Roofing
 
 

Extracted in part from the Piney Creek Community Guidelines, page 15.
 
Roofing

Use of quality materials as specifically approved by the Committee is required.  All materials and color selections shall be compatible with the community’s architectural character and be of colors in harmony with the other existing homes in the neighborhood or of colors similar to those originally employed in the neighborhood.

All roofs shall be covered with original quality or better shingles or lightweight tile as applicable in the protective covenants for that Filing and which are harmonious with the rest of the Filing; multi-dimensional and multi-layered asphalt products or other high quality materials (tile, slate, etc.) that have discernible width, depth, height and colors which are aged appropriate tones (e.g. weathered wood).
 
The ACC has created a list of Approvable Roofing Material that shows approvable material for each filing.
 
Note that the Piney Creek Architectural Control Committee must be notified which roofing materials are to be used through the formal request and approval process prior to installation. This is NOT a blanket approval. A formal written request must be made on the Architectural Improvement Roofing Request Form .
Forms are also available at the clubhouse office.

Other Options for Roofing

In addition to composite roofing, other options exist including stone-coated steel, lightweight concrete tile, traditional tile, slate and fire-retardant treated cedar shake.
 
The ACC will review any proposed roofing materials using these guidelines:
  • The weight of the material must be at least 350 pounds per roofing square
  • The material must provide high definition, as in a triple laminate application.
  • The construction must be dimensional and visually comparable with traditional cedar shake roofing
  • Full panel sample of the material/color must be submitted to the ACC for approval
Please Note:  The presence of any material on the list of Approvable Roofing Material should not be construed as a warranty of the product quality, durability or reliability.  It is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure the quality of any materials used on their home.

The intent of this guideline is to allow for various roofing materials that maintain a dimensional and layered appearance, (similar to a shake roof) which are compatible and complimentary with the architectural style of the home.  Flat materials with no vertical relief, not multi-dimensional and multi-layered are prohibited.*
The Committee may eliminate approval of materials that had previously been allowed, provided that this elimination shall not affect such materials already approved and installed on existing roofs.

Roof materials shall be harmonious with the color and texture of other materials on the home and adjacent properties.

Homeowners who are considering the use of a low weight concrete tile are advised to seek the advice of a structural engineer in regard to the weight bearing capacity of their existing trusses.

*The Village-Filing #7, Morningside, and Overlook which were constructed originally with 3- tab shingles may be replaced with a similar material to the original construction.  Just like all other homeowners, roofs in these neighborhoods must be approved individually on a case-by-case basis.
 

There are no blanket approvals for any exterior addition or alteration to an existing residence at Piney Creek. You must submit an Architectural Improvement Request Form for each addition or change you wish to make. Submissions are judged on their individual merit for your particular house and the surrounding neighborhood.
