Questions from the Listserv

NBC-CAM hosts a listserv for community association managers. The listserv is intended to create a powerful, on-line community for community management professionals to share information. Recently, some questions have been sent to the listserv. Are you able to help? Leave and answer in the comment section below and NBC-CAM staff will post your answer to the listserv.

Question 1: Dan from Florida

Our association is considering floor tile for its 3 story elevated walkways and stairs here on the gulf beach in Florida. We have an offer to install a porcelain body non skid tile on bare concrete (after removing the old urethane waterproof membrane) backed with a 25 year warranty from Laticrete. We have had minimal spalling episodes on this component. Can anyone offer their pros and cons with tile and what to expect in 2 yrs. 5 yrs. 10 yrs after installation.

Question 2: Larry from Louisiana

Does anyone have any experience with epoxy-pipe lining companies in high-rise condos?  If yes, would you please share your positive or negative experiences?

Question 3: Candee from IL

If you have a case of bed bugs in a condo building that appears to be limited to one unit do you notify the entire building?  Just curious as to what others have run into and any personal experience on this matter, would love to hear from you.

  1. To Candee – we are a high-rise condo that has had a couple of units with bedbugs. We request that any unit next to, above, below or accross the hall from the affected unit be checked for bedbugs also. Residents usually comply with this request, and we have never found a neighboring unit to have them. For privacy purposes, we do not disclose to the residents who has bedbugs, but if they start questioning their neighbors, they can figure it out by process of elimination.We have also forged a good relationship with a very reputable bedbug company, who will inspect the neighboring units at no charge to the unit owner. However, the unit owner who has bed bugs is responsible to contract for, and pay for the exterminating service.
