How to Get Approval for Your Roofing Project from Your HOA

Updated: Jan 31

As a homeowner, you know that you need to get approval from your Homeowners Association (HOA) before making any changes to the exterior of your home. This includes everything from painting your front door to replacing your roof. While getting approval for a new paint job is usually a pretty easy process, getting approval for a new roof can be a bit more complicated. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

1. Work with your HOA to Understand the Process

The first step in getting approval for your roofing project is to understand the process that your HOA uses for approving such projects. In some cases, you may need to submit formal paperwork and drawings while in others, a simple verbal request may suffice. Working with your HOA ahead of time will help ensure that you have all the information you need to submit a complete and accurate request.

2. Choose the Right Roofing Contractor

Once you have an understanding of the approval process, it's time to start shopping around for the right roofing contractor. Not all roofers are created equal and it's important to choose one that has experience working on projects within HOAs. A good contractor will be familiar with the approval process and will be able to help you gather any necessary documentation.

3. Be Prepared to Compromise

In some cases, your HOA may not approve your roofing project as-is. If this happens, it's important to be prepared to compromise. Work with your contractor and HOA board to find a solution that everyone can agree on. sometimes this may mean choosing a different roofing material or making a small change to the design.

Replacing your roof is a big project but with a little advance planning, it doesn't have to be stressful. By following these tips, you can increase your chances of getting HOA approval for your roofing project without any major problems.
