replacement prior to painting. Other than surface preparation,
replacement of rotten wood is paramount. Many times rotten
wood is simply painted over and not replaced. This leads to more
cost in the future and a paint job that will fail.
     When the annual inspection is conducted to confirm that the
townhome owner required to paint has complied, owners will be
advised of any rotten wood that should have been replaced. To
avoid additional cost and inconvenience, make sure rotten wood
is replaced when the townhome is being prepared for painting. Do
a pre-walkthrough with your painting contractor to inspect for
rotten wood and obtain an estimate up front.
     All homeowners should, at a minimum annually inspect the
exterior of their townhome to see if repairs are necessary.
Periodic maintenance in the long run will save you money and
will keep up the appearance of your townhome.
     If you need a contractor, check with family and friends first.

   HOMEOWNER AWARENESS = YOUR FAMILIES SAFETY!
                            Do you know that your neighborhood was built during an era that used electrical panels and breakers that were soon thereafter
                            recalled? F.P.E. (Federal Pacific Electric) panels and breakers used during the construction of your neighborhood have been found to be
                            faulty and extremely dangerous. Is your home currently supplied by F.P.E. panels and breakers? If so, Delmark Electric urges you to
                            further your knowledge on the history of this defective product by simply searching “F.P.E. recall” in your search engine. There you will find
                            hundreds of documentations on the hazards presented by these defective products. You may also use the following link to gain further

            What's the key to selling
            a home in SouthPark?
            You have to sell the neighborhood first.
            The key to selling a home in SouthPark is simple: you must sell
            the neighborhood first. We know about SouthPark's unparalled
            quality of life ... the quiet beauty, world-class schools, incredible
            amenties and our unbeatable location. Here's the problem ...
            most buyers and realtors do not, so it's my job to "inform" them.
            I can "sell" this neighborhood better than anyone for one
            reason: I live here, too. If you're considering making a move,
            call me first. You'll have everything to gain.
