Condominium Owner HOA Ignores Dublin Terrace Leaky Roof Repair Requests


DENVER – Jennifer Maddox said it was over due to a condominium roof leak that had been left unrepaired for nearly two years.

He said he had repeatedly notified HOA of the leak and that the association was pulling his foot.

In March 2018, Maddox purchased the 13th Dublin Terrace penthouse unit near Josephine.

He said when it rains or rains, water starts dripping into his living room.

“I just want this fixed,” he said.

Maddox said he turned to Denver7 when his requests for help fell on deaf ears.

“For me, they have the option that if it’s snowing, I’ll climb the ladder with a snow shovel and pull the snow down six floors,” he said.

He said he was initially told to put a tarp over the leak near the skylight.

“When I put down the tarpaulin, the wind lifted it up and it just lifted up and it was awesome,” he said.

So he gave up the Tarp

Not only did water fall from the ceiling on Thursday

“We’re eating Thanksgiving dinner here and it’s pouring and this piece is just falling off, so I sent an email at 10:00 at night saying I had to do something against my roof before the whole ceiling would collapse,” he said.

Maddox said he received an email from the HOA in response suggesting he step back and look at the reality of the situation.

The email wrote, “You bought a unit in a building with a defective roof. You bought a unit in a building whose HOA has very little money and you bought a building that was managed by an incompetent manager.”

He then goes on to say, “the board is aware of your problems and is actively trying to resolve the issue.”

The message called the email harassing.

This is controversial.

“It’s not harassment, snow is coming here again. Panic. Snow is coming again. It’s getting worse and getting worse,” she said.

A HOA spokesman told Denver7 they had no money to replace the roof.

He said the six-story building has 51 units.

Asked how much it could cost to replace the roof, he said, “we don’t know.”

Asked if there is an estimated range, he said $ 100,000 to $ 300,000.

The MP said they were trying to figure out how to patch the leaks in the coming weeks and maybe replace the roof next summer.

Maddox said he just wants to make sure he doesn’t have to deal with structural damage and mold care until then.
