WHITE ROOFING PRODUCTS REQUIRE ECIA APPROVAL BEFORE APPLICATION

 

The ECIA would like to remind all homeowners that due to the fact that Article II, Section 5 of the Eldorado Covenants prohibits roofs with “highly reflective or glare producing materials”, but there are new energy efficient, but reflective white roof coatings on the market, the ECIA Board approved of an update to the newly revised Eldorado Guidelines that addresses the use of such materials. Section 6.2.4.1 is detailed as follows:

6.2.4.1. White roofing products shall require completion and submission of the Architecture Plan form to the ECIA for review. The ECIA will then schedule a time to come meet with the homeowner on their lot to determine if the horizontal surfaces of the roof will be visible to any neighbors. If there is no visibility, the application will be approved with the stipulation that on any vertical surfaces of the roof such as the inside of the parapets and the canales the tan version of the product or paint that matches the home’s stucco color shall be used. When using any bright white roofing product for a roof repair it shall only be used where it is not visible to your neighbors. The tan color of the product shall be used on any vertical surfaces, parapets or canales.

Should you want to apply a white silicone, or other reflective roofing project, the Guidelines requires that resident come to the ECIA, complete the necessary paper work, and receive the ECIAs’ approval before any roof work is done. If residents have questions, please call Mark Young at the ECIA at 466-4228 or e-mail him at myoung@hoamco.com Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
