Multifamily housing differs from most commercial building situations because it is often managed by a North Carolina or South Carolina homeowners association looking out for the safety of residents and adhering to cost controls that align with a strict budget. Homeowners Association management companies (HOA) typically have a budget set aside for common area maintenance and repairs, which can include big projects like a roof replacement for a condominium. The HOA South Carolina or North Carolina boards of directors at any given property will typically make the decision on when a roofing project is necessary, and will then put together a proposal for the project, including cost estimates. This proposal will then be presented to the members of the HOA for approval, composed of unit owners in a building or common property. Once approved, the HOA will hire a contractor, like Arnold Roofing & Restoration to complete the work. The cost of the project will typically be divided among all the unit owners in the form of a special assessment, through an increase in regular HOA dues, or from a reserve budget managed by the homeowners association. It is important for homeowners association management companies to follow the bylaws and state laws regarding the process for approving and funding such projects.
