Seeking HOA Approval for Your New Gutters: Is It Required?

You need to cover many bases when planning a gutter replacement project. Before you get into any of them, however, you’ll want to make sure you seek the approval of your local homeowner’s association (HOA) first. 

Seeking HOA Approval

How Does Your HOA Improve Your Neighborhood?

One of your local HOA’s main goals is to improve and uphold the property values of their community. This is done by holding each homeowner to the same set of standards as outlined in the covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs). That means your home’s architecture will likely have certain design guidelines on what you can do to its interior or exterior. This includes color, height and even the type of gutters. 

Why Should You Get Pre-Approval First?

Some HOAs have this requirement as it may affect the appearance of your home’s exterior. But they’ll usually approve any type of exterior changes if it won’t affect its visual aesthetic. When it comes to replacing your gutters, it won’t normally affect your home’s aesthetic as long as you choose the same material or style. But if you also plan on hiring a roofing company to replace your roof, however, this may require additional approval from your HOA. This is only to ensure that the completed project meets its standards and complies with the CC&Rs. 

Keep in mind that getting the approval can slightly differ for each HOA. Make sure to contact your local HOA, and get to know their process for requesting approval in changing the interior or exterior of your home. Expect preparing for a project presentation or proposal form that provides the details of what you’ll renovate in your home. They’ll either approve, deny or, sometimes, conditionally approve your project by giving restrictions on material or color choices.
