HOOKSETT - A roof collapse in Hooksett left 60 people homeless this winter when the snow mound became too much for the building to bear.
The roof on 126 Mammoth Road appears new, but after months of insurance battles and dealing with the elements, everyone’s patience is running out.
"It’s been a real nightmare trying to get the books as to how much they're spending,” Kevin Shaughnessy said, who owns one unit in the building.
Shaughnessy told NH1 News one of the biggest problems the property management company has is money.
The President of Sequel agrees.
"More damage was uncovered after we moved forward," Peter Dolloff said. "And there was additional loss after the two subsequent rain events.”
Shaughnessy said the rain events left his apartment with water damage.
There was also a disagreement about how much the damage cost and what the insurance would cover.
"Great minds can come up with different numbers on a project like this so we had two professional adjusters but they had different opinions on what the values would be,” Dolloff said.
Dolloff told NH1 News that the total cost is approaching three-quarters of a million dollars.
After months of watching the project develop, there is still no word on when owners can move tenants back.
The tension has started to rise among owners.
"We started to ask the tough questions, and we didn’t get any answers and then got sued for slander and libel,” said Gary Woscyna, an ex-board member, describing how difficult it is to work with Sequel.
Owners are paying for the electricity to stay on while repairs are being completed.
Shaughnessy said the workers are running up a hefty bill between the lights on and the ac unit running. He predicts a large loan will have to be taken out to finish the job and the burden distributed.
"If the 150 other unit owners think they are off the hook, they're not,” Shaughnessy said.
The property managers of Sequel are holding a meeting for residents at the Puritan Backroom on Thursday in Manchester from 6 to 8 p.m.
After speaking with Dolloff, he said he’s hoping the project will be done in another 6 weeks - that is if the insurance company cooperates.
