After a storm, demand for contractors is high. After protecting your home from further damage, take your time to hire a company you trust. Consider selecting a contractor or roofing contractor listed in the FORTIFIED directory—each of them is insured and licensed.* Even better, when they repair your home or roof, they can build it back stronger by following the FORTIFIED construction method—making this the last time you have to go through this process.
The US Small Business Association (SBA) offers disaster assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, and business owners in regions affected by declared disasters. Loans are given to cover repairs and replacement of physical assets damaged in a declared disaster.
To protect homes and businesses from future storm damage, SBA will loan an additional 20% to property owners choosing to upgrade to the FORTIFIED standard. For more information about the SBA disaster loan program, visit sba.gov/disaster.
