Four years ago a neighbor hit our house with his car. It ended up being kind of awesome, because we had been meaning to paint our house anyway.
Well the HOA started complaining that our house wasn't the correct color. Only instead of complaining immediately, when we could have done something about it, they didn't complain until three years later. Too late to go back to the contractor.
I had to freaking pay to have my house painted again.
To be fair, there was stucco damage we had wanted repaired anyway. And I don't know what the heck happened over the years, if it faded or what, but the paint definitely was the wrong color and an ugly green. So even though we weren't happy about it, the house does look so much better.
