below).  It is approximately $2700 to replace the windows in the front of the condo.  If you want to move ahead with this please just print the quote, place your name and address at the top, sign it, and give it to Tony Piano (Unit 16) along with a deposit check for $900 made out to UHQ Construction.  Call Tony if you have any questions.  941.993.8229.   If we achieve a total of 10 windows the priced is reduced $100 per condo.  


2.  Phase One of the retaining walls is completed.  Phase Two will have consideration after the buildings are completed.


We are meeting with UHQ on Monday to review logistics for siding and walkway replacement.  The really good news here is that we have been moved up on their schedule and they anticipate starting November 1st.  With a little weatherman help they should complete a building in 3 to 4 weeks. I will keep you posted on all the details.


3.  The painting on the garages is completed as well as replacement of some bad boards and sheathing.  The response from everyone has been extremely positive.  We will be installing new light bulbs on the garages and condos.


October 24, 2019.   The confirmed start date for UHQ to begin siding and decking replacement is Monday, November 11th. They will start with building 1 and progress from there to each building, expecting each one to take approximately three weeks to complete. Weather permitting!

A "Construction Notice" letter will be e-mailed and posted on the front doors of owners for each specific building when a firm date has been established to start work on your units.  A copy of the Notice letter for building 1 has been downloaded below as a template/reference and you are encouraged to look it over as soon as possible to let Tony P know of any concerns.


December 12, 2019.   

THE SIDING INSTALLATION IS COMPLETED FOR BUILDING 1, AND IT LOOKS GREAT EXCEPT FOR THE TRIM COLOR THAT WAS USED. (SEE BELOW). ONE UNIT IN BLDG 1 HAD NEW WINDOWS INSTALLED AND THAT WENT VERY SMOOTHLY.

THE WALKWAY WORK ON BUILDING 1 HAS STARTED AS OF 12/11 AND IT LOOKS LIKE ABOUT 1 1/2 DAYS PER WALKWAY.  THE WORKERS WILL NOT LEAVE ANYBODY IN A SITUATION WHERE THEY CANNOT GET IN OR OUT SAFELY. 

ONLY BLDG 1 WILL BE COMPLETED AT THIS TIME, INCLUDING TRIM PAINTING AND REPLACEMENT OF GUTTERING.

START OF BLDG 2 IS POSTPONED FOR APPROXIMATELY A MONTH AWAITING THE PROPER TRIM COLOR.  THERE WAS A CONFUSION ON THE TRIM SELECTION AND THE CONTRACTOR IS ASSUMING THE RESPONSIBILITY.  THE TRIM ON BLDG 1 WILL BE PAINTED TO MATCH THE PROPER COLOR.  THIS SHOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE.

ALL OF THE WORK PROCEEDS IN A PROPER SEQUENCE AND SOMETIMES SCHEDULING OF THE VARIOUS TRADES IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE DAY ANOTHER TRADE FINISHES THEIR WORK.  PLEASE BE PATIENT.  THINGS ARE BEING COMPLETED IN THE APPROPRIATE MANNER AND REMEMBER WE ARE ALSO FIGHTING WEATHER ALONG THE WAY.  RAIN, SNOW AND BELOW FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE ALL CAUSES FOR DELAYS.


THERE IS A LITTLE INCONVENIENCE HERE AND THERE BUT IN THE END WE WILL ALL BE VERY SATISFIED WITH THE OUTCOME.


January 10, 2020. 

UHQ Construction will begin renovation work on Building 2 on Tuesday, January 14th.

Continuing updates and photos will be posted as we progress onward into 2020...good wishes for the New Year, to us all!!


January 23, 2020.  

Construction activity is back in full swing!


Bldg 2 has had siding removed and new siding is being put into place along with trim, soffits, gutters, etc.  We anticipate this work will be complete within two weeks, weather permitting.  Bldg 3 will be started immediately afterward, followed by Bldg 4 about three weeks after that.


The walkways and new stair stringers are being installed after completion of siding on each bldg.

  

Some owners have expressed concern about the siding not being in place during cold weather.  When the new OSD board is in place and the moisture barrier is attached, the insulation value is as good as it was before anything was removed.  The new siding will add to the R-value (insulation).  Upon completion, the buildings will be better sealed and insulated than ever, which should result in a reduction in our heating and air conditioning bills.


We have seen some minor damage in two units thus far—these are drywall nail pops caused from vibrations that occur as the old siding is removed.  If you have watched the crew you see it is a rough job. Please inspect your unit during and after completion to see if there is anything irregular, and report it to Glenn or Tony.  We will arrange to fix the damage upon completion of Bldg 4.


We are starting to assemble a landscaping plan and hopefully can start to implement it in April.

  

The project is moving along well and at a very good pace considering weather.  Let's hope we continue to get a break from the weatherman so we can complete the project by the end of March and enjoy our new digs at Bay View, the “premier” condo neighborhood of Eagle Pointe.
