Deluge

Who knew not having gutters would be such a pain in the ass?

With our recent spate of snow melts and early spring rains, our gutterless association is taking a drubbing.

While some of us aren’t affected by the recent soggy weather, some of my other neighbors are being soaked to the bone.

Why? Since there are no gutters to catch the run off, water is streaming down the building and in some cases through my neighbor’s back windows and into their units.

Obviously we need to seal the roof from where the porch roof was taken away and reattach the gutters. All of the remedies have been set in motion to make this happen as quickly as possible.

The other important point that this brings to the forefront is the poor quality of workmanship performed on our building during the “rehabilitation.”

There should be no reason for water to come pouring into and around a window frame if the fa├žade of the building and the window was installed properly. Perhaps it may also be a tuck pointing issue.

All I know is that you should not be greeted with buckets of water pouring into your home at 1:00 in the morning.
