Home Exterior Replacements and Upgrades
If you are planning to replace or upgrade any exterior materials on your home, the materials must be of like kind and quality. Garage doors, windows, roofing, lighting and siding are examples. Any deviations to existing materials, design or color must be submitted to the Architectural Committee for approval using the forms below.
Single family and townhouse garage doors vary. Single family garage doors must be replaced with solid white CHI brand recessed panel sandwich doors (without windows). Townhomes should use flat panel doors or a replacement door that matches doors next to or facing them. Two local CHI dealers / installers are listed below:

There are various siding materials available today that are similar to cedar siding. These materials are not recommended as they do not exactly match the original siding and tend to cost significantly more than cedar. For siding replacement and repairs, use only Shakertown Contemporary 7" even butt exposure panels.
Windows, Skylights and Vents
Original windows are Andersen. Replacements are available from, but not limited to, Andersen Renewal windows. The only requirement is that any replacement window must look the same as the original from the exterior. The same policy applies to skylights and vents.
Roof shingle replacement should be of the same type and color as original. Architectural grade is preferred. Deviations must be approved by the Architectural Committee. Townhouse shingles must match neighboring units.
