I've been looking into this. I got 3 bids and they all came in right around the $6,000 mark (I have a small cottage).
I called the information line at NC Insurance Underwriting and they said the grant is only for the amount over and above standard roof replacement. If standard roof costs $4,500 and fortified upgrades cost $1,500, you only get $1,500.
Can someone clarify this for me?
In the FAQs on the Strengthen Your Roof website one of the questions is "Will I get $6000?"
"The grant maximum amount is $6,000. However, if the entire cost of installing a FORTIFIED Roof™ is less than $6,000, the grant amount will be limited to the total cost of the roof. In this scenario, the grant amount will be less than $6,000. "
Whoever you spoke to was incorrect.
