Water Detectors & Alarms help protect your Condo

Over the past year the Windsor has experienced a couple of water leaks at different units in the building. Two of them happened when the occupants weren’t in the unit. They were brought to the attention of the front desk when the condo below noticed water leaking from there bathroom ceiling.

Water leaks

It’s been approximately 14 years since the Windsor was renovated from the Hobron Hotel, and new fixtures were installed in all the units. We are starting to see some of the faucets and toilets start to fail or leak. When this happens, depending on if your home or not, could be the difference between cleaning up a little water on the floor or having to have a water and flood company come out and clean up your entire condo and the unit below of excessive water.

This could be a very expensive restoration bill and involve insurance companies with deductibles and increased premiums.

It was brought up at our last board meeting taht condo owners install these water leak alarms so that when water hits these alarms, they will sound off so you take care of it right away.

The Windsor Waikiki and the entire Board of Directors would like to recommend that owners purchase flood alarms and install them behind the toilets and under the sinks in the bathrooms and kitchens. This will add some security so that if we do have a water leak you will be notified by loud buzzing noise from these alarms. They are very inexpensive and a set of 6 will run you under $50.

These can be purchased locally at Home Depot, Lowes department store or City Mill. You can also find them on Amazon with a large selection for you to choose from and various prices listed as “Water Detectors & Alarms”

Annual homeowners meeting on the sky Terrace

This year’s annual homeowners association meeting will be held on August 17th at 7 p.m. at the Windsors Sky Terrace located on the roof. We are asking that all homeowners who reside at the Windsor or live in the Waikiki / Honolulu area please attend. Last year’s annual meeting was delayed by 30 minutes so that we could contact some of the owners who lived in the building to make quorum.

At this year’s meeting we will be going over some of the projects and accomplishments over the last year and 3 board member positions are available and we will be holding elections for director positions. If you are an owner here at the Windsor and would like to serve as a director on the board you can contact the front desk and submit your application and short resume. Nominations for candidates may also be made from the floor at the annual meeting.

Please be aware that the Sky Terrace will be closed off to “owners only” during this annual meeting which starts at 7 p.m. and is usually completed by about 8:30. Registration begins at 6:30 which also includes pupus and refreshments.

So come out and meet some of your neighbors and get involved.

Speed limit in the Windsor garage is 5 Mph

 

 

Over the past couple of months we have received several complaints regarding some of the residents driving through the parking structure at a faster rate than what is posted. The speed limit through the garage is 5 miles per hour and signs are posted throughout the garage and parking area. For the safety and consideration of everyone please make sure you follow the posted speed limits. Several of the corners appear to have blind spots so we ask that you drive with special attention to them.

Also when you exit the driveway and head out onto the road we have recently added stop signs to remind you to be careful of pedestrians that walk by the Windsor. We would like to ask you to please be considerate and slow down while entering and exiting the parking lot.

 

 

 

 

 

BBQ – Cleaning up after yourself

Clean your dirty grillBBQ Etiquette

Aloha Windsor residence, we are truly blessed to have 3 high-quality amazing BBQ’s located on property. One is located at the pool level, another one located on the fifth floor near the Jacuzzi and of course everyone’s favorite on the Sky Terrace near the wet bar.

It is been brought to our attention that several guests have not been properly cleaning some of the excess food off the grill after use. We Supply a scouring brush next to all the BBQ’s so that you could help the next person by scrubbing off some of your excess food and barbecue sauce. Our maintenance team cleans the grills every night and they do a great job but we need to give a little courtesy to the fellow cooks after your completed your meal.

We hope you continue to enjoy this amazing amenity along with the awesome views
