Roof Vents All roof mounted vents and stacks shall be painted to match the color of the roof. Care should be taken in order that the paint vendor does not use paint left over from the trim to detail the roof vents and stacks which will result in a bold contrast between the roof tile and the roof vents and stacks. Wherever possible, all stacks and vents should be located toward the rear of the Home, away from street views.
The ACB would like to see a contrast between the siding color and roof shingle. For approved roofing materials list, please refer to Appendix D: Approved Roofing Shingles.
ACB Procedures for replacing your roof
The planning stages
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 type, material and color of the roof tile
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.
Once the project is approved to move forward, the homeowner can provide a copy of the signed ACB request form to their GC. Th GC in return will need to file a permit with the County of Palm Beach.
Approval of proposed plans does not waive the necessity of obtaining any required city or county permits, obtaining a city permit does not waive the need for ACB approval.
Completion of project
Once the job is completed, the homeowner needs to submit a signed filled out completion form and a copy of the permits to the ACB. These results will then to filed in the small club house for reference.
