While good home maintenance is a requirement of living in Ashburn Farm, it is important for residents to use caution and do the necessary research prior to hiring any contractor. Unfortunately, the Association has received reports of contractors greatly inflating prices for home repairs in the area. Many contractors are trustworthy and reliable; however, there is a small percentage of them who are not. It can be easy to be taken advantage of by unscrupulous contractors when it comes to both the cost of the project and the quality of workmanship.

Before signing any home maintenance contract, do some background research on the company and speak to friends or neighbors that may have experience with that contractor. Even better, get a recommendation from a neighbor or friend who was satisfied with the workmanship of a contractor. At the end of the day, be sure you are dealing with a licensed, skilled professional who is providing a competitive price for your project.

It is important to get two or more bids for any work that is more than a few hundred dollars. This ensures that the price is competitive, the contract covers the necessary work on the property, unnecessary work is not being done, and nothing is missed that will be more difficult or expensive to repair down the road.

Some common scams that contractors use have been publicized by the Better Business Bureau. These include offering a very low price or short timeframe up front. Once hired, the contractor may “find” issues that he says increase the price of the project. He may then threaten to leave the half-completed project, if he is not given additional money. Other unscrupulous contractor scams involve the contractor accepting and depositing the initial deposit, then never returning to perform any work.

The Better Business Bureau also offers the following suggestions to help homeowners avoid home improvement contractor scams:

• “Watch out for "red flags." Say no to cash-only deals, high-pressure sales tactics, high upfront payments, handshake deals without a contract, and on-site inspections. Not all “storm chasers” are con artists, but enough are that you should be cautious any time a home contractor contacts you first…especially after a natural disaster.

• Ask for references and check them out. Bad contractors will be reluctant to share this information and scammers won’t wait for you to do your homework. If you can, get references from past customers, both older references to check on the quality of the work and newer references to make sure current employees are up to the task. Check them out at bbb.org to see what other customers have experienced. And always be sure to get a written contract with the price, materials, and timeline. The more detail, the better.

• Know the law. Work with local businesses that have proper identification, licensing and insurance. Confirm that your vendor will get related permits and make sure you know who is responsible for what according to your local laws, and that your vendor is ready to comply.”

If you believe you may be dealing with a scammer, be sure to keep documentation of the entire project. Keep daily notes on the progress being made, as well as any problems that occur. Take pictures of every stage of the project. This is especially important if the work may not be visible after the project is completed (i.e., wiring, plumbing, etc.) If you are certain your contractor is being dishonest, bar him from your property and report the incident to the Better Business Bureau (703-276-0100). You may also want to contact an attorney to find out what legal remedies are available to you.

Loudoun County, VA - Official Website - Route 7/Belmont Ridge Road Interchange

Loudoun County officials announce upcoming planned nighttime lanes closures and detours to accommodate work on the Route 7/659 (Belmont Ridge Road) Interchange Project. The work is scheduled to begin the night of August 8, 2018, and continue through late October 2018, weather permitting.

During this time, motorists will be subject to single- and double-lane closures to allow for asphalt mill and pavement operations. Additionally, road closures and detours to allow for the installation of storm water crossings on eastbound and westbound Route 7. Nighttime work will begin as early as 9:00 p.m. for Route 7 eastbound and 10:00 p.m. for Route 7 westbound, including weekends, to allow for longer work durations. All nighttime work will conclude prior to peak morning traffic as coordinated and approved by the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Overall project daytime construction activities will be ongoing through this period including work on Route 659 (Belmont Ridge Road). In advance of nighttime work, electronic message boards will be posted prior to each planned lane and road closure.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution in construction zones and along the detour routes throughout the duration of the project. The Route 7 road closures and detours will be performed in three phases:

• Phase 1 – Eastbound Route 7
The first phase includes storm water crossings outside the Belmont Ridge Road ramps and spurs that are and adjacent to the Goose Creek Bridge. The detour will require using the Route 7 eastbound exit onto River Creek Parkway, north to Riverside Parkway, east to Belmont Ridge Road, and south back onto Route 7 east via the Belmont Ridge Road interchange ramp. The duration of phase 1 is expected to be approximately one and a half weeks.
• Phase 2 – Eastbound Route 7
The second phase includes storm water crossings that will be completed concurrently and are inside the Belmont Ridge Road ramps and spurs. Therefore, the detour will use the Route 7 eastbound exit onto Belmont Ridge Road, south to the intersection of future Russell Branch Parkway where traffic will make a U-turn onto Belmont Ridge Road, north and back onto Route 7 eastbound via the interchange spur. Follow law enforcement direction at the Russell Branch Parkway where traffic will make a U-turn onto Belmont Ridge Road. The duration of phase 2 is expected to be approximately three weeks.
• Phase 3 – Westbound Route 7
During installation of the three storm water crossings under Route 7 westbound, the detour will use the Route 7 westbound exit onto Belmont Ridge Road, north to Riverside Parkway, west to River Creek Parkway, south and back onto Route 7 west via the River Creek interchange spur. The duration of phase 3 to be approximately three and a half weeks.

More information, including maps of the planned lane closures and detour routes, is online at www.loudoun.gov/route7-659.

Questions about the project can be emailed to the Loudoun County Department of Transportation & Capital Infrastructure at [email protected].

Thanks to all of our volunteers who came out this morning and help clean-up our neighborhood on Ashburn Farm Beautification Day! It’s great to have all the support. The staff will be out picking up all the bags of trash filled sometime this coming week.

Automated Side Loading Trash Collection Truck.MOV

TO ALL SINGLE FAMILY HOMEOWNERS:

Effective, Monday, April 16th,2018, Patriot Disposal will begin using automated, side-load trucks for TRASH collection on the single family streets. The change is being made by Patriot Disposal because this is the most cost effective and SAFE manner to service the community.

• This change will not affect your recycling collection in any way.
• Your collection dates will continue to be Monday (trash and yard waste) and Thursday (trash and recycling).
• A video of their collection truck can be seen at the following link: https://1drv.ms/v/s!Aqi-jz7jvSQrkk8RLjZJtN-Xy4Un


WHAT HOMEOWNERS NEED TO DO:
• On collection days, place your trash container with the handles facing the house.
• Please place the container so the truck’s arm can access the can, leaving the same amount of space you leave for the mail carrier to delivery your mail.
• Please do not park cars near your container so the truck has enough space to dump your container.
• Attempt to place everything in the container with the lid closed. If your container is full, wait until the next service day or place material next to the can.
• Bulk items will still be picked up just as we do currently, it might be necessary to utilize another truck in the neighborhood.

During the first 3 – 4 weeks, Patriot Disposal staff will follow the side-load truck with one of its regular trucks in order to work out any transition concerns. Please contact Patriot Disposal at 1-703-257-7100, or the Association Office at 703-729-6680, with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your patience during this transition!
