The reserve fund is for paying for major repairs or replacing major common elements. It cannot be used for minor repairs which are supposed to be paid for out of the operating budget.
So if this is considered a major repair then the reserve fund can pay for this even though the reserve fund did not pay for the original pillars.
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
But that is not what I said. I said that the reserve fund is for a major repair so if this is a major repair then it can be used even though the reserve fund was not used to purchase the pillars. If it is a minor repair then the money cannot come out of the reserve fund because minor repairs are supposed to be covered by the operating budget but if this will amount to a major repair that is what the reserve fund is for.
