"We need a blessing from the HOA to say there's no violations," Luna told KXAS. "It's taking resources away for my family because we can't sell our home, and there's no empathy whatsoever."

Luna replaced his roof after hail from the 2017 and previous storm seasons damaged portions of it. A roofing contractor who lives in the neighborhood, and has a similar grey color shingle, did the work. 

But Luna did not get approval from the HOA to alter his roof and the color of the shingle he used is not allowed under the association bylaws, according to KXAS

The HOA vice president said that rules are rules and the color of the roof is blue, not grey, according to KXAS

Luna’s choices are to get a $5,000 loan for a new roof or continue to fight the association. He said he has contacted an attorney to help settle the matter, according to KXAS.
