If you’re a homeowner and you want to paint the exterior of your house, it’s essential to consider the rules and regulations of your homeowner’s association (HOA) before picking up that paintbrush and getting to work! While adding a fresh coat of paint can enhance your home’s curb appeal and value, it’s crucial to ensure that you’re complying with your HOA to avoid conflicts or fines. That said, keep reading to learn about three key things you should remember if you’re hoping to transform your home within an HOA community.  

1. Know What’s Allowed

Before diving into your painting project, you should carefully review your HOA’s rules and regulations regarding exterior modifications. Many HOAs have strict guidelines governing exterior painting. You might only be allowed to use certain color schemes, finishes, or even specific brands. As you plan your project, be sure to review any relevant HOA rules and guidelines; while some may seem weird or arbitrary, they help the neighborhood to feel more harmonious and organized in the grand scheme of things!

2. Ask for Permission Beforehand

You’ll want to ask your HOA for permission before the painting can commence; they’ll need to review the colors you’ve chosen and make sure that everything follows their guidelines. If you begin painting without approval, or you select paint that isn’t allowed, you’ll be subject to fines—and you’ll also have to repaint, which only costs more time and money down the road. Do your research beforehand and ensure that you’re going through all the proper channels so that you don’t cause any conflicts.

3. Consider Other Homes Around Yours

You may think that your HOA will want you to use the exact same color schemes as your neighbors, but this isn’t the case; while some level of similarity is required, they don’t want every single house to look exactly alike. This is why it’s wise to carefully consider the schemes that your neighbors have chosen and to do your best to complement them while also marking those schemes off your own list. You’ll still have a lot of flexibility when it comes to your colors, and you’ll ensure that you aren’t duplicating anyone else.

In short, even though you’ll have to be considerate of your HOA’s guidelines when it comes to painting your home’s exterior, you still have all sorts of modern, trendy options, and it’s very easy to find a design that fits in and looks great! If you have any doubts, you shouldn’t hesitate to consult with a team of professionals about your desired results—they’ll also be sure to help you remain HOA-compliant!
