Who is responsible to maintain my deck?2018-08-07T18:59:50+00:00

The Deck is an exterior component to your unit and is the responsibility of the Condo Corp to maintain the deck in its natural condition.  If you choose to stain your deck, it becomes your responsibility to maintain the finish on your deck. Should you choose to sell your unit, that responsibility transfers to the buyer of your unit.  The structural components of the deck remain the responsibility of the Condo Corp.

I want to stain my deck. How do I go about doing that?2018-08-07T19:00:01+00:00

As a Condo Board, our advice is to leave your deck unstained and let it age naturally.  This gives a uniform appearance throughout the community. A number of owners have requested permission to stain and permission has been granted.  We have recently approved a stain color that we want all future decks to be stained should you choose to do so. The approved color is Behr ST131 Pewter Semi Transparent Wood Stain. An approved equal will be considered.
