Yard signs/HOA battle


#1

I’m having a problem with Home owners association writing up my upcoming Re roofs for “advertising” I have checked the HOA by laws with nothing to help. People can have their school support, lawn fertilizer, and political yard signs… suggestions please???


#2

Just add “vote for me” to the signs. To be serious though, do you have any clients that are on the HOA board? They could help.


#3

Not that I know of. I’m thinking of just not buying yard signs anymore. Its annoying


#4

That restriction is pretty common. It most likely is one resident that doesn’t care for the advertising or is a competitor. Usually, there is an equal ban on the other signs you see.


#5

I have a “no roofing signs” restriction in my neighborhood. We do plenty of my neighbors’ roofs and NEVER put a sign out. Why? Because that is the HOA rule.

Of course, my competitors put their signs out any way. They flat don’t give a @%#*.

Do I call the HOA on the competitor that insists on putting his sign out even though they are well aware that they aren’t allowed to that per HOA guidelines? You bet I do.

Not sorry one bit.

Just do a top notch job, keep the jobsite clean, be respectful of the neighbors, and anyone interested in a roof will ask there neighbor for a reference.

We have one neighborhood in particular full of huge slate houses, no signs allowed, but after 10 years we do work for 50% of the people who live there. Doing the best job is the most important part. WOrd of mouth is a million times better than a sign that any unlicensed, uninsured moron can buy, espically in tight nit communities where everybody talks.

This is true. Good work beats advertising.


#8

Pretty common around my service area. Some allow signs, but have to be in the CIA colors. Others ban service co. signs. I just make sure the box truck, with the 8x12 signage, is on that job for several days.
