Your local HOA, like any other, will likely have tight rules and regulations regarding how to maintain the neighborhood clean. This includes your home’s style and construction, siding, and even the color of your roof shingles. If you want to alter the color of your roof during a replacement, you must first seek your HOA’s approval. STARR Roofing & Gutters, a leading roof maintenance provider, shares more on how you can do this.
Why Is Seeking HOA Approval Necessary?
Getting your HOA’s clearance is important, but bear in mind that if the correct protocol isn’t followed, you risk receiving fines. When things go worse, you may find yourself in the middle of a broader court struggle. Nonetheless, HOAs are available to assist in the preservation of your home’s worth.
How to Get Your Preferred Roof Color Approved
Contact your HOA’s management company to determine if there is an approved list of roofing colors, materials, or patterns. Selecting an option that has already been approved by the board will undoubtedly expedite the process. If there is no list, you must create a case for the committee to approve the roof color, material, or pattern you have chosen. Bear in mind that the HOA exists to safeguard the value of your house; therefore, be patient and operate within their comfort zone.
Choosing Your Roofing’s Color
Inquiring with your board’s office regarding pre-approved roofing colors or whether you are free to choose whatever color you choose will be helpful even if you engage with a roofing and gutter installation contractor who has previous experience working with homeowners associations. Inquire as to whether or if they have any color preferences.
Choosing colors for your home should be done in a way that both enhances its appearance and allows you to express your individuality. To stand out from the rest of the houses in your neighborhood, you want your house to be different, but not too unusual.
Try to blend in with the rest of the houses on your street as much as possible so that your house doesn’t stand out too much. Choosing a new color for your roof is an excellent way to improve the aesthetics of your house while also increasing its resale value.
