Homeowners in California and throughout the country understand the importance of a properly constructed roof. One man got a notice from his HOA after making repairs to the one on his home after a hail storm. The resident was told that permission was required prior to making repairs and that the shingles were the wrong color. According to the association's rules, they needed to be an earth tone color.
The resident pointed out that gray is an earth tone color, and he also cited the HOA's rules as it related to making repairs to a property. According to the association, residents are merely encouraged to ask for approval prior to fixing a roof as opposed to being required to do so. After a local media affiliate got involved, the man was finally given the chance to sell his home.
