This is higher than we have been accustomed to for the last decade, and deserves some explanation. One unusual line item on this year’s budget estimate is $6650 for additional salt.

Around River Pines

  • Ice Dams –

    As we move into February and March, this is the time we see ice dams form on some units.  The freezing and thawing weather causes this condition and it can damage the roof of your unit and cause leaks.  If you see heavy icicle’s building up around your gutters, give Bob Goodman 248-756-3888 or Greg 734-323-7594 a call and let them know.

  • Snow Season –

    Remember, the snow season is here so please don’t park on the street when we have snow storms and park your car in the garage so we can clean the driveway effectively.

  • Storm Doors – 9/8/15 –

    With the winter weather just around the corner many co-owners consider adding a storm door or upgrading their existing storm door.  River Pines has a restriction on the type and color of storm door so check the rules and regulations under the documents menu and get the specifics on storm doors.

In a condominium association, the Board of Directors establishes the policies, sets the budget and then directs the management firm to carry them out.

Living in River Pines

“Just wanted to share our thoughts about the professional job that Pasko & Tony and their crew from American Euro Painting, Inc. are doing. They spent several days scraping the entire units, caulking, and replacing wood before ever starting to paint. They are methodical, neat,and very hard workers taking great pride in their workmanship. The quality of paint being used gives a rich appearance, especially the front door and garage.  Read more from neighbors
