GET ACC APPROVAL FOR PROJECTS

Just a reminder to those of you who may be planning home improvement projects this summer.

In an effort to provide and protect each individual homeowner’s rights and values, it is required that any homeowner or group of homeowners considering improvements (examples: exterior painting, patio covers, outside buildings, fences, decks, basketball goal, etc.) of their deeded property other than landscaping, submit a Request for Home Improvement Approval to the Architectural Control Committee for approval of the Homeowner’s Association prior to initiating work on planned improvements. If any change is made that has not been approved, the committee has the right to ask the homeowner to remove the improvement from the property.

You may log onto www.barringtonplace.net, go to the “Committees” page and print out a form. You may also drop by MASC Austin Properties, Inc., 945 Eldridge Road, and pick up a copy.



WARNING SIGNS OF FOUNDATION REPAIRS

Think You Have Foundation Problems?
It doesn’t always take a specialist to tell you that you have foundation problems. You can determine this for yourself if you examine your house carefully. Here is a checklist for you to follow:

  • Cracks in the interior walls. Look at all the corners of windows, doors, and at joints where walls meet walls, ceilings or doors for signs that they are pulling away from each other.
  • Cracks in a brick fireplace wall.
  • Nails “popping” out of the gypsum board.
  • Raise and lower the windows in each room, open and close all doors. Do they fit squarely without binding?
  • Outside the house, check the bottom corners of the windows and doors. Do cracks run diagonally, along mortar joints in the brick veneer? Are the caulk joints pulling apart?
  • Check the exposed concrete at the base of the house for cracks. If there are only small cracks, they may be non-structural, but they may also be the first indication of trouble to come. Call a foundation repair professional to make an inspection for you.
  • If possible, check the house after or during a rain. Does water stand in puddles near the house? Proper drainage is essential. Roof leaks when roof material is in good shape. Are trees planted near the house? Remember the guideline. A tree should be as far away from the house as its mature height. Check gutters and downspouts. Do they empty onto a splash block? And does the roof runoff drain away from the house?

    Problems like these should not be taken lightly. Cracks in the interior walls are unsightly and reduce the value of your house. Cracks in the brick walls admit wind and rain that damage the sheathing insulation and interior wall. Poorly fitted windowsills and doors let in outside air and result in high utility bills. Roof leaks damage the wooden beams, insulation, interior walls and ceiling, and electrical wiring. Shifting of the soil foundation may cause gas and water lines to loosen or bend, creating unsafe conditions and fire hazards.

    Save your investment and keep your family safe.



    SCOOP THE POOP

    Help stop pointless poo-llution!You can make a difference! Besides being unpleasant to the nose and eyes, pet waste is an environmental pollutant that can seriously harm Texas waterways. A quick rain shower is all it takes to transfer dog droppings from the ground and into our streams, lakes, rivers, and ultimately, the Galveston Bay. Pet waste carries bacteria, viruses, and parasites that threaten the health of humans and wildlife. By scooping the poop you are removing harmful nutrients and bacteria from local waterways, keeping our citizens healthy and our yards and shoes clean.

    When left behind, pet waste on sidewalks, streets, or yards can be carried by rainwater through the storm sewer system directly into our local water bodies without any treatment. Pet waste is a major contributor of bacteria and pollution to the detriment of our water quality.

    What can you do to limit your impact?

  • Always pick up pet waste.
  • Carry disposable bags on your walk.
  • Throw away pet waste or flush it down the toilet.
  • Encourage others to pick up pet waste. Take the pledge to “scoop the poop” and do your part to reclaim the Bay:

  • I pledge to always clean up after my pet, even in my own yard.
  • I pledge to educate others about the importance of cleaning up after their pets.
  • I pledge to always carry extra doggy bags when I’m with my pet.

    “Doo” the right thing! Report illegal storm water dumping. www.clean bayous.org
