If you have completed all repairs you should send a photograph to the HOA board with a request that they quit contacting you on repairs or remedies completed. If this does not work you may need to take legal action against them. Their continued interference with your enjoyment of your property may be considered a private nuisance. You may be able to get damages for their continued harassment. This only works if there are no legitimate violations on your property.
