If you live in a community governed by a homeowner’s association, then you are legally bound to adhere to its renovation rules, which typically cover siding replacement. Non-compliance with the HOA board’s remodeling guidelines could result in hefty fines, so make sure your siding project complies with these rules.
Read on as Eagle Creek Siding, LLC shares a few siding replacement tips to help ensure your project meets HOA requirements.
Read Your CC&Rs
Every HOA-managed community has its Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, which outlines what can and can’t be done to your property during renovations. The CC&Rs consist of rules that are intended to maintain a certain look within the community and ensure property values don’t decline. To ensure your siding replacement project is compliant with the rules, fully review your CC&Rs before starting any work.
Request Approval From the Board
Once you have an idea of what you want for siding replacement and you’ve checked the CC&Rs, it’s time to draft a proposal and send it to your HOA for approval. If your renovation plan meets the HOA board’s requirements, the process should be fast and simple. However, if your proposal is not approved, you should request feedback from the HOA board and ask them what specific changes must be made to meet the guidelines. This process might sound tedious, but obtaining an HOA permit prevents fines and allows you to replace your siding without any issues.
Hire a Local Contractor
You might want to consider hiring a local contractor that has already done work in your neighborhood. This way, you can work with a company that is familiar with your HOA’s rules and can help you get approval faster. Nevertheless, make sure you’re still hands-on with your project, from start to finish.
