Blue Tarp Roofs on a Gray Day campaign
Published August 30 2020 updated August 30 2020 2 minutes 2 seconds reading time.
We are assisting home and business owners with Blue Tarp services as well as temporary roof repairs from not for profit organizations to for profit companies that can work with your insurance companies offering temporary repairs.
Typically we would be calling the Operation Blue Roof which is managed by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
If you have called "Operation Blue Roof" toll free 1-888-ROOF-BLU (1-888-766-3258) number you would have heard their 2018 message for Hurricane Michael. That doesn't help you today and the only other method of requesting Operation Blue Roof from FEMA would be to apply in person with FEMA and complete the "Right of Entry" form granting permission for the Corps of Engineers and it's contractors to go onto individual properties to install the temporary roof.
It was reported during Hurricane Gustav we had 25,000 homeowners request tarps that took weeks to install.
Our goal is to bring more options than just FEMA and the US Army Corps of Engineers. We understand that typical homeowners insurance policies will offer $300 to homeowners to pay for the labor and materials to install blue tarps. We also know that insurance companies can and will allow quick quotes from independent contractors to roofing companies via email and phone to get your roof covered quickly in an effort to reduce additional damage.
In a disaster quick response providing temporary repairs can and often save money by reducing additional damage to the structure.
We are submitting your names to local FEMA contacts via the states GOSHEP and OSHEP. We also are sharing the list with not for profit organizations and for profit companies that can get the job done. We want to provide you with options that you and your insurance companies adjuster can choose from.
