Save the Date: June 20th 6:30 Preventive Water Damage Program Presentation

Water damage claims are the most frequent home insurance claim in Charbonneau.  Many can be avoided.  Here are some examples of recent water damage that owners had to deal with:

 

  1. Ice maker water line burst during the night.  The next morning the owners’ new hardwood floors were all buckled and completely destroyed.  It was a nightmare for the owner to get a good contractor to come out and replace her floors and cost many thousands of dollars.

 

  1. The drain hose on a washing machine failed and an entire load of bleach water dumped onto the floor destroying the floor.

 

  1. A hot water tank located in the attic failed and water damaged the ceiling and leaked onto and damaged beautiful antique furniture.

Fairway Drive Work Delayed one week (City of Wilsonville replacement of sewers and storm drains)

You probably already guessed …. The Fairway Dr/Boones Bend Rd has been delayed a week.  I spoke with Zachary (Civil Engineer for the project) today and he stated that they are having a meeting on Thursday and there will more complete information on Friday on the Website http://www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/651/Charbonneau-High-Priority-Utility-Repair  New Start date Monday April 24th

 

Some of you may have received  letters from the city describing  the next area of Charbonneau to be included in the sewer, water and storm drain projects. This April through August the city will be replacing sewers and some storm drains. The project which effects CHOA will be starting on Boones Bend at its first intersection with French Prairie down to Fairway, then up Fairway to 8065 SW Fairway Dr.

Since Boones Bend and Fairway Dr are well traveled roads I thought it would be good to let everyone know about the coming construction.

Construction will start April 17th, there will  likely be no access to Fairway Dr from the French Prairie 1st entrance into Charbonneau, think about taking the 2nd entrance to Charbonneau if you need to visit anyone on Fairway Dr, especially between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm from April 17th April 24th through August 2017.

There may be a shortage of guest parking during the day on some of Fairway Dr and Boones Bend as those who live on Fairway may need to use the guest parking areas during construction.

Check your insurance = Make sure you are appropriately covered

Back in October of 2016 a post was sent to warn all homeowners of the danger of burst pipes and the precaution of shutting off your water when you are not in residence.

With the recent cold spells, we did have a house where the water pipes burst.  Unfortunately for the home owner, they had not obtained the correct dual homeowner insurance coverage.

Your HOA has a policy (Condominium/Association Policy) for all of our homeowners as part of the requirement to live in an HOA.   This coverage is through State Farm and covers your home and garage structures, but not your personal property.  The State Farm policy has a deductible of “In case of loss for All Perilof $10,000.  Water damage would come under “All Peril”

All homeowners should purchase a separate policy covering contents and other items not physically attached to the structure.  Please check with your insurance agent to make sure that you are appropriately covered, and that your Separate policy will cover what is not covered by the Association policy. Specifically, consider a rider to your contents coverage for structural damage up to $10,000 that will cover your deductible on the CHOA insurance policy.
