I want to paint the exterior of my house. How can I find out the names of the colors? I live in WestPark in Buckeye.
Your HOA probaby has meetings every month or so. Attend one of the meetings and make sure that there are no rules or restrictions that might impede your planned project. Good luck.

Bob Kuiper Home Inspections answered:
