Operation Blue Roof FAQ’s

Q: What is Operation Blue Roof?
A: Operation Blue Roof is a program offered by FEMA through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to eligible homeowners and landlords. It provides a temporary covering of blue plastic sheeting to help reduce further damage to property until permanent repairs can be made. The blue plastic sheeting is installed using strips of wood that are secured to the roof with nails or screws. The homeowner/landlord must legally agree to allow the Corps contractors access to the property by signing a Right of Entry (ROE) form.
Q: What is a Right of Entry?
A: The Right of Entry (ROE) is a legal requirement that allows Corps workers to access your property and assess damage to your home. The ROE also allows contracted crews to work on your roof.
Q: How does a homeowner, landlord or renter get a Blue Roof?
A: Call 1-888-ROOF-BLU (1-888-766-3258) or visit the Jacksonville District website at
www.saj.usace.army.mil/BlueRoof to find a location where Right of Entry (ROE) forms are being collected.
Q: Who can get a Blue Roof?
A: Only applicants in primary residences with standard shingled roofs are eligible to receive a temporary blue roof. Metal roofs and mobile homes may be repaired as practical on a case by case basis. Roofs with greater than 50 percent structural damage are not eligible for this program.
Q: How long until a roof is repaired?
A: The Corps is covering roofs in the hardest hit counties first. The Corps will respond to every person who has completed a ROE as rapidly as possible. Every property that has a signed ROE will be visited.
Q. If a home is being rented, can a tenant sign a right of entry form?
A: Yes the tenant may sign the form, but must have a letter from the landlord stating that the tenant has
permission to sign for the landlord.
Q. Will the work be charged to my insurance?
A: There is no charge to the homeowner or landlord. However, you should contact your insurance company. They may want to document the damage and assist with permanent repairs.

Q: How long will a Blue Roof last?
A: The plastic is a reinforced, water-proof material that is designed to last 30 days. We recommend homeowners make arrangements for permanent roof repairs within 30 days if possible.

Do I qualify for Operation Blue Roof?

  1. The home must be the primary residence* of the person or household requesting the emergency roof covering; AND
  2. The residence has more than 50 percent of the roof framing undamaged. The framing must support the plastic sheeting as a temporary repair, and be able to provide safe shelter once contractors install the tarp; AND
  3. The resident certifies that he or she is the owner of the residence requested to be covered OR is a renter that has obtained legal permission to continue occupying the residence until more permanent repairs are made; AND
  4. The resident certifies that they will shelter in the residence that they have requested to be covered; AND
  5. The roof must be standard roof shingles, or a similar material that will allow contractors to nail the tarp in place. Contractors will consider repairs to metal roofs and mobile homes on a case-by-case basis and will install the cover if possible.  Contractors cannot cover roofs made of materials such as slate, asbestos or clay tile, or other material which would be exceptionally difficult to repair, or would likely be damaged during tarp installation.

Operation Blue Roof is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on behalf of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

* If homeowners are unable to visit a Right of Entry Center in person, they may send another person to make the request for them. Landlords may also make requests for tenants who use their homes as a primary residence.

 About Operation Blue Roof

In disaster areas, Operation Blue Roof is a program for homeowners who have damage to their roofs. The program sends licensed contractors out to homes to cover the damage with fiber-reinforced plastic sheeting (tarp) until homeowners can arrange repairs.

Operation Blue Roof allows residents to stay in their homes, instead of paying for temporary housing or hotels. The program also protects property while homeowners recover from the storm.

This is a free service to homeowners with homes that are primary residences or permanently occupied rental properties that have less than 50 percent structural damage. Vacation rental properties are not eligible for the program. Not all roof types qualify for the program (see eligibility below).
