Roof Replacement and Your Homeowner’s Association
Updated: Dec 8, 2021
Living in a neighborhood with a homeowner’s association (HOA) has a few great benefits. But if you’re planning to have some work done on your home, it may prove a bit challenging. This is especially true in a roof replacement - a project big enough to not only affect the overall look of your home, but the neighborhood’s as well. Here's how you can get started on a roof replacement if you’re living in an HOA community.
1. Determine who’ll be responsible for the roofing project. This will depend on the area you live in and the terms of the HOA agreement. There are some communities where the HOA is actually responsible for the project, and you’ll need to fund the work until they can get the budget to do so. But in general, it’s the homeowners’ job to handle the roof replacement, which means it’s also their responsibility to ensure the project will comply with HOA covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs).
2. Seek HOA approval before starting your roof replacement. Non-compliance is not worth the trouble. There are cases, in fact, where roofing work is halted, dismantled and done over because the homeowners didn’t get the necessary approval from their local HOA beforehand. it’s not something you want to risk, so make sure to submit to your HOA a detailed proposal that covers every design aspect of your project. You can increase your chances of getting approval by ensuring the material, style and color of your replacement roof falls within HOA guidelines.
3. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. The HOA pre-approval process can be a tad lengthy and overwhelming (not to mention frustrating). Plus, there’s also a slight chance you won’t get approval at the first try. You should consider working with a trusted roof replacement expert like A1 Quality Roofing, Inc for this reason.
