Condominium Associations

The explosion of condominium buildings in the last 10 years has brought with it an equal shock that many of these buildings were not developed in a manner that is adequate to insure long term performance of major components. That's a nice way of saying the buildings need major improvements and repairs even though they've been recently "rehabbed".

 Often, the condo association members have no idea where to start. Even if they do take a pro-active stance toward building repair, they find themselves comparing apples to oranges when they begin receiving proposals or recommendations from tradesman or contractors. The condominium consulting component of my inspection business grew out of this predicament.

I meet with the Condo Board or association, listen to their concerns, and propose a custom inspection and report process to best address those items needing attention. Because condos often have budget limitations, concerns are prioritized on an as necessary basis.

 I review proposals, meet with contractors, and monitor work in progress to ensure that the building is receiving the most cost effective repair, and to make sure the work conforms to current industry standards and applicable building codes. Since I do not have a vested interest in the work being performed, I do not have a trade bias as to how to best achieve results.  I draw on my experience of over 2 decades of building inspection and consulting on hundreds of building projects to propose solutions that best meet the needs of specific condominium buildings.

Call my office and I will be glad to describe additional services available to condo boards and/or management companies to properly allocate resources for maintenance and repair of these structures.
