Dryer vent cleaning and maintenance is the responsibility of each homeowner. The cost to repair damage resulting from poor dryer vent maintenance is a homeowner expense. Avoid the disaster of a fire; have this easy maintenance service performed.
Hose Bibs (Outside Faucets)
Spring is here: time to turn on your hose bibs! (Outside faucets are used by staff to water landscape and for other maintenance activities.) First, make sure the outside water valve is turned OFF. Next, turn the inside valve, typically located in your unit’s basement, to the ON position. Verify the water is ON by checking the outside spigot for water flow. If the faucet leaks or if you are unable to locate your inside water valve, please contact the management office by calling (703) 385-1133 or by putting in a service request at: https://windgate2.connectresident.com/. Please confirm that your hose bibs are working properly. Maintenance of hose bibs is a homeowner responsibility once again, since the board voted to return to the original delegation of responsibility for hose bibs. Owners can be issued violation notices for leaking or faulty hose bibs, plus it wastes water, which is a community expense affecting all owners.
Termite Treatment April 29
Property-wide termite treatment will be done by Covenant Pest Control beginning Monday, April 29, through Tuesday, May 7 (9 am - 6 pm daily). ALL ITEMS MUST BE MOVED away from the foundation/walls for treatment. Patios must be unlocked to allow access to the entire perimeter. Treatment is made by injecting a solution into the soil around the foundation of each building. The area is treated whether the soil is exposed or covered.
Move Your Car May 8
Windgate II parking lots will be cleaned Wednesday, May 8, between 9 am and 5 pm, weather permitting. To allow for the most thorough cleaning possible, we are requiring the removal of all vehicles from the parking lot. Therefore, you must remove your vehicle from Windgate II parking lots no later than 9 am on Wednesday, May 8. If you will be gone during this time, please park off-site before you leave or consider giving a trusted neighbor a key to your vehicle so they can move the car for you. Windgate III has generously agreed to allow us to temporarily park in Windgate III parking spaces during the cleaning. We are urging you to comply. If you do not remove your vehicle, it will be moved by the towing company. Thanks for your cooperation as we dispose of winter's sand and spring's tree debris.
Dwayne Miller, our long-time maintenance supervisor, recently let us know that he will not be returning from medical leave to his job at Windgate II. Community life without Dwayne will be quite a change. Volunteers are organizing a farewell party at the gazebo on May 19 and have set up a GoFundMe campaign for Dwayne. Read about Dwayne's service to our community and about the GoFundMe campaign.
Pool & Parking Applications
Pool and parking pass applications have been mailed to all owners. Completed applications were due April 1. You may mail, email or drop off at the pool house (the drop box on the right, marked "Parking/Pool Applications"). Renters may wish to confirm that their unit’s owner has their current information since it is the owner who submits the applications. The pool opens May 25. Current parking passes expire May 31.
Every owner must complete and return a pool pass application and a parking form. Residents may not park in Windgate II with expired parking passes (they expire May 31). Access to the pool will be denied without a valid pool pass or guest pass for 2019. If you were issued and kept a plastic card pass in 2018, please request renewal stickers for 2019. If you do not have your pool pass from last year, you must request a new card. Replacement of resident pool passes will cost $10 per pass.
Owners who are renting out their unit may convey their right to use the pool to their tenants by completing the appropriate section of the pool pass application. Please provide a copy of the tenant’s lease with the pool application. Only owners OR renters can use the pool. If an owner conveys their pool rights to their tenants, the owner is not eligible to receive a pool pass.
