Appendix B

 Responsibility for the maintenance, repair, and replacement of sliding glass doors and windows

 Date: August 12, 2009

To: All members of Windward East Condominium Association

From: Board of Directors

          Article IX, Section (a) of the Declaration of Condominium specifies the Owner’s responsibility for the maintenance, repair, and replacement of sliding glass doors and windows. Section (b) of article IX requires the Association to paint exterior doors and windows except those which open onto patio porches/balconies.  The Rules and Regulations have long permitted Front Door Screen/Storm Doors.        

          In recognition of the need for maintaining/restoring uniformity in the external appearance of the condominium, the Board is issuing guidelines for the approval of future installations or replacement of these elements.

For reference, the recommended storm/screen/security door models are:

          ADDENDUM SPECIFICATIONS:

1)   New Installation/Replacement of Entrance Storm/Screen Doors.

a)    Screen Door Only: Notwithstanding the fact that screen-only doors are less expensive than the combination doors, the minor cost savings are offset by lack of durability. Therefore, the Board will NOT approve screen-only replacement doors.

b)   Storm/Screen Doors: Should be brown/bronze similar to:

i)     EMCO 300 Triple-Track: Special Order at Home Depot.

ii)    EMCO 200 Triple-Track: In-stock at Home Depot.

iii)  EMCO 200 Self-Storing with Retractable Insect Screen: Item # A818-712, Special Order at Home Depot.

iv)  EMCO 75 Self-Storing: In-stock at Home Depot, Item # A542-167

c)    Security Doors: Should be brown/bronze with Brushed nickel finish only similar to:

v)    Larson Duratech Retractable Screen Storm Door Special Order only at Lowe’s, Item # 220604

2)   All installations/replacements must have prior approval of the Board of Directors in the form of a letter.

 

Please keep the attached Addendum, passed by the Board of Directors at the July 15, 2009 meeting with your April 2008 Rules and Regulations Document.

FORWARD

 

In accordance with the Bylaws of the Association, the Board of Administration (BOA), also known as the Board of Directors (BOD), and hereafter referred to as the Board, updates, issues, and revises the Rules and Regulations as authorized in Article 4, Paragraph K (4) of the Bylaws.

 

No item in the Rules and Regulations is intended to conflict with terms of the Bylaws or Articles of Incorporation of Windward East Condominium Association or the Declaration of Condominium of Windward East.

 

These Rules and Regulations are published for the benefit of owners, residents and guests.  Some of these are dictated by local, county and/or state law--these items will be identified in following pages where appropriate. 

 

It is necessary for everyone in a condominium to exercise care and consideration for their neighbors with whom they share common property, external space and recreational facilities.

 

Enforcement of the rules will be in accordance with provisions of the Declarations of Condominium Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Windward East Association.  Disregarding notification of a violation and/or flagrant actions contrary to the Rules and Regulations may result in fines levied by the Board of Directors.  Fines up to $100 may be assessed per individual violation as authorized by Florida Statutes, Chapter 718, “The Condominium Act”.

 

Every resident (owner, renter, and guest) needs to read and abide by these Rules and Regulations.  If clarification is needed on any issue, please contact a member of the Board. 

 

                                                   GENERAL

All renters must register at the Office within 24 hours after arrival. (See pg 18)

--Turtle season lighting restrictions are listed in Appendix A. Owners must adhere to this City ordinance or be fined as noted. PLEASE READ THE ORDINANCE.

 

      RESPONSIBILITY OF OWNERS

                Individual Unit Preventative Measures and Maintenance

All plumbing and electrical connections inside the condo unit are the responsibility of the unit owner(s).  This includes all drain connections to the common plumbing (toilets, showers, tubs, sinks, washers, hot water heater, air conditioning, etc.), and all electrical including the fuse box, switches and outlets, cable and phone.

 

AIR CONDITIONER DRAIN LINE

     Monthly action:  Add 1/2 cup of bleach (such as Clorox) into the condensate (drain) line and check that the plastic connector line is clear.

 

THIS MAINTENANCE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH UNIT OWNER.  IF LINES BECOME CLOGGED, WATER LEAKAGE TO UNITS BELOW CAN CAUSE SEVERE DAMAGE.  IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PERFORM THIS MAINTENANCE, CONTACT THE OFFICE FOR A DEMONSTRATION.

 NON RESIDENT OWNERS SHOULD CONTRACT WITH THEIR RENTAL AGENCY TO INSURE THIS PREVENTATIVE MEASURE IS TAKEN.  MAJOR DAMAGE TO UNITS HAS BEEN CAUSED BY CLOGGED AIR CONDITIONER DRAINS.

 NOTE 1: FAILURE TO PROVIDE PROPER MAINTENANCE COULD RESULT IN WATER PENETRATION AND DAMAGE TO THE UNIT(S) BELOW AND COULD RESULT IN OWNER BEING HELD LIABLE FOR EXPENSES TO REPAIR ALL RESULTING DAMAGE.

                 

                          BALCONY SLIDERS

Routinely check sliders to ensure that they are in good repair and the sill drains are open.  Additionally, sills should be maintained to ensure that all screws, cracks, holes, etc. are sealed from water penetration. Owners, (resident and non-resident) are responsible for maintenance and repair.

(SEE NOTE 1, pg 8) 

                                                         DRAINS

All units in the same stack (e.g. 101, 201, 301, etc.) have a common drain.  Any abuse to the common drain results in problems for those living below.  To prevent potential problems:

    

Do not pour grease into sinks as it coagulates in the common drain.

 

Do not deposit large vegetable/fruit seeds in sink drains as they can accumulate and clog the main drain.

 

When using garbage disposal, run water continuously for one minute after all refuse has been dispelled.  Avoid putting onions, cabbage, celery, pasta, large seeded vegetables/fruit and potato peelings in the disposal.

 

Only use “low sudsing” (ALL, SURF, ARM & HAMMER) liquid soap in washing machine.  Powdered detergents tend to accumulate and can clog the drain.

 

                           DRYER VENTS

Dryer vents (from dryer to common vent) should be cleaned by Owner periodically. Build-up of lint in these vents may cause a fire.

METAL VENTS (NOT PLASTIC) ARE REQUIRED BY CODE FOR NEW DRYERS……IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT EXISTING PLASTIC VENTS BE REPLACED.

 

HOT WATER HEATERS

Hot water heaters are usually warranted for five (5) years and have a 10-12 year life.  It is incumbent on the owners, whether full-time or part-time, to inspect on a regular basis.  For rental units, it is the realtor’s responsibility, but it behooves the owner to make sure this is done.  You cannot expect a renter to be vested in this type of preventative maintenance.

     (SEE NOTE 1, pg 8)

 

MAIN WATER SHUTOFF VALVE

 Many owners have replaced the original gate valves (conventional turn wheel operated) with ball valves (lever operated).  If the main shut off valve in your unit has not been replaced, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you do so to prevent possible leaks to the units below and, also, to make life easier for yourself. THE MAIN WATER SHUT OFF VALVE SHOULD BE CLOSED WHEN THE UNIT IS VACANT.

 

TOILETS

It is the Owners responsibility to provide proper maintenance of the toilet tank hardware. Failure of this hardware can result in significance loss of water and expense to the Association. The Owner can be held responsible for this cost. Shut off of the main water valve when the unit is vacant will preclude water damage if the toilet hardware fails.

 

WASHING MACHINE HOSES

The standard black rubber inlet hoses are prone to bursting.  Replacement with stainless steel braid armored hoses is strongly recommended.  A good safety measure is to shut off the unit main water valve when away. 

 

Condo Unit Remodeling

All Owners planning to remodel their units must submit a plan to the Board for approval. An approval letter from the Board is required by the City of Cocoa Beach before permits for the work is issued. Owners shall meet with the Cocoa Beach building department to establish what permits are required for their proposed work.

 

Recycle

Recycle bins are located on the south side of the complex.  These are for glass, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, magazines, newspapers and telephone books.

Note:  No recyclables are to be deposited in plastic or paper bags. Empty into appropriate bins and deposit plastic or paper bags in the dumpsters.   

 

Trash and Trash Chute

PLEASE NOTE:  Trash is picked up on Monday and Thursday of each week, usually in the morning.  Do not use trash chutes on these days until trash has been picked up and the dumpsters are back in place.  If the dumpster is in the parking lot, please do not put trash/rubbish down the chute.

 A trash chute is located on each floor, north of the stairwell door directly behind the East elevator.  Trash/garbage must be placed in plastic bags and tied before depositing in the trash chute. Ground floor occupants should take their refuse to the dumpster located behind stairwell on ground floor at the convergence of buildings A and B.

 Under no circumstances should trash bags be forced down the chute.  If the trash chute is jammed, please notify the office and/or a Board member.  Do not stack garbage on the ground or the walkway; carry it down to the dumpster until the chute has been cleared.

 Do not put large and/or heavy items down the trash chute…use the dumpster on the first floor of the Hi-rise building or the one located next to the car wash near the townhouses. ALL CARDBOARD BOXES MUST BE BROKEN DOWN BEFORE DISCARDING IN A DUMPSTER, NOT THE TRASH CHUTE. 

Furniture, carpets, mattresses and large appliances are to be put on the east side of the recycle bins wood fence.  Please notify office prior to placing items there so that special pick up can be arranged for.  Owner/occupant or vendor is responsible for the disposition of these items. 

 Construction debris must be removed from the property by the Contractor performing work in each unit….DO NOT USE CONDO TRASH BINS. 

 Construction dumpsters may be used on the property after contacting a Board member who will approve and assign a location for such dumpster.

 Hazardous materials shall not be disposed of anywhere on the property. Contact the condo office for direction regarding disposal of this material. 

 Christmas trees are not to be put down the chute. Place them by the recycle bins.

 

Security Keys

Security keys are required to access elevators, pool, beach, tennis court, recreation room, ground floor bathrooms and first floor stairwells.  Each key is numbered and the office maintains a list of each key issued.  Initially, up to five keys were issued to each unit.  Lost keys may be replaced, by Owner request in writing only, at a cost of $100 each.  Damaged or inoperable keys may be replaced at a cost of $20 each, by Owner request in writing and return of the “damaged” key.

 

For security and safety, the ground floor stairwell, recreation room and pool entrance doors/gate must remain locked at all times.  Do not leave doors or gates propped open.

 

Elevators and Doors

Elevators and first floor stairwell doors are opened with a security key. 

Playing is not permitted in the elevators.  Children should be instructed regarding proper use of the elevators.

Do not hold an elevator for individual convenience.

Bathers must be reasonably dry before entering the elevators.

The west elevator must be used for all freight, furniture and all oversized objects.  Notify the office if you are moving household goods.  In turn, protection pads will be installed and a notice will be posted that the elevator is in use for deliveries and removal of large objects if deliveries/removals are extensive and time consuming.

Smoking in elevators is prohibited--this is a State law.

Occupants must be certain of individuals they allow into the elevator.  For safety and security, do not allow anyone access unless known to you.

 An emergency system is located in the elevators and should be used ONLY if the elevator does not function or if one is entrapped in the elevator. Follow instructions documented inside the elevator.

If the power fails, emergency lighting will come on in the elevator.  The elevator will automatically return to the first floor and the door will open. Exit the elevator immediately. The elevator will be inoperative until power is restored. 

 

Telephone Security System

An occupant telephone security system is located next to the east and west elevators. Visitors canlocate the entry code number next to the unit occupant’s name on the roster….instructions are posted.  The visitor will dial the code number which will ring in the desired unit.  The recipient of the call should press 9 to send the elevator to the first floor for the visitor. If there is no answer from the unit, press the “RED” button to hang up. (Please see Appendix E, Page 28 for Instructions on the call boxes)

 

Keys/Access to Units

A member of the Board or its agents (accompanied by a Windward East Representative) may enter the units at reasonable times for the following reasons:

          --Maintenance, repair, inspection or improvement.

          --Pest Control:  Owners will be advised of scheduled maintenance or pest control activity via notice on the Condo bulletin boards. The townhouses and first (1st) floor Hi-rise condos are treated every other month. A licensed, bonded and insured company employee performs this maintenance and will be accompanied by a Windward East Board Member or Employee.

          --To deal with emergencies:  An “Entry Log” will be kept in the office.  When keys are used to enter a unit in the absence of the owner/renter, an entry will be made in the log, and a note will be left in the unit indicating date/time/reason for entry and signed by the office administrator or Board member(s) performing entry.

Duplicates of garage keys, regular entrance keys and emergency release keys for garage electric openers must be kept in the office for emergency use. Owners with electric openers are required to leave a duplicate control key or access code with the office for emergency purposes. It is the Owners responsibility to provide the tools for access.

 Keys, common and unit, will not be given to realtors or workers not contracted by the Association.  Entry to units for relatives or guests of an Owner may be provided only upon authenticated approval by the Owner.  No keys will be provided.  In this instance, an entry in the log will be made.

 

Grills

As of January 2004, Electric Grills only are permitted on exterior balconies and patios. Hibachi, gas-fired grill or charcoal grills are not permitted on condominium property, however, they may be stored in the garage (SEE PG 7).  Appendix C letter from Cocoa Beach Fire Department governs this dictate and identifies fines associated with noncompliance. 

 

Balconies/Patios

As of April 1996, balcony floor covering (e.g. tile, Chattahoochee or carpets) other than Association weatherproofing will NOT be permitted.  Grandfathered balcony floor covering must be maintained and waterproofed by the owner.

 Ground floor patio covering is allowed, however Board approval is required prior to installation.

 If the removal of existing tile or floor covering is required to make structural repairs, it shall be at the Owners expense, and such floor covering may not be reinstalled. Repairs to small areas of removed floor covering may be made by Owners only with Board approval and at the Owners expense.

Sliding doors, including the door tracks and frames plus waterproofing of these items are the responsibility of the owner.

 Patios/balconies shall not be used for storage (bicycles, coolers, etc.).

Patio surfaces must conform to the specifications approved by the Board.  Ground level patios only may be enclosed by screen as specified by the Board.  When the buildings are to be painted or repaired, the bid for their service will include as a separate item, the excess cost for masking, preparations and painting the screen enclosed patios by unit.  This cost will be assessed to the owner of the unit. 

 

Shutters

Shutter installation requires a Board approval letter and permit from the City of Cocoa Beach. The Cocoa Beach building department will not issue a permit without a Board approval letter.

Shutters are to conform to the building color.  Installation and maintenance are the owner’s expense.

Roll-up type shutters are mandatory on walkway windows and all other building windows. All shutters mounted against the building must be roll-up shutters….this includes over the sliding glass doors on balconies and patios.

The Board strongly recommends roll-up type shutters, attached to the main wall over slider doors and windows.

 Accordion storm shutters may be installed only on the patio/balcony inside the safety railing. Accordion storm shutters are not allowed on walkway windows or any other building windows, including over sliders on balconies and patios. If the accordion shutters and attachment hardware is required to be removed to accommodate patio/balcony repairs, the owner will be responsible for the expense. The re-installation is also the Owners responsibility and expense.

 THE BOARD DOES NOT RECOMMEND ACCORDIAN STORM SHUTTERS.

 It is strongly recommended that shutters be closed when the unit is unoccupied.

 

Screen Enclosures

Screen enclosures may be installed on the ground floor townhouse patios and the ground floor patios of the hi-rise buildings only.  No screen enclosures are permitted above the ground floors of the Hi-rise or Townhouse buildings.

 Owners are responsible for maintenance and repairs of the screen enclosure. If not corrected after notification from the Board, a contractor will repair the damage and the unit Owner(s) will be assessed the amount of the repair.

Should removal of the screen enclosure be necessary for structural repairs, the removal and re-installation will be at the owner’s expense.

The frame for a screen enclosure should be 1X2 box aluminum with 2X2 struts for support.  Color must be brown to blend in with the railing and color scheme of the building.  Ground floor units require a kick-plate of at least 16 inches to prevent damage from the lawn maintenance equipment and intrusion from the sprinkler system.  At least one door is required for exit.  Stainless steel anchors are recommended due to the salt environment.

 

 Sliding Glass Doors, Windows and Screens

Maintenance and replacement is the Owners responsibility. Bronze frames are required to conform to the building colors and requires Board approval.  Replacements must also meet building code and law as required by the City of Cocoa Beach.

 

Entrance Doors

Owners are responsible for maintenance and replacement of entrance doors, jams and thresholds. Replacement doors will conform to the standard of the building. The Association is responsible for the painting of entrance doors and door jams that are accessible with the door closed.

 Damage or deterioration to entrance doors shall be repaired upon notice from the Board.  If action to correct the problem is not taken by the Owner, a contractor will be hired to make the repair and the Owner will be assessed the amount of the repair.

 

Storm/Screen Doors

Storm/Screen Doors may be installed at the owner’s expense.  Doors and hardware will be brown/bronze to conform to the color scheme of the buildings.  The owner is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep.  Deterioration of the door in any manner shall be repaired upon notice from the Board.  If not corrected, the Board will arrange for a contractor to repair the damage or remove the screen door and the owner(s) will be assessed for the amount. 

 All modifications such as installation of entrance doors and hardware, screen doors, shutters, balcony enclosures, window replacements, may be made only if they conform to the style prescribed by the condominium and with prior approval of the Board. All modifications must conform to all applicable building and safety codes. (See Appendix B, page 25 for specifications approved by the board)

 

Garages and Doors

The association is responsible for roofs, gutters, outside stucco walls and electrical service outlets as installed inside the garage.  Owner(s) are responsible for all maintenance of their garage door and door opener, hardware, light bulbs and door locks.  The Association will be responsible for painting garage doors.  Damage to garage doors is the responsibility of the owner(s) and will be repaired upon notice from the Board.  If not corrected, the Board will hire a contractor to make the repair and assess the owner accordingly.  Any repairs/replacement must conform to existing doors and Board approval is required.

Electrical equipment such as a refrigerator, freezer, dehumidifiers, etc., and other large appliances being used in the garage will be charged a monthly fee as determined by the Board and cost estimates from Florida Power and Light. Owners are required to submit a list of all electrical appliances/equipment in their garages to the Board.

For security reasons and appearances, it is requested that garage doors remain closed when not in use.

OWNERS ARE PROHIBITED FROM RENTING GARAGES TO ANYONE NOT LIVING AT WINDWARD EAST AS REGISTERED TENANTS.

 

Common Area Care

Owners are financially responsible for damage done to common areas, when such damage is the result of any action or omission by themselves, family members, guests, contractors, renters (including family and guests of renters), and pets.  Occupants are reminded that Board members and residents have the right to protect the property from abuse.

 

Recreation Room

The Recreation (Rec) Room is available for use between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m., unless special arrangements are made with the Board.

The Rec Room facilities are for the use of residents, their immediate families and house guests.  Your security key will permit you access.  The Room is locked when not in use. 

No item of the Association property may be removed at any time from the Rec Room.

Wet bathing suits are not allowed in the Rec Room.  Pets are not allowed in the Rec room. Access to the restroom and showers is via the separate patio entrance to the west side of the pool.  Your security key will permit access.

 

Reserving Recreation Rooms for Special Functions

The Rec Room may be reserved by an Owner or Lessee for a special function.  The unit owner or lessee making the reservation must be present at the event. The Rec Room will not be available for use to outside clubs or organizations unless approved by the Board. THE REC ROOM WILL NOT BE USED FOR COMMERCE FUNCTIONS.
