When it rains, the roof leaks.

We live in a condominium.

We bought the condo about five years earlier, and lately we had been noticing that the roof to the garage was beginning to leak. Our air conditioning unit, furnace, and our space heaters are all located in the garage. We talked to the homeowner’s association and asked about getting the garage roof repaired. We own everything inside the home. The homeowner’s association takes care of the outside including the landscaping, roofs, and siding. For two months, we had been asking about the roof on a weekly basis. It was soon going to be the wet season and we didn’t want to be stuck with a leaky and possibly destroyed roof. My husband got into the garage and moved the space heaters away from where the biggest leak was, but we couldn’t move the furnace or air conditioning unit. We were pretty sure it wasn’t going to hurt the air conditioning unit if it got wet, but we weren’t so sure about the furnace. Our furnace was responsible for giving us hot water as well as heat. If the pilot were to go out, we wouldn’t have water. Since our wet season happened when we needed the furnace, we would be in trouble if the pilot light went out. Since the homeowner’s association wasn’t helping with the roof, we called the HVAC company and asked if we would have any problem if the furnace got wet. We then called a roofer and had the roof repaired and sent the bill to the president of the homeowner’s association.
