Annual Paint Survey Criteria

Efforts are made to conduct the annual paint survey in the winter months to allow homeownders time to budget for paint expenses. Paint is reviewed on the basis of street aesthetics and the effect on property values based on the condition of a home’s paint and its curb appeal. 

Criteria is based on, but not limited to the following:

  • Peeling and Chipping
  • Fading
  • Oil spotting
  • Thinning and bleed through, which can include a previous paint color showing through or the grain of the wood
  • Erosion or Splash back
  • Bleaching
  • Damaged or rotting or warping trim boards or siding
  • Discoloration

The areas of the home that are focused on during the evaluation are:

  • All siding, trim and accent areas that are painted (i.e., front door, shutters, porch railings, etc.)
  • Gutters, downspouts, chimneys, accent vents, etc.
  • Window Trim
  • The Rooflines on the front and sides of home
  • Areas near the rooflines where splash back occurs
  • Sides of the home subject to extreme sun exposure

All paint colors must be approved by the Architectural Committee even if painting the same colors

To request paint color approval, go to the Home Improvement Forms and select the Paint form from the dropdown. Be sure to submit both the manufacturer and the color name and color number.

The Architectural Committee meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Please have all materials submitted for Committee review no later than noon of the Friday preceding the meeting.
