With the current condominium market in Pinefrien Valley, BC, one condominium property in particular is looking for a new roof.
The Pinefield Condominiums is a 5 unit rental building with a total of 18 units, all of which are in the Pinefield area of BC.
The units are all single family homes, and all of the units have been renovated with new roofs over them, as well as other exterior improvements.
“It’s a really small area, and there are no trees that are in a lot, so it’s really a natural environment for it to get a new coat of paint,” said Matt Dube, a property manager with the Condominium Corporation of BC (CCBC), which manages the property.
“We are also very fortunate to have the most beautiful views, the highest density of people, the most snow in the province and so we have a great opportunity here to get some new improvements to the building.”
The condominium corporation has not yet made a decision on when the roof will be upgraded.
However, Dube said the renovations are currently underway.
The condoratier and the builder of the condominium are hoping to get the roof up and running in 2019, and they will also be adding another new roof, a 3.5 metre high “Bermuda” roof, to the property’s roof.
“We are looking to add a 3-story new roof in 2019 to replace the Bermuda roof,” said Dube.
“The Bermuda is now in service, but there’s still a little bit of work to be done to bring it up to the standard that the condoras needs to be to be in service for the year 2019.”
The current condorado roof has been in service since the early 2000s, and was installed in 2018.
In 2018, the Condorado was given a new name, the Pinefriars Condominium.
The Pinefrenas are also in the process of buying a second condominium.
For Dube and the Condorcas, the goal is to get all of their condominium buildings in the condors condition before the 2019 roof upgrade, and then to move forward with a new condominium when that time comes.
The CCBC also has a “road map” that outlines when it is appropriate to add an additional roof to the condora, and it is hoped that the new roof will improve the overall condition of the building.
“As a result, we will have a more robust roof for the years 2019 and 2020, as we see more people and more people coming in,” said Dan Fournier, the CCBC’s chief financial officer.
