Exterior Maintenance of Living Units and Other Structures

Compliance issues are either reported to the Lake Linganore Association (LLA) staff by a resident or generated by an LLA staff member as a result of a village inspection. Complaints reported by residents are inspected and verified before any action is taken.

Exterior Maintenance – Painting

Property owners are required to repaint the exterior building surface and trim of their home every five (5) years. Other areas that need to be periodically maintained are as follows: –

• Gutters and downspouts
• Roofs
• Shrubs and lawns
• Walks and driveways
• Fences

ECC Permit

As a reminder an Environmental Control Committee (ECC) permit is required if any modification is being made to an existing unit e.g. If the color of the unit is being modified, let’s say from brown to cream an ECC permit is required. An ECC permit is not required if the unit is being repainted in the exact same color.

The permit approval process can take as long as 15 – 20 working days so please allow sufficient time when submitting your application(s). ECC permit applications can either be downloaded from the LLA website or collected at the LLA office.

Pressure wash/Power wash Vinyl Siding

Property owners whose units have vinyl siding are reminded to take a look at the exterior of their unit to see if there is a buildup of algae or mildew. Mildew and algae if left untreated can stain or discolor the siding on your home. Siding should be washed regularly to avoid discoloration and staining.

Residents are encouraged to contact their Village Manager to engage in a dialogue regarding any concerns, issues or violations.
