Fence Maintenance Update
The San Elijo Hills Community Association is in the process of painting the Common Area tubular steel or wrought iron fences in the San Elijo community, which is the Association’s responsibility under Section 9.1.5 of the CC&R’s.
Depending upon environmental conditions, this type of fencing requires maintenance approximately every five years in order to reduce the need of replacement. The Board of Directors recognizes that maintenance of the fences can be intrusive to owners and expensive for the Association. The goal is to reduce both the frequency of painting and the long-term expense to the Association while ensuring it meets its maintenance obligations.
In preparation for this project, the Board of Directors selected a two-part epoxy product and negotiated a seven-year warranty. The Board of Directors is hopeful that these efforts will help extend the life of the fence so that it will only need to be maintained every nine to ten years. If the Board is successful in its efforts, maintenance costs should be greatly reduced, and the homeowners will only be inconvenienced every ten years versus every five years.
If all goes as planned, the perimeter fences should be completed by early summer. Once the fences are done, the Association will focus on walls, vehicle gates, monuments and other community features that require painting this year.
The Board of Directors would like to thank the homeowners impacted by this project for their patience and cooperation. If you have a fence that is not maintained by the Association and you would like to paint it to match the freshly painted perimeter fencing, we can provide you with specifications for an acrylic paint application.
