The Liberty Lakes Condominium Association Board is recommending that homeowners with a deck stain them once per year, but will only require that the deck be stained every two years. This is in direct reference to the Rules and Regulations and By-Laws set forth when the Association Board was implemented in 2007.
For those homeowners with a deck, who have currently reached the two year mark since the last deck staining, or simply wish to re-stain their deck, the Assocation Board is providing homeowners with three color options to choose from when staining their deck. The stain options are as follows…
A list of all the deck owners is on file, along with the approximate dates of their most recent stain application as observed by a monthly community walk around by Board members and Vanguard Community Management staff. When the deck owner has reached one year since staining, a recommendation letter will be mailed to the owner to have the deck stained. If the owner chooses not to stain, and when the two year period is reached, a follow up letter will be issued requesting the deck to be stained. If the deck is not stained in a reasonable amount of time after the letter is sent, the Association will hire a contractor to stain the deck, with all charges be assessed back to the owner. This will ensure that our community’s aesthetics will benefit from newly stained decks every one to two years.
The Association Board is also looking into having a representative from Home Depot or Lowes come out to give a demonstration on deck staining, and answer any questions, in an effort to help any deck owner who may be considering staining their deck it themselves. Details will follow if the Board gauges there is enough interest.
