Balconies Ready to Collapse – Paul Wilk

LOGO ABalconies Ready to Collapse

Thank you to all of the current Board Members & other concerned residents of the Aquarius Condo for finally taking a positive stand & working towards actually doing what is badly needed to keep the Aquarius from the real possibility of being condemned & declared unlivable by the Broward Country Building Inspectors.

You can see by the pictures that the balcony above me is unsafe & ready to fall down. Notice the rusted rebar throughout. If we as a community do not stand together & approve the assessment & re-elect the current board there will surely be consequences that will cause the value of all of our units to continue to drastically decline.

However, if we can all find the strength & courage to move forward then we all will reap the benefits of an updated beautiful building to enjoy for many years as well as a tremendous financial increase in value & equity. How would you like to pay $50K to get back $150K? Sounds like a no-brainer to me. That is the reality of moving forward on the enhanced upgraded renovation with the new T-Shaped pool, glass balconies, BBQ area & all the other goodies that come with only a 10% additional increase. The future of the Aquarius is in your hands so please choose wisely.

    1.     In somecases, the reinforcing bar has corroded and following the spalling of theconcrete cover, it has been separated from the actual structure. In otherlocations, the defects manifest themselves in variety of forms. Relevantindicators and defects which might be observed include cracking, scaling (localflaking of peeling of the surface portion of hardened concrete), spalling(concrete fragments, usually detached from the body of the concrete) This iswhat Mr.P.Wilk ,apt.204N demonstrated,rust staining (brown or rust color stains), weathering (changes in properties,such as color, texture or strength), and leakage through joints (generallywater, but possibly contaminated with chloride and other substances), among manyindicators.  Reinforced-concretestructures in the marine environment often deteriorate in the early stages of theirservice life. UNFORTUNATELY IT IS INETITABLE,BUT REPAIRABLE with regularinspection and maintenance. So,what we have to do:follow recommendations(seeact  Mr.G.Batista,January8,2016) and fix them.2.      The Boardtry to scare to dead the owners using  termin “compressivestrength” of concrete.Yes,it is very important indicator,but not in case of balconies.Compressive strength ofconcrete is used as a structural design criterion   as ageneral indicator of conctete quality for support elements(column,beams,etc)Balconies are not support elements!!! Theyare consoule. Balconies are not subject to compress load! Actually they areextension of the floor of the appartments.                                                                                                                   Mark Farber,apt.1503N.
