Storm Doors

Must use full view glass for front storm doors.

Street Lights

Alabama Power has a directive to address the outage of streetlights. When a streetlight is out, call 1-800-254-2244 and if there is an identification number plate on the pole, this helps to identify the owner and if it's not Alabama Power, they advise the correct person. Provide the exact address of the light or specific directions to it. Repairs take place in the day when the light is not on.

Roof

The original shingles (Celotex Fiberglass/20 yrs. Weathered Wood Blend) are no longer made. Colors close to the original are CertainTeed CT 20 Weathered Wood or Royal Sovereign (GAF) 25 yr. Weathered Gray.   Additionally, for homes with trim paint colors of White , Indian Ivory (yellow), or Taos (tan), CertainTeed Landmark Premium Max Def Burnt Sienna shingles may be used.  Available at ABC Supply Co. Inc. 900 13th Street, North (328-3413). The board has also approved use of three tabbed shingles made by Timberline and Landmark.

All requests for exterior changes must be submitted to the board in writing. The board will respond to the request in writing.
