The Big 6

  1. Asphalt & parking structures
  2. Roof
  3. Windows
  4. Doors
  5. Siding
  6. Utility & mechanical

These 6 items make up over 50% of the value of the common property of a Corporation. Each Big Six item accounts as the largest capital expenditure a Corporation will ever pay for. If they are not estimated properly and because they do involve bigger numbers they can create bigger problems with a Corporation’s financial management.
Consequently, Big Six items are usually responsible for triggering Special Assessments. Rather than Special Assessing for only the shortfall, Corporations will typically assess for the full value of a Big Six component, choosing instead to leave the existing Reserve Fund intact.
