There are many local events in the area celebrating the July 4th holiday. We encourage you to participate and be safe. Please remember as the July 4th Holiday approaches, fireworks are not permitted at Westmaren. You may remember that used firework debris was tossed in the recycling bin New Year’s Eve before last causing severe damage to the bin. Thankfully, a resident reported the bin on fire, and the fire department was able to extinguish it before any real damage occurred to the property. Thank you to adhering to Westmaren’s governing documents, and not using any fireworks on site.

From Westmaren's Trash Contractor -

Dear Valued Customer
In the Greater Washington, DC area, we are identifying high levels of contamination in recycling containers. Contamination is trash found in recycling and can affect the quality of recyclables. This is coming at a time when the requirements for quality are increasing. When non-recyclable items end up in recycling loads, they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash. Contaminated loads increase processing costs, which can result in contamination charges to the customer.

WARNING - FREEZING TEMPS CAN CAUSE FROZEN PIPES
PLEASE DO NOT TURN OFF THE HEAT IN YOUR UNIT - EVEN IF VACANT - KEEP THE THERMOSTAT NO LOWER THAN 55 Degrees.

• Know the location of your main water valve and how to turn off the water in the event of a broken pipe.
IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW WHERE THE MASTER MAIN VALVE IS LOCATED IN YOUR UNIT!!!!
• Open cabinet doors to allow heat into areas where pipes are located. If children are present, remove any potentially harmful chemicals from the cabinets before opening them.
• Some corner units have pipes that freeze on the exterior wall....to prevent this - let cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. If you turn on a faucet and only a trickle comes out, suspect a frozen pipe and turn the water off.
• If there is no water hazard, you may warm the pipe by opening the faucet and applying heat to the pipe using an electric heating pad, a hair dryer or portable space heater (kept 36" away from flammables) until water pressure is restored. If unable to locate, access or thaw the pipe, call a licensed plumber.
• NEVER use a blowtorch, kerosene/propane heater, charcoal stove, or open flame device to warm a frozen pipe!
• If the pipe breaks, quickly shut off the main water valve and call a licensed plumber.

An article on The Burn was run Monday, providing an update on the work taking place at the intersection of Ashburn Farm Parkway and Summerwood Circle, in the shopping center known as Ashburn Farm Village Center: https://www.theburn.com/2018/08/13/trees-cut-ashburn-farm-village-center/

Please know that Ashburn Farm Association is exhausting all avenues to ensure compliance with the non-residential covenants, and it continues to faithfully represent the concerns of the community to the owners / developers of Ashburn Farm Village Center. The Association is working to ensure that what has been cultivated in Ashburn Farm for the last 30 years continues to be an asset to the community.

While good home maintenance is a requirement of living in Ashburn Farm, it is important for residents to use caution and do the necessary research prior to hiring any contractor. Unfortunately, the Association has received reports of contractors greatly inflating prices for home repairs in the area. Many contractors are trustworthy and reliable; however, there is a small percentage of them who are not. It can be easy to be taken advantage of by unscrupulous contractors when it comes to both the cost of the project and the quality of workmanship.

Before signing any home maintenance contract, do some background research on the company and speak to friends or neighbors that may have experience with that contractor. Even better, get a recommendation from a neighbor or friend who was satisfied with the workmanship of a contractor. At the end of the day, be sure you are dealing with a licensed, skilled professional who is providing a competitive price for your project.

It is important to get two or more bids for any work that is more than a few hundred dollars. This ensures that the price is competitive, the contract covers the necessary work on the property, unnecessary work is not being done, and nothing is missed that will be more difficult or expensive to repair down the road.

Some common scams that contractors use have been publicized by the Better Business Bureau. These include offering a very low price or short timeframe up front. Once hired, the contractor may “find” issues that he says increase the price of the project. He may then threaten to leave the half-completed project, if he is not given additional money. Other unscrupulous contractor scams involve the contractor accepting and depositing the initial deposit, then never returning to perform any work.

The Better Business Bureau also offers the following suggestions to help homeowners avoid home improvement contractor scams:

• “Watch out for "red flags." Say no to cash-only deals, high-pressure sales tactics, high upfront payments, handshake deals without a contract, and on-site inspections. Not all “storm chasers” are con artists, but enough are that you should be cautious any time a home contractor contacts you first…especially after a natural disaster.

• Ask for references and check them out. Bad contractors will be reluctant to share this information and scammers won’t wait for you to do your homework. If you can, get references from past customers, both older references to check on the quality of the work and newer references to make sure current employees are up to the task. Check them out at bbb.org to see what other customers have experienced. And always be sure to get a written contract with the price, materials, and timeline. The more detail, the better.

• Know the law. Work with local businesses that have proper identification, licensing and insurance. Confirm that your vendor will get related permits and make sure you know who is responsible for what according to your local laws, and that your vendor is ready to comply.”

If you believe you may be dealing with a scammer, be sure to keep documentation of the entire project. Keep daily notes on the progress being made, as well as any problems that occur. Take pictures of every stage of the project. This is especially important if the work may not be visible after the project is completed (i.e., wiring, plumbing, etc.) If you are certain your contractor is being dishonest, bar him from your property and report the incident to the Better Business Bureau (703-276-0100). You may also want to contact an attorney to find out what legal remedies are available to you.
