Home Improvement Resources

Like the island itself, your Kiawah home is special. KICA and other island entities help you maintain your quality of life and peace of mind, with services and regulations to protect your property.

Home Services by KICA Maintenance

KICA’s maintenance department offers complimentary mailbox painting and repairs, and backflow testing and certification, and discounted pine straw orders. For these services, log in to your member account and submit a contact form requesting the service.

Home Project Permits

KICA encroachment permits are required for most home projects (interior, exterior and landscape), such as new construction, additions, remodels and upgrades to electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems. There is no fee for an encroachment permit. Have your contractor contact KICA’s Livability Department office to obtain a permit. Architectural Review Board permits are required for home exterior and landscape improvements. Town permits are required for home remodel or construction projects.

Landscaping Resources

Before performing grounds maintenance or view trimming, please review community guidelines for landscaping, and consider using native plants.
