As you plan out your roof replacement project, there are a lot of factors to consider. But if you live in an HOA community, you’ll need to agree to the local rules and regulations about the appearance of your home. Aside from getting the right roofing materials and hiring a good contractor, you’ll also need to run your project through them for approval. Choosing to go through your project without their approval can prove consequential on your part as you’ll be facing several legal problems throughout the roofing process.
What to Expect When Seeking HOA Approval
In most HOA communities, it’s required to seek approval for nearly any type of major home remodeling project. You’ll usually need to present the plans on how you’ll update the appearance and structural integrity of your roof, not all HOA communities may have the same requirements for approval. Make sure to check on the documented agreement between you and your HOA and find out any rules relating to roof replacement.
Whether you’re planning a roof repair or replacement project, the plans must also be submitted to your local HOA board for approval. Most HOA communities will have similar roof requirements such as the colors, style, and even the type of materials used. They must be approved by the local HOA board before proceeding with the construction.
Seeking Approval is Necessary
Having approval from your local HOA lets you avoid legal problems since your project already abides by its Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs). HOA approval also speeds up the installation process and you’ll also add more value to your home’s real estate! Just make sure that you present the necessary paperwork as soon as the early stages of your roofing project. This is to ensure that your project gets approved quickly before the damage spreads and you’re forced to pay for more repairs.
