In some neighborhoods, having an HOA is part of the cost that comes with your dream home. HOAs can be helpful in that they give you support as a homeowner, but they can also be quite restricting. Especially when it comes to remodeling, Homeowners Associations can be sticklers. Many homeowners have begun roofing projects ignorant of the consequences, only to find themselves in conflict with their HOA. Fortunately, the prickly issue can be navigated if you know the steps to take.
