Cordova HOA Paint Colors


The Board of Directors of the Cordova Homeowners Association has approved 58 paint color schemes for the Cordova Community.

The color schemes are based on Dunn-Edwards Paints and include schemes based on the existing approved colors and updated color schemes. The color schemes DO NOT necessarily reflect the existing or original schemes specified in the past by the Association.

The colors must be used exactly as shown in Scheme Form. Each scheme includes a legend that specifies the appropriate placement color for the various architectural features of the homes.

All homes needing repainting must choose one of the fifty eight (58) color schemes approved by the Association. The Board of Directors will not approve paint colors on an individual basis.

However, homeowners may elect to repaint their home to match the existing color(s), of the home provided that the existing color(s) were originally approved by the Association. The homeowner must provide supporting documentation of prior approval before re-painting the residence. Any change to either color or combination of colors requires homeowners to select one of the 58 approved color schemes and all current guidelines.

Roll up garage doors need not be painted and can be left in their original color/finish. If you have a wood garage door that door must be painted either thecolor of the wood fascia trim or the color of the stucco.

The color schemes are available for review on the Dunn Edwards website and in a color scheme book at the Dunn-Edwards Paint Store
