Jun 8, 2014 - Warning – Old Windows

Dear Unit Owners and Residents,

Many unit owners still have the original windows and a number of them have a weighting system that has worn out and failed.

If the window is closed when it fails, you will notice that it takes tremendous effort to open.

If the window is open when it fails, the open portion will slam down. This will not usually crack the window itself, but it does pose a danger to fingers and pets that may be in the window’s way when it drops down.

Please take care to ensure that if your window’s weights give way, there is something bracing them from causing injury or damage.

If you would like information on replacing your windows, please contact the board or management for vendors that other owners have successfully used.

Thank you,
The Pickering North Condominium Association
