How to Build Your Deck in a HOA Community

If you live in an homeowners association (HOA) community, then you’re probably familiar with their set of rules and regulations that you should follow to ensure the local property value doesn’t get affected. That means you can’t just have a home renovation project without their approval. Otherwise, you’ll be forced to pay fines or even have to stop the project altogether. The goal of this is to keep residents from unknowingly devaluing the area’s property.

Your local HOA will usually handle the architectural changes over all the homes in their community, so you can’t just do a remodeling project without letting them know what you’re planning to do. 

Preparing Your Application

If you’re planning any type of home renovation project, such as a deck installation, most HOAs will usually require you to get their approval. This comes before you get building permits from your area, so you need to get in touch with your local HOA first to know what the requirements are for approving your project. 

Most HOA applications for approval will require you to give full details of the remodeling project. Usually, the details should be filled out in your HOA’s application form and submitted to the architectural review board or a similar entity that handles the approval of remodeling projects. If you’re planning to build a deck, the board will make sure that the details of your project follow their architectural guidelines before approval.

Hire a Trustworthy Contractor

It also helps to hire professional contractors who have a good reputation in your local community. This makes it easier to build your deck as they’re already familiar with the rules and regulations of your local HOA. They’ll also handle the application process for the needed building permits for your project, but before the project even commences, you need to wait until your HOA finishes reviewing your application first!

The approval of your deck installation will vary for each HOA community, so it can sometimes be complicated and time-consuming. But it’s often needed to uphold the ideals and guidelines that make your community a great place to live.
