Who Should Cover the Cost of HOA Roofing Services?

Sep / 16 / 2019

There is always a high demand for HOA roofing services in San Diego performed by the city’s leading roofing contractors. But when it comes to scheduling and paying for roofing services for a Homeowners’ Association, who takes responsibility? In this article, the leading San Diego HOA roofing contractor will try to shed some light on the matter.

Can HOA make you replace roof?

The answer to this question depends on your role: are you a tenant or a landlord? If you are renting your house or apartment, it is the landlord’s responsibility to perform roof replacement. 

However, you are likely to be under obligation to report any damage or problems with the roof in accordance with the lease agreement and terms of the lease. That way, the person or persons responsible can tend to the issue before it escalates and results in more serious damage, higher repair or replacement costs and risk of liability.

Does HOA cover roof?

Whether you own or rent a piece of property within a community, the Homeowners’ Association is likely to charge you a monthly HOA fee. The purpose of paying these fees is to contribute to the maintenance and ongoing improvements of the property as a whole. The specific reasons for the fee are usually stipulated in the HOA agreement’s terms and conditions. Sometimes, these include capital improvements which concern the roofing, namely: roof repair, replacement and maintenance.

If that is the case, any issue with the roofing should be reported to the HOA administration at the earliest convenience. They are supposed to take over and delegate the task of inspecting the damage to the roof to a roofing contractor whose job is to recommend the best course of action accordingly, as well as estimate the roof repair costs.

There is a possibility that the HOA administration might not have sufficient funds to perform the roof repair at that time. Since most roof repairs are urgent, the tenants and owners affected by the issue might then be asked to pay for the roof repair service until a change in financial circumstances. Sometimes, HOA might decide to replace the entire roof in case of extensive damage that affects multiple tenants/owners.

Does HOA pay for roof repairs?

It depends on the specifics of the HOA agreement. Namely, if the agreement stipulates that any issues with the roofing of the property are not covered, it is the tenants/landlords that need to pay for repair services. 

However, in case of damage caused by a natural disaster, insurance may cover the cost of roof repair.  

What are some reasons for roof repair?

Here are the common reasons which may indicate that putting off roof repair is no longer an option:

  • Leaks and other forms of water damage
  • Signs of mold in the attic
  • Torn/missing/lifted roof shingles
  • Cracks in flat roofing
  • Damaged flashing
  • Buckled/sagging roof deck
