New Gutters

New Gutters Have Arrived

Colonial Stairs-2
The Colonial is replacing gutters on all buildings and downspouts as needed. The charcoal color works well with our new color scheme and continues to improve the overall look, but more importantly we know the performance of the gutters will greatly improve.

Colonial Stairs-3The clogging and overflowing gutters problems should be a thing of the past. We will install directors in some of the metal valleys which we will have tweaked as we have future rainfalls. Clean out traps will be installed in the building closest to the forest to alleviate the clogging of the gutters and downspouts. We are excited to see the job completed!

Spring Cleaning is Complete

Dominion Power Washing has completed another successful Spring Cleaning project here at The Colonial. The spinning washers that are used on the sidewalks, visitor parking walls and common patio areas around the clubhouse, do a fantastic job making these areas look like new. The vinyl was cleaned throughout the complex, along with the recycling sheds and bike shed as well. Most Owners have cleaned their patios and railings themselves or hired to have the work completed and it really shows the pride in ownership here at The Colonial. Now to enjoy our Summer Season!

The Colonial Front Entrance

The front brick planter gardens are getting a well deserved face lift by having the brick work re-pointed, an acid wash and seal applied will have our front garden looking beautiful and inviting once again.

Thank you to Mr. Erik Nielsen in repairing the spotlight that was hidden which will illuminate the new Colonial sign that Mr. Nielsen has repainted. In May the landscapers will add more topsoil and some flowering shrubs that will really enhance the brick work giving The Colonial great curb appeal!
