[ARCHIVED] Pinellas: Residents Running Out of Time to Get Free Temporary Roof Repairs

Residents with damaged roofs from Hurricane Irma only have a couple more days to get a temporary repair done for free through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Operation Blue Roof.

Registration is simple. Residents or designees must go to the Blue Roof center in person. Staff will ask several questions and then schedule assessments. If the home is eligible, a contractor will make the repair. This process is often completed within a week.

In Pinellas County, the center is located at Indian Rocks Baptist Church, Suite A, 12629 Ulmerton Road, Largo. It is open 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
