Roofing Policy

SOUTH COVE ROOFING POLICY
Revised October 2017

Before making any alterations or changes to the exterior of one's home, homeowners in South Cove are required to first gain approval from the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Re-roofing is an example of an alteration or change that requires such pre-approval.

There are many choices of roofing colors and materials on the market. However, not all are suitable for South Cove. For example, some colors, shapes or thicknesses would not be considered as harmonious with the prevailing products and colors in use here.

When first built, South Cove’s roofs were all cedar shake.  That is our legacy material and is still considered as appropriate. However, over time cedar became quite expensive as composite materials were improving in quality and visual appeal. In the late 1980's composites began to be allowed as an alternative to cedar shake. But, only the better quality "architectural" and "designer" composites were approved because their heavier profile and distribution of color granules more effectively mimicked shakes. And of those materials, only those in colors that imitated weathered cedar were allowed.

In responding to evolving tastes, the list of approved roofing products shown below has now been expanded to include additional colors. The following selections from the five most often used brands available in our region. When submitting an ACC request form, a selection from the list below will be approved.

Before installing any new roof, please submit an Architectural Review Request Form and obtain authorization from the South Cove ARC.
