HOA, Celina homeowner battle over fines for roof color | wfaa.com Dallas - Fort Worth: The shingles had to be a color called "weathered wood," and had to be approved by the HOA architectural committee. They thought they'd jumped through those hoops, hired a contractor, and work began.
Then, there was a knock on the door. It was the roof police.
David Hawkes said the president of the homeowners association and the HOA's management company actually told them to stop construction.
"'The roof you're putting on is not going to match,'" Hawkes recalled the pair saying. "'It's not going to match the code. It's not going to be accepted here.'"
Privatopia's roof police will undoubtedly be using satellite imagery and spectrum analysis to ensure all rooftops are a uniform color lest property values be destroyed by a slightly off color roof.
