Want a FREE $10,000 to replace your roof? But do you need to...

I have been having a lot of people asking lately about the FREE $10,000 GRANT from  Strengthen Alabama Homes.

I have actually been through most of this process so I wrote about my experience:

First let me state a few basic bits of info.
1 - If you don't need a new roof then just stop reading and forward this to someone that does.
2 - My experience is based on a 2,200 square foot 1 story home that has an A frame (Gable) roof.
3 -  If you are not organized then this may be a little harder for you. There is a lot of follow up and back and forth with emails to the people at Strengthen Homes(State), Contractors, Surveyors...
4 - You need to be a little informed with how to use a scanner to input the needed documents like taxes, homeowners insurance, ID...

The quick info:

After putting in all my info and going back and forth via email I had a surveyor come out to my house to see what it needed to get my home to the 'Silver" level of Fortified Home. This is a fee you have to pay so expect to come out of pocket from $250 - $350. Once he came out he sent my info to the contractors I chose. Once they came out I had bids from $30,000 to $13,800. At the end of the day my roof has 7 - 15 years of life left in it and I am not experiencing any MAJOR leaks so even with the $10,000 grant, why would I pay $3,800 since I don't need one.  However, if I did need one then this would be a huge blessing and I would for sure move forward and get a new roof. Had I moved forward I would have had to pay immediately the contractor to get started. The Bid is good for 6 Months

For all other info and to get started go to The Strengthen Alabama Homes Grant
