Roof Inspection Recommended

Fellow ARC Owners & Residents,
Hope everyone is well and you are beating the summer heat.  Wanted to pass this message from Beth and our fellow neighbor John.
Another roof inspection has netted major repairs to the siding and rake board. This is a major entry point for critters not to mention water.  We strongly encourage for every one to collaborate with their adjoining neighbor on this issue, and go a roof inspection if you have done it recently.   If there is enough interest, we could schedule Michael Smith (one of the guys who did good work to fix roofs after the wind storm) to come and look at roofs 
Please reach out to board for more info.
