Lot 39 and 54 Metal Roof
Josh created this online petition to make this easy. Thanks for everyone's feedback!
Josh and I are building on lot #39, Steve McBee is building on lot #54, and we both would like to put a standing seam metal roof on. The covenants state that all roofs shall be of a composition type commonly known as "timber line"or "heritage" style, which shall be "weathered wood" in color. A metal roof therefore has not been approved by the Board. The Board has requested we call a special meeting to present to the community our desire to use materials that are outside of the covenants and restrictions. The roof would be charcoal gray. Below are pictures of both front elevations and pros for a metal roof:
- Environmentally friendly. Metal roofs not only have 25-95% recycled content, depending on the material used, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream — up to 20 billion pounds per year.
- Energy efficiency. Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
- Durability. Some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour, will not corrode or crack, and may be impact-resistant (depending on which metal you choose). In addition, metal roofs don't need the periodic costly maintenance that other roofing materials often require. However, they should be inspected periodically to make sure no repairs are required.
- Safety. Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames during a wildfire or lightning strike.
- Longevity. Metal roofs can last 40-70 years, depending on the material. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimated life expectancy of roughly 12-20 years.
Per the Board, we need 16 signatures to call the special meeting.
If we receive 16 signatures, we then would call the special meeting. At this time we would like to recommend the date of June 1, 2020 @ 7pm in our driveway and maintain social distancing, but this date could change. We are not permitted to start construction until the roof is approved or denied, per the Board.
Per Clay County Emergency Order: First Phase: That Public Health Emergency Order Amended 03222020 dated April 17th, 2020, is hereby amended and is set to begin 12:01 A.M., May 4th, 2020 and set to expire on 11:59 P.M., Sunday, May 31, 2020.
Sorry to inconvenience everyone with this. We appreciate your input!
Josh, Gina, & Steve
