Article XI, Section 1(j) of the bylaws requires wall to wall carpeting and padding in all units except in the kitchen and bathrooms. This means that you cannot install hardwood floors in the living room, dining room, hallway or bedrooms. The Board is willing to grant a waiver of this restriction to residents living in A level units because nobody lives below them. Hardwood floors are prohibited because the noise transmission between units at Gray’s Pointe is significant. If you install hardwood floors, the Board of Directors has the right to order that they be removed at your expense. The Board can enforce this restriction through legal action, if necessary, especially if your improvement negatively impacts the person below you.
