ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT PAINTING YOUR HOME?
The Board of Directors is excited to announce new paint schemes. The new paint schemes can be found on the Dunn Edwards website. Please visit: www.DunnEdwards.com/colors/archive/color-ark-pro and enter :Foothill Ranch HOA" in the Search by Keywords tab. Select the color of your roof tiles from the dropdown menu for the full list of schemes available for each roof color.
Please keep in mind, while there are specific pre-approved schemes for each roof type, you are still required to submit your painting project with the color schemes you've chosen to the Architectural Committee for approval. This includes filling out the Home Improvement Form and the Neighbor Notification Form.
Dunn Edwards also offers a free service which will provide a digital image of your home and they will "mock up" your preferred colors to see how it will look on the house. If interested in this service, please call Dunn Edwards and make an appointment with the Professional Paint Advisor. For the Dunn Edwards closest to Foothill Ranch, please contact 949-459-1195.

If you have any questions about the approved mailboxes or posts, please contact Management.
