A lot of condo property associations

don’t allow the residents to go on the roof of the condo buildings for several reasons. Keeping someone from tossing a lit cigarette butt on the roof surface is one of those reasons. Unfortunately EDPM (rubber) is not melt proof. Another thing to keep in mind is that a number of prospective condo buyers make the mistake of not having a home inspection because they are told by the real estate agents that they don’t have to worry about the common property. This is a misleading statement because as a condo owner you will be paying a monthly maintenance fee that will go up when common property issues crop up.
