There have been concerns voiced about Del Mar Pacific not replacing each and every balcony with new wooden parts. When the HOA Board undertook the project, there was no master plan to replace each and every wooden component with new wood. To do so would have raised the price of the project significantly.
The consensus was to replace only wooden components that had been damaged by termites, weather and/or abuse. The large wooden beams that support the balconies, for instance, that were deemed safe, sound and free of termite damage would not be replaced. The same applies to joists that still were sturdy and free of termite damage.
Please note that the original lumber was never treated before it was installed. Most of it has survived the weather and termites very well, and may very well last another 30 years. However, the balcony decks, the railings and the pickets are being replaced with new material.
