The Basics of Roof Replacement in an HOA Community

The Basics of Roof Replacement in an HOA Community

There are a lot of things you need to consider when planning a roof replacement project, from choosing the roofing material that fits your home’s architectural style to finding the right contractor for the job. Another thing you need to look into is whether or not your homeowners’ association (HOA) will approve this home improvement.

HOA Community

Why Get Your Roof Replacement Project Approved?

Before you shop for roofing materials, make sure you get your roof replacement project approved by the HOA. Here are some of the reasons you should do so:

  • Uniformity 
    The HOA is responsible for ensuring harmony and uniformity when it comes to the appearance of the entire neighborhood. Together with keeping real estate values intact, homes with similar architectural styles give the whole community a specific look and feel.

  • Adherence to HOA Rules and Regulations 
    Upon moving into a neighborhood managed by an HOA, you are bound by their covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs). Depending on the leniency of the HOA, failure to comply can result in fines and even legal action. Be sure to review them before tackling roof repair, siding replacement or any major home improvement.

  • Fast and Easy Installation 
    Replacing your old roof involves many steps. Securing HOA approval before you choose roofing materials ensures a hassle-free completion. Otherwise, the work could be halted, dismantled and made to do over.

Tips to Keep in Mind When Working With Your HOA

Careful planning is imperative when working with your HOA for your roof replacement project. If you have questions or clarifications about the CC&Rs, don’t hesitate to consult your HOA. Be sure to fill out all the required forms before you proceed with any roofing work. You also have to be willing to wait for your proposal to be approved. After all, most HOAs are run by volunteers who are busy with their families and jobs.
