During the 2017 hailstorm Brookwood Green took a total loss on the roofs and they were all replaced. When this was done the attic ventilation was deleted. The insurance company paid to have the attic ventilation restored. Carol Garrison the property manager hired by the association stated that this was not needed and argued her unit doesn’t have an attic vent. You can see from the pictures below she has an attic vent. Since the attic vents were not replaced after the storm, many homeowners have developed mold and much higher temperatures in their units. This can lead to health issues as well as material deterioration. One other thing you will notice is the quality of shingles on her roof. These are called dimensional shingles. They are a much higher quality than the 3 tab shingles she chose for the other homeowners of Brookwood Green. The brand of shingles is Tamko and the manufacturer’s specifications are below. Three tab shingles have a much lower wind warranty than dimensional shingles which have a wind warranty on average of 120 Mph. Why does she have a roof vent and no one else does even though the insurance paid for it? Did the homeowners vote to put a much higher quality roof on her home?

Roof Vent

As you can see it is clear there is a vent on the home of the property manager. Below is an audio clip of her saying she doesn’t have a roof vent.  You can also hear the former secretary state that the insurance only paid for shingles.  This is a false statement.  She is also pretending to be an expert on gutters and discussing how they have no control over gutters.  


The current conditions of the roofs do not meet international building code.  The property manager along with the association president have both stated that these are not needed.  Please see below IBC code.
