Painting Clarifications: 
Q and A
 
Q:  Do I have to notify the HOA that I am painting?
A:  Yes, you are required to fill out a Design Submittal Application that provides approved paint codes for the body, trim and accent of your home. Additionally if you have contracted a painter, the painter/company name is on the application.    This is for record purposes.  If you have a painter who does not paint according to what is submitted, they will be required to correct the violation. 
Q:  Can I paint my home the color that it is?
A:  Yes, you can paint your home the original color painted by the builder.  Keep in mind you need to have a color # code to provide to the painter or to the paint company should you be painting your own home.  ALL of Tortosa original colors are at least 10 years old therefore, faded.  When you paint with the original color matched with the color code your home will look darker, richer and newly painted. 
Q:  Do I have to hire a painter?
A:  No, you can paint your own home.  Regardless if you hire a painter or paint yourself, the guidelines need to be followed. 
Q:  Are the block walls connected to my home to be painted?
A:  Yes, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain their block wall to the property line.  You may re-paint the block wall with Mesa Tan, or you may re-paint the block wall with the body color of your home. 
Q:  Can I create my own color scheme?
A:  You are able to choose colors from different schemes as long as:
Body is used for Body/Trim/Garage door color
Trim is used for Trim/Garage door color
Accent is used for Accent color only (ex. Shutters & Front door)
