Q.  What are the approved fence colors for wood fences?
A.

Many of the existing wood fences in the Hidden Springs Community are in need of restoration, repair and staining. CC&R Courtesy Reminders will be issued this spring if your fence needs attention. In an effort to create a consistent and harmonious look, fresh appearance and maintain property values a new wood stain color was approved by the Town Design Review Board (TDRB) for Hidden Springs, Sherwin Williams Deck Shagbark 3001 (or BEHR Cordovan Brown SC 104 same color alternative brand) solid stain (September 2019).

  • Re-staining an existing wood privacy fence: You can re-stain your existing wood fence with the stain color previously approved for your fence (Olympic Semi Transparent White Birch 901 or Cedar Natural Tone) or use the new color, Sherwin Williams Deck Shagbark 3001 (or BEHR Cordovan Brown SC 104 same color alternative brand) solid stain. Use of ANY OTHER color or stain must be submitted to the TDRB for consideration.
  • Staining a wood privacy fence for the first time (i.e. new or replacement): If you are constructing a wood privacy fence for the first time or, you are re-constructing a wood privacy fence in disrepair, the approved stain color is Sherwin Williams Deck Shagbark 3001 (or BEHR Cordovan Brown SC 104 same color alternative brand) solid stain.

Q.  I am painting my house, do I need to get approval?
A.

 If you are selecting new colors for your home you will need to complete and submit a Design Review Submittal and Exterior Color Selection form for review and approval by TDRB (Town Design Review Board). Forms are available on the website or in the Town Office. Remember to include paint chips and a check for $50.00. Please allow 5 working days for this process. If you are painting your home using the existing colors (not changing anything), you do not need approval.

Q.  How often should I stain my fence?
A.

The average life-span for semi-transparent stains is 2 years possibly more if two coats are applied. If you can’t remember the last time you stained your fence… it has probably been too long!
