There are numerous factors to consider when selecting a new roof color. Is it the correct shade for your home? Are you utilizing the highest-quality materials? Is it going to last a long time? Additionally, you must evaluate whether your HOA will allow it.
Before you hire exterior renovations contractors to paint your home or install that stunning new roof, read this guide to ensure you’re complying with your HOA’s requirements.
Start by retrieving the CC&Rs (covenants, conditions and restrictions). You probably got these when you closed on your house. Don’t worry, you only need to read the rules pertaining to property limits. This should help you understand what is acceptable in your community.
Ask your neighborhood’s property management company about the current approval process. Ask them to explain the process and how long it will take to get approved. Find out what forms are needed and where to get them.
Ask if there are pre-approved colors to use or if you can choose your own. Ask them for advice on color selection based on their experience. Their response may be more helpful than any written requirements in getting your proposals approved. Asking is worth your time.
You may think that having pre-approved colors simplifies the process. So much for it. In some cases, even if a color is pre-approved, it may not be authorized for your home if it matches your neighbors. Look around to make sure your colors don’t match another nearby home.
If you are choosing colors on your own, aim for hues that show your personality or give your home a unique flair, but don’t stray too far from the local average. The optimal color scheme pops out while remaining inconspicuous. This will help you acquire your HOA approval for your designs if you keep them in mind when choosing colors.
Remember to Follow HOA Rules
Working with your HOA can be unpleasant, especially when it comes to a costly project like roof replacement and painting. It’s your house, and you may paint it however you like. That’s fair, yet when you moved in, you agreed to follow the HOA’s guidelines. If you don’t, you’ll run into issues and maybe face legal action.
It’s essential to follow these rules and hire a roofer who is familiar with HOAs. Ask your HOA if they have a recommended roofer they can recommend.
Painting your roof should be easy if you work closely with your HOA. Follow your guide’s rules. You can get a new roof with minimal hassle.
