HOA neighborhoods are well-known for two things: tight neighborly bonds and a high standard of living, aesthetically speaking. Indeed, these communities are most often gorgeous, with homes epitomizing style, grace, and beauty. Many HOAs maintain these gorgeous looks (and their correspondingly high property values) by declaring regulations about what homeowners can and cannot do to their homes, sometimes imposing fines if residents do not comply. These regulations are typically reasonable and easy to achieve, and many HOA residents tend not to mind them.
However, these regulations can also make many homeowners nervous about renovating their home, which includes installing new flooring. While you probably are excited to put your own stamp on your HOA home, you might be concerned that your flooring type of choice, be it vinyl flooring, hardwood flooring, or even something in between, could violate community standards. If you’re in this boat, there’s no need to fear; E Hardwoods & Flooring is here to set the records straight about HOAs and flooring.
The short answer: Sometimes. It all depends on your HOA’s individual rules, your location, and what kind of building you happen to live in (a condo or a standard home). Always check with your board ahead of time before planning a flooring renovation of any sort, no matter if you’re interested in engineered hardwood flooring, waterproof flooring, or something else entirely. Generally speaking, there should be regulations already set in place about what you can and cannot do.
