Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If the HOA Bylaws state that they are responsible for any repairs and they are stalling, then you may have to force your issue to become a priority for them. The first way to do so would be to have a local attorney send a "demand letter" threatening to sue them for breach of contract if they don't take the necessary steps to begin any repairs immediately.
Then if they still don't take action, you may have to actually file suit against them to force them to comply. However, under most Bylaws that I have seen, there is a clause that states in the event of any dispute between an owner and the HOA, the "prevailing party" is entitled to their reasonable legal fees. So if your Bylaws are like virtually all the ones I have seen, then you could hold them liable for your attorney costs if you actually had to sue them.
