Exterior Change Requests – Carpenter Park SF HOA
The governing documents for the HOA require that owners seek approval from the HOA for any exterior changes to their lot. This is often referred to as an Architectural Request or Change.
Projects that require approval: new patio fence, patio expansion, new exterior paint color, large scale landscape addition, etc.
Any addition or change to the exterior needs to be approved by the HOA.
If you are preparing to perform an owner maintenance item – such as replacing like-for-like windows, replacing roof with matching shingles, painting front door a neutral color or seasonal landscaping – please proceed. These types of projects are not architectural changes.
If you are unsure if your project requires approval, it is always best to check first – send us an email.
what will be needed
All applications should include detailed, easy to understand drawings with a plot map outling location within your prooerty lines plus notes that include plans, elevations, construction details, colors, location, etc. as necessary to fully describe the proposed project.
NOTE: Generic statements like, “I want to install a flower bed.” can not be accepted and will delay the approval process.
obtaining a plot map
Search your address using the Wake County iMap tool. You can use the birds eye view that refreshes as long as the lot lines are included. You may need to click on “Deeds” in the bottom menu for a more detailed plot map.
The Review Committee has up to 15 days to render an official decision.
Tips for a Timely Decision:
- Read all governing documents.
- Include as many details as possible.
- Do not start any exterior changes until you receive your official approval letter.
