3 Reasons Your New Roof Needs HOA Approval
November 17, 2021 by surefire
Homeowners associations or HOAs are governing bodies found within common-interest communities. When you live in an HOA, you need to abide by the rules and regulations established by the board, or else you will run into a myriad of problems. In the case of replacing your residential roofing, it is usually non-negotiable.
1. It keeps the neighborhood looking uniform.
One of the responsibilities of the HOA is to ensure that the neighborhood keeps a harmonious appearance. This is to retain the value of the real estate properties as well as furnish the community with a particular look and feel. If you are in the process of roof replacement, review the bylaws instated by the HOA to make sure your roof type, shingle color, and sheathing material are within those guidelines.
2. It prevents costly fines or, in some cases, lawsuits.
When you move into a neighborhood regulated by a homeowners association, you are agreeing to diligently follow their Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs). Failure to comply with these guidelines, especially when you are replacing a shingles roof, for example, may result in serious consequences. Depending on the HOA board, you can be slapped with a costly fine, prohibited from using community facilities, or worse, be liable for lawsuits against your property owner.
3. It speeds up the installation process.
There are many steps involved in replacing a roof. If you fail to get approval from the HOA board at the beginning of the replacement process and a representative finds out about it, you might have to postpone the installation indefinitely. So be sure to prepare for it before starting the construction.
