Why HOA Approval Matters for Your Gutter Replacement

Planning a gutter replacement project may not be easy, especially if you live in an HOA community. Short for a homeowner’s association, an HOA is run by an elected board of directors who get paid by the community to manage it. Their day-to-day responsibilities usually include establishing and enforcing rules and regulations dictated by their by-laws, also known as covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs). They also handle the maintenance of shared areas such as the playground, gym, park, or pool.

Gutter Replacement

It’s also within their CC&Rs how a typical home should look a certain way in the community. That means you can’t just remodel your home without their approval. But does the same apply to gutter replacement?

Their Vision for the Community

Your local HOA ultimately seeks to improve and uphold your community’s property values. They do this by ensuring that each home follows the same set of standards as outlined in their CC&Rs. This includes their architecture, which means certain design restrictions are enforced on the home’s exterior and interior. They usually indicate the material, color, and style allowed in almost every part of the home, including the gutters.

Why You Should Get HOA Approval

Most times, a pre-approval is necessary since the gutters make up a big part of your home’s exterior. Of course, it may get approved immediately if it doesn’t negatively impact the visual appeal. Meaning you can get approval if you choose the same gutter material or style. As for the process of getting the approval, it can slightly differ for each HOA. Make sure to contact the board and ask about their process for requesting approval for your gutters. They may request a presentation or proposal with all your project details. They may either approve, deny, or conditionally approve it with restrictions on the material and color choices. They might even do this with the contractor you’ll hire for the job.
