The individual townhomes, buildings, common areas and property are
well-maintained by an on-site maintenance crew and professional service
and construction contractors, which has helped to increase and maintain the
value for the homeowners. The common areas include many mature live
oak, cypress, magnolia and other trees that provide a reasonable amount of
cool, green shade and pleasant common areas for much of the townhome
Westwind Townhomes has 326 townhomes with garages and three basic
exterior building styles - hardiplank siding, cedar siding, and red brick and
hardiplank. There are different exterior styles of the fronts of each of these
three building types, so there is variability of the frontal appearances of the
townhome buildings. The original townhomes with hardiplank siding and
cedar siding were constructed from 1980 to 1983 and feature original floor
plan designs by Trendmaker Homes. The newer townhomes with red brick
and hardiplank siding were constructed in 2001 and 2002. The townhome
sizes range from approximately 1,100 to more than 2,400 square feet.
There are U. S. Postal Service (USPS) mail boxes distributed at several covered alcoves throughout the
Westwind Townhomes property. The mail boxes are numbered for each address and a key is required to open
the boxes. Homeowners and residents are responsible for the boxes and key and should contact the USPS
directly regarding service. The closest USPS postal station is located at 12655 Whittington Drive, Houston,
Texas, 77077 and their phone number is 281-920-9337.

Association Versus Homeowner Responsibilities and Insurance
There can be some misunderstanding regarding whether a homeowner association or townhome owner is
responsible for the maintenance and repairs of different types of townhome structures and components. In
general, the townhome owner is responsible for the interior townhome repairs, some of the exterior repairs and all
required insurance coverages. The Westwind Townhome Homeowners Association is responsible for routine
maintenance, repair and replacement of the exterior siding, paint, roof shingles, brick patio fences and gates???
and common areas. The homeowner association is responsible for routine replacement of the roof shingles due
to normal wear and this is commonly done on a building by building and property-wide basis, as needed. The
homeowner is responsible for major roof repairs and replacement due to wind, storms, tornadoes and hurricanes.
An Association and Homeowner Responsibility List follows and should be reviewed carefully by each homeowner.
If you have a question about the association and homeowner responsibilities, please contact our Management
office. Copy of Association and Homeowner Responsibility List - Click here.
The homeowner should maintain insurance policies that provide sufficient coverage for the townhome, furnishings
and contents plus flood insurance, if required. Because of the frequency of large rainfall totals, storms and
hurricanes in southeast Texas, flood insurance is recommended, even if you have a mortgage and the mortgage
holder does not require you to have it based on the elevation of your townhome. Please contact a reputable
insurance agent regarding insurance policies and coverages required for a townhome unit.
