HABITAT TUSCALOOSA GETS GRANT FOR 50 FORTIFIED ROOFS

Habitat 1

Thanks to a new grant, Habitat for Humanity Tuscaloosa is installing 50 fortified roofs for residents in Tuscaloosa and Pickens counties.

Habitat Tuscaloosa Executive Director Ellen Potts said a fortified roof is more durable during storms and also helps residents lower their insurance premiums.

“The construction techniques used with this make this much more wind resistant,” Potts said. “These people get a discount on their home insurance now and will be able to sleep where it’s dry.”

Habitat Tuscaloosa also builds homes for families in need. To donate, visit habitattuscaloosa.org or call 205-349-4629.
