JEFFERSON PARISH, LOUISIANA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OPERATION BLUE ROOF EXTENDED THROUGH OCTOBER 15, 2021
JEFFERSON, LA – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended its Blue Roof program sign-up deadline through October 15, 2021 for residents who sustained Hurricane Ida damage in the 25 eligible parishes, including Jefferson Parish. Residents can sign up for the program online at blueroof.us or call toll free 1-888-ROOF-BLU (1-888-766-3258).
The Blue Roof program provides homeowners with fiber-reinforced waterproof plastic sheeting, professionally installed to cover their damaged roofs until permanent repairs are made. Homeowners with less than 50 percent structural roof damage are eligible for the service at no cost.
Vacation rental properties are not eligible for this program. After the blue roof is installed, the structure is declared habitable. Roofs that are flat, made of clay, slate or asbestos tile do not qualify. Major storm debris must be removed for the roof to qualify, as contracted crews only have the ability to remove minor debris from damaged roofs. Metal roofs and mobile homes will be repaired as practical on a case-by-case basis.
