The waterproofing on the east side that was scheduled for fall has been accelerated due to some water intrusions in closets of the 2-3 stack created by wind driven rains. Not bad, but enough to be proactive prior to peak hurricane season. The contractor has been approved for the entire east side of the building including balcony floors to be re-coated.
The attached link is a request form to fill out and then you send it directly to insurance company. They will then take it from there by sending to your lender. So it is highly important that you fill out properly. This should streamline the request procedure in order to keep your mortgage company satisfied.
We are moving along with our continuing projects around Atalaya in preparation for the season. In April we will be performing our backflow preventer testing that is mandated by Grand Strand Water & Sewer. This requires the building to have water shutdown for an hour or so. If anyone is planning to change out old gate valves to ball valves for your water heater that is the time, but coordination is most important, because we can not keep building shut down longer than we need to.
Be advised that the 1st qtr. billing you received incorrectly states that you should write check to Atalaya Interval. Please make your checks to Atalaya Horizontal. There was a mix up at the management company.
We are pleased to announce that County Code signed off as completely approved our deck re-build. We have two sets of steps leading to the beach as well as a ramp on the North end with a shower. Also we have two showers set-up as you come in through the door as before.
We also repaired and replaced storefronts windows around the indoor pool with removable panels. These are deigned to be removed with an impending storm with surge that will need to pass through pool area as did with Mathew.
We were granted our variance from the Zoning Board of Appeals in order for us to build the 10 feet on the North and Southside of the deck towards the property lines, so we can have at least what we had before the storm. What this means is we are on record for this and should not have the issues we had getting on record obtaining permitting in the event this ever happens again.
Our beach access steps are completed and back in use, as well as our outdoor pool fence is re-constructed with heavier material than before. All this was performed by our deck contractor in a matter of a couple of days from start to finish.
The beach is full again for now with the re-nourishment. It took the contractor two days to complete the beach in front of the Resort. The next plan is County coming through and rebuilding the berms as they did after Matthew. Don't forget hurricane season ends November 30th so we have a ways to go yet.
The findings were four units that required very little attention by FSA. They were 502, 805, 1502, 1602. There were air movers and dehumidifiers at Living room sliders as well as owners closets. Closet were emptied and then put back after two days of equipment usage.
Fence at the outdoor pool that was knocked down is under re-construction, and should be completed by the weekend of September 23rd.
Our post storm inspections were good in findings. We found some units with very little moisture at the sliders, and we are having FSA here tomorrow to qualify. We also had the elevator company here to inspect the cars for any moisture that might have gotten on top of the cars. The deck contractor was here to put final thought s together on the deck construction and will begin the material order tomorrow in hopes to have it here next week.
We were fortunate to not have Florida type damage, but we did sustain some. The sand that was piled up at the Resort after Matthew is gone leaving the rocks only with no access to the north that we had through out the year. Our temporary steps that were built onto the actual access deck are gone. Contractors have been called, and will be here today to get back what we had to then move forward with the deck re-build. We will also have the deck itself inspected for integrity.
