With colder weather approaching, Pinewood Estates is preparing the property to weather the winter temperatures. An important part of this process is making sure all water lines have been winterized in the community before the beginning of October. In order to make sure our lines stay operable this winter, we require residents to insure their heat tape is working and that the lines underneath their homes are wrapped with insulation. These steps will protect the lines from freezing and causing damage. If you need to replace heat tape and/or pipe insulation, you can purchase these at stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s or through a local plumber.
Additionally, residents are required to notify the office immediately if they find any water leaking underneath their homes. You can notify the office by email, voicemail, or a note dropped through the mail slot. Please do this as soon as possible so that we can evaluate the problem.
PLEASE BE AWARE: You must properly prepare your pipes and notify the office immediately of any leaks. If your pipes freeze due to your negligence in failing to do these things, you will be responsible for the cost of repairs, which is likely to total at least $5,000.00.
We’re truly a community at Pinewood Estates! If you have any service requests, you can submit them using the online Service Manager at www.pinewoodestatesMHC.com and we’re always happy to hear from residents at 208-522-3807 or Amy@thebostongroup.us.
