Second step to the StrengtheningAlabama Homes (SAH) process.


As expected the Disaster Smartevaluator made the visit to my home on Monday,July 10th. There was a time spanof 8:00 to 12:00 for his arrival time, but he came promptly at 8:30 a.m. theevaluator said that he needed to do some measurements outside, and then he wentto the attic to finish out his evaluation; approximately 30 minutes. I signedthe form, and wrote a personal check to Disaster Smart for one hundred dollars.


On Friday, July 14, I received my evaluation report which included my job invoice and receipt of my previous onehundred dollar payment along with my home review report which stated myeligibility. My nineteen page report showed my home's construction features,compliance, and fortified home results. The report also showed pictures of my homeinterior (attic) and exterior(roof).  



On Thursday, July 20th, I receivedan email notification from SAH to go ahead with choosing my three contractorcompanies to provide me with a bid estimate that will be sent in to the SAH program. 

The SAH program fortifies existinghomes (roofs) in Mobile and Baldwin counties to ensure that homes are saferduring severe natural weather disasters. It also can reduce your homeowners insurance premiums. Be sure to go to the SAH website to getmore detailed information about fortified homes and wind mitigation, etc.


I chose three out of five contractors provided by the SAH program. I advise you to look at eachcontractor's website to determine whom you feel suits you best. After,Strengthen Alabama Homes receives the three bids, they will chose thecontractor company who would be least priced to complete my home's roof. 

At this point, the whole online andevaluation process has gone well! I will keep you posted with further progress!
