Ensuring Your Siding Replacement Meets HOA Guidelines

Your homeowners association is your local authority when it comes to home renovations. Its role is to ensure all houses in the neighborhood comply with construction guidelines that preserve the value of the properties in the area.

Siding Replacement

Siding greatly affects your home’s curb appeal. That is why siding replacement requires HOA approval before siding and gutter installation experts can start the work. Here are a few ways to ensure your project meets HOA guidelines.

Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions

HOA communities typically have a document called Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs). The CC&Rs consist of all the rules and requirements homeowners must follow when renovating their properties. Review this document and discuss the rules with your contractor so they know what to avoid and what to do.

Submit for Approval

HOA boards must approve your siding replacement before your siding and gutter guards installer can start the project. Without board approval, your project may be put to a halt or you may be asked to pay a hefty fine. Expect your HOA board to be swamped with approval requests, especially during spring, so submit your requirements early to avoid delays in your project.

Hire a Preapproved Contractor

HOA boards usually have a list of preapproved contractors who have served homes in your neighborhood and are familiar with your CC&Rs. You can choose from this pool of preapproved contractors. But if you’re looking to hire a contractor outside of this group, make sure they’re familiar with your CC&Rs and can help you obtain permits from your local municipality and HOA.

Notify Your Neighbors

The noise and mess from construction can distress your neighbors, so make sure to inform them about your siding replacement ahead of time. Your HOA might not communicate formally with your neighbors about your project, so take the initiative to talk to your neighbors about your upcoming project.
