New Roofing Guidelines
Approval of roofs for new homes and re-roofing of existing homes will be based on the following:
1. The approve roofing materials are cement tile, clay tile and metal roofing materials. Cement and clay tile can be flat or barrel tile.
2. 5V or standing seam metal roofing can be approved but only for very specific architectural styles such as
o East Indies/West Indies style homes
o Keys Style homes
o NOT all homes are complemented by metal roofing
o NOT all applications for metal colored (silver) roof can be approved as there is a guideline for no same color roof within 4 hours (see 9 below)
3. Slate roofs will be considered based on architectural details of the home.
4. Asphalt roofs cannot be approved.
5. Metal roofing that simulates barrel or flat tile cannot be approved.
6. Mixed roof materials cannot be approved.
7. Flat roof materials cannot be approved.
8. Roof colors will need to coordinate with the exterior house/trim/accent colors and be in the earth tone color family. Metal roof colors can be silver/galvanized metal. Other “baked on” enamel color choices will be considered for metal roofs but must be in the earth tone color family. These “baked on” enamel finishes cannot be loud, have a high sheen, command unusual attention, or dominate the architectural appeal of the home.
9. No same color roofs within 4 houses in all visible directions.
10. Re roofing of existing homes with asphalt roofs can be considered but only with 50 year, high definition, architectural-roofing materials. The intent of the WindStone community is to eliminate asphalt roofs.
11. As new roofing materials are introduced, these materials will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
