6/19 Repair Projects

posted by Jen

Construction administration for repairs is a service we regularly provide for multi-family Associations. For each Association shown below, we first performed an initial evaluation of their balconies to determine the extent of renovations needed, then created the repair specifications and assisted with the bid process. Contractors were chosen for the repairs and we are now monitoring the work with weekly site visits followed by a comprehensive report detailing the progress. If your Association is in need of a repair/replacement project contact us today at 847.549.5900 for a proposal!

If your property is 40 years old or greater it may need the masonry mortar joints re-pointed. We can prepare scope specifications for the mason so the new mortar closely matches the original unlike the work shown in these photos. Email Jen at jk@jhersheyarchitecture.com for a proposal!

The HOA shown below is newly constructed and has not been entirely transitioned over from the developer. We were asked by the Property Manager to evaluate drainage issues some Homeowners are experiencing in their backyards and provide our expert opinion and recommendations (as necessary) for corrective actions the developer should be taking. If your Association needs an expert building or property evaluation give us a call today!
