This post is one is a series titled “What to Look for in a Replacement Window Company.” Not all San Diego replacement window companies are the same, so we wanted to do a series that would inform homeowners about what they should be looking for in a company when they decide it’s time to replace their home’s windows and doors.
HOAs. Some people love them and others hate them. Those on the “love” side view them as a way to keep their property values up, since they regulate what other homeowners in their neighborhood can and cannot do. They can keep your neighbor from painting his house hot pink or from leaving an inoperable car up on blocks in his driveway for months at a time. On the other hand, those that have contempt for HOAs look at them as restrictive and burdensome. They think they should be able to do whatever they want on their own property. Unfortunately, when you buy a home that’s part of an HOA, you are signing up to abide by their rules, like it or not.
HOAs can regulate everything from the types of bushes you plant in your front yard to the color of your front door, but they almost always will have regulations on home improvement projects that affect the exterior of the home—replacement windows included.
You might think that all replacement windows pretty much look the same, but there can be some pretty big differences from one replacement window brand to the next, and as you probably already know, HOAs tend to have some pretty specific requirements when it comes to exterior improvements. The features you choose can change the look of your windows and have bearing on whether or not your HOA approves your choice in replacement windows.
