Tuscaloosa, Alabama Residents Could Get A New Roof For Free Through This Program
Being a homeowner is no easy task. Repairs and upkeep can drain the bank account. Luckily this program allows residents to qualify for a new or low-cost roof for their home.
Habitat for Humanity of Tuscaloosa has a roof replacement grant that helps residents in the Tuscaloosa area with their roofing needs. Need a new roof? You could qualify for the Habitat Tuscaloosa FORTIFIED Roof program.
This program is in partnership with Strengthen Alabama Homes and allows homeowners in the Tuscaloosa area to possibly receive a free or low-cost FORTIFIED roof replacement.
According to Habitat for Humanity Tuscaloosa, a FORTIFIED roof helps homes better withstand severe weather by keeping the roof on and keeping water out. Based on years of research, Fortified roofs protect against wind and wind-driven rain by:
Improving roof sheathing attachment
Providing a sealed roof deck
Reducing chances of attic ventilation system failure (roof vents and gable end wall vents)
There are some qualifications that need to be met before residents can receive assistance. The City of Tuscaloosa posted some requirements for the program on their Facebook page.
