Storm Damage Update

Almost every building had some shingle damage. Real Property Management Crews are currently working on the shingles. Several flashings were also damaged. The crews will work on the worst cases first. They will be on every roof to inspect for damage even if it is not visible from the street.

For the next week or so, you may want to periodically check your drive for roofing nails. When the wind blows a shingle loose, often times it dislodges the nails and they work their way down the roof to the drive. The crew is picking up loose nails on the roofs, but some may get by.

September 14 Wind Storm

September 14 presented the highest winds in this area. Gusts of almost 70 mph were recorded in the area. We were fortunate that we did not have structural damage. The majority of our damage was shingles. A look around indicates that 27 of our 35 buildings had shingle damage. The carpet on the putting green was pulled off and several flashings were blown away. All in all, we fared OK for the velocity of the wind.
We will work as fast as we can to get the shingles and other items repaired. However, many areas of the city had significant damage. Because of the damage throughout the Columbus and Powell areas, it will be difficult to get crews in here immediately.
Remember, the tar paper is still intact so we do not anticipate leaks.
