When determining when and how to move forward with painting your home, you need to consider how the whole house will look including the color of your roof, main body of the house, the trim, gutters, color of the front door as well as the garage door.
The main portion of all Newport Cove houses are stucco and should be painted with a paint specifically for stucco.
Stucco painting is one of the greatest things you can do to protect the masonry on your home. Not only does it refresh the look of your home, but it actually shields the exterior of your home from water damage as well.
Prevent Moisture Damage on your Home
You’ve probably noticed that when it rains, the water causes discoloration and graying of the stucco from being moist. That’s actually rain water and moisture getting inside the natural grooves and cracks of the stucco. Stucco painting can help seal all those hairline fractures and cracks and prevent future splitting of the masonry.
On some homes, you may notice water stains coming down from windows and other wood trim areas onto the stucco surface. This is caused from years of water running down the stucco. When you paint stucco, it seals all the nooks and crannies in the wall. Thus, staining has a tendency to just slide down the surface of the coated stucco and harmlessly absorb into the ground.
Looks that will Last
Think of an investment in having your home painted as an investment in the foundation of your home. What better investment could you make?
ACB Procedures for painting
Prior to beginning any exterior improvements, you will need to consider if you, the homeowner, or a contractor will be doing the work.
Although most jobs will be encouraged to be done by a contractor, the homeowner is allowed do the work themselves. If the homeowner is taking on the task, the homeowner is responsible for any and all insurance matters if someone is injured in the job.
In the planning stage, the homeowner should work with their GC to determine the scope of the job. A design specification should outline the job, including which areas are to be painted and which color will be used.
There is a specific ACB form used when requesting to paint their house
If the homeowner determines they will use a GC (General Contractor), the contractor is required to provide both their contractor’s license and the contractor’s proof of insurance.
Requesting ACB approval to start project
With the planning stage completed, the homeowner can now submit the completed ACB request form along with the contractor’s license and insurance and design specifications to the ACB committee for review. We ask for duplication of all documents.
The ACB will then review all plans to ensure all paperwork is included.
After the ACB has approved your plans, you may proceed with the improvement.
One set of signed documents will be returned to you for your records while the other set of plans will be recorded by the ACB for reference.
Completion of project
Once the job is completed, the homeowner needs to submit a signed filled out completion form to the ACB. These results will then to filed in the small club house for reference.
