Review Your HOA’s Rules
Most HOAs have a set of rules and regulations called Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs). The goal of the CC&Rs is to protect, preserve and enhance property value in the community. Typically, HOAs require members to send their siding replacement proposal to the board for approval. Different HOAs have different guidelines when it comes to siding replacement, so you should first read your CC&Rs before finalizing any plans.
Hire Reputable Contractors
If your project conforms to the HOA guidelines, then it’s time to hire siding and roof replacement professionals. Your HOA may suggest a list of accredited or recognized contractors, but you also have the choice to hire your preferred company as long as the work they perform meets your HOA guidelines. If you’re unsure about the quality of their service, it’s always a good idea to vet multiple contractors and compare their quotes and services. This way, you can determine which company is suited for the job in terms of skill and rates.
