Property owners will not paint or change the appearance of the outside of their house without prior written approval of the FARB.
The simplest and fastest way to fulfill this requirement is to download and complete the RLPOA application (found HERE) for the project with color samples and diagrams or drawings and return them to a Fountains ARB member. When it has been determined that the project meets the requirements of the Fountains, then a FARB member will sign and mark approved on the bottom of the application and take it to the Raintree Architectural Review Board (RARB). If it is determined that you don’t need RARB approval, the application will be returned to the homeowner, and you may proceed with your project.
PAINTING NEEDING APPROVAL:
All exterior painting including: the main house, doors, shutters, stucco, decks and stairs, foundations, garage doors, gutters, and windows require approval. We have color samples and samples of the siding used in The Fountains. The stucco and siding color names are not the same and I have some samples that have Sherwin WIlliams color numbers that match our siding. The FARB recommends getting the siding samples, comparing them to your home, and have the paint store match the color. Notifying the FARB of possible matches would be very helpful for future projects.
All changes that will alter the appearance of the outside of your home must be approved. This includes (but is not limited to) window, door, and garage door replacement; roofing; patios or extension of existing patios; landscape edging around your home or trees; awnings or pergolas; hot tubs; and plantings outside the original foundation edging, including trees.
Outdoor lighting must not be a nuisance to neighboring homes. Outside antennas are not acceptable. Special use antennas will be considered on a case by case basis. TV dishes that are 3 feet or less in diameter and attached to the house are approved. Plans for: canopies erected over existing structures, flag poles, egress fences, and bright colored shutters should be presented to the FARB which will then forward the request to the Fountains Board of Directors.
Colors that match your siding or stucco or are in earthtones that compliment the existing color theme of The Fountains are approved, but still need to be reviewed by the FARB. If you have questions, please talk with a FARB member:
