10 Common Construction Projects For Homeowners Associations
If you are a new property manager, then you are probably wondering what to look for as far as improving and maintaining your homeowner association (HOA) property with construction. In this blog we will discuss the most common construction projects for HOA based off our experience.
Overview: 10 Common Construction Projects For HOA’s
Not every construction project is the same. Projects can vary in size and complexity. Some may require more of an involvement and investment by the HOA than others. Depending on your HOA’s needs will determine which projects you will pursue.
Here is a list of 10 common construction projects for HOAs
- Termite and dry rot repairs
- Drywall, plaster, and stucco installation and repairs
- Restroom renovations
- Clubhouse renovations
- ADA Compliance
1) Termite And Dry Rot Repairs
Termite and dry rot repairs are probably one of the most common requested repairs by property managers. Overtime, woods begin to weaken with the presence of termite, or by the development of dry rot. Eventually, every HOA will seek the assistance of a contractor to remove damage structures and replace them.
Common areas that have termite damage are:
- Retaining walls
Usually, the replacement of wood structures will require painting and coating to be done by the contractor for additional fee.
2) Drywall, Plaster, And Stucco Installation And Repairs
Drywall, plaster, and stucco are common among many HOA construction projects. Typically, you will need to install drywall, plaster, or stucco if you are remodeling, expanding, or creating a new common area. Overtime, drywall, plaster, and stucco need repairs because of human interaction and the environment. Drywall, plaster, and stucco play an important role in the appearance of an HOA.
3) Restroom Renovations
Restroom renovations are a great investment made by most HOAs that benefit both the community and property management team. These renovations can include new toilets, flooring, faucets, stalls, lighting and more. With the ultimate end goal being to improve the appearance and efficiency of the community restroom.
Residents will benefit of having more comfort in using the community restroom, which can help them become more engaged and involved in community events. Furthermore, property management can benefit the support and appreciate by the community for its allocation of its budget to fund a restroom renovation.

4) Clubhouse Renovations
Just like restroom renovations, clubhouse remodels can be quite beneficial for the community. Clubhouses are probably the place where the community interacts with one another the most. It can be a great way to increase the value and quality of life in the community.
Certain clubhouse renovations include:
- New lighting
- Upgraded appliances
- New furniture
- Repairs and preventive maintenance
- Interior and exterior painting
- Room additions
Keeping your HOA new, updated, and well maintained can help prevent vandalism. In addition, it can help produce a collective efficacy within the community which will increase security and relationship throughout the community.
Fencing is a great way to keep your HOA community safe, secure, and presentable. Often, property managers will reach out to us to install new fencing or to repair/replace existing ones. Fencing can vary based off the HOA’s needs and desires. Here are the most common types of fencing used in HOAs”

Many of the communities we serve have decks. Decks are very popular among HOAs and as a result we help them install and maintenance them when needed. Decks are quite a common project for construction companies because they experience wear and tear over the years, which will require the replacement or repairs of all decks within a community.
Here are some common deck services that construction companies offer:
- Preventative maintenance

Here and there accidents will happen. Which is why one of the most common projects we experience with HOAs is restoration projects. Restoration projects can include vandalism, vehicle, water, or fire damage.
To prevent or eliminate future risk, HOAs hire construction companies to restore structures and building to their previous state.
Some common projects we will receive involve concrete. These projects include:
- Retaining walls
- Ramps and stairs
- Simple repairs of cracks and chips
Concrete projects are always in demand in HOA communities because of the wear and tear of concrete.
No one wants to live in an unwelcoming or ugly community environment. As a result, many HOA property managers hire contractors to keep their community freshly painted.
10) ADA Compliance
HOAs are making great strides to make their community more accessible for all and to abide by ADA guidelines to avoid legal penalties. As a result, many HOA communities work with contractors in complete ADA compliant upgrades to their community.
Some of these ADA compliant upgrades includes to:
- Common Areas
- Parking Lot
