Repairing Any Damage
Repairs approved quickly at Empire Management
We're here to help you begin the process of completing urgent repairs as fast as you can.
Are you looking for routine, preventative or permanent repairs to your lot? Do you need to replace or repair a portion of your house or lot because of storm damage? Before you begin any repairs, make sure to get approval from the review committee of your association.
Empire Management Group will work with your Board and Committee to provide fast processing for storm-related damage. HOAs that use our One Touch service can often receive identical replacements within one day of submission.
Your board can sometimes waive approval requirements when a storm causes widespread damage to a community, provided certain conditions are met.
All requirements are met. However, this is a case-by–case process that we have found to be very rare. Your board will communicate with you and other homeowners about next steps if your community falls within this category.
What repairs are eligible for ACC approval?
* Replacing a roofing.
* Repairing broken facias or other damaged items or damage to the exterior of your home’s appearance.
* Window replacement or upgrade

Next Steps in Submitting a Property Improvement Request
Submit a request form found on homeowner portal to the EMG ARC Department- please gather all supporting documents (lot survey showing location/dimensions, vendor plan showing project details unless doing it themselves, sample photos of material, and a photo of the area where project is being done). Some projects may require more documentation.
Applications are reviewed within 24-48 hours as they come in to determine if application is complete.
- If application is incomplete, an email is sent back to the homeowner letting them know what information/documents are missing in order for their application to be reviewed.
- If application is complete, an email is sent back to the homeowner letting them know that their application was received and is being submitted for review and that the Board/committee has up to 30 days to make a decision (some have 45 days).
The Board/Committee will review the application to determine if the improvement meets the architectural rules/guidelines established for the community and follows the aesthetic of the community.
Once the Board has made and submitted their decision to the ARC department, an approval/denial letter will be sent within 24-48 hours via email (USPS Mail if there is no email address).
The homeowner may begin working on their improvement after they have received an ARC Approval letter. The ARC Approval letter is valid for 90 days from the date on the approval letter.
