Contractor Recommendations

One of the challenges of owning a home is the responsibility for maintaining it, often by finding good contractors.  And one of the nice things about living in a cluster of similar homes is that we can often benefit from the wisdom and experience of our neighbors.  With that in mind, the cluster has decided to publish on our website lists of recommended contractors.  The list will generally reflect contractors used by cluster members. 

The first list is in the Documents section of the website under Homeowner Information and addresses roof repair contractors. 

We welcome input from cluster members on contractors for this or other areas.  You may email suggestions to or contact any Board member or officer.
