SAN ANTONIO (June 11, 2019) — The recent severe weather came with hail, high winds, felled trees, and damage to roofs. Councilman Roberto Treviño is encouraging homeowners looking to replace their damaged or aging roof to apply for a free roof through the Under 1 Roof Program. The program provides a free high-reflectance roof for residents who live in San Antonio and are: over 65, a veteran, differently-abled, or low-income.
“Nobody should have to live with a leaky, damaged roof,” said Treviño. “Apply today, and let’s keep building together to improve the quality of life for the entire city.”
Residents interested in learning more about Under 1 Roof are encouraged to contact the Neighborhood and Housing Services Department at (210) 210-207-6459, or visit sanantonio.gov/NHSD/Programs/Repair.
Non-qualifying homeowners looking to replace their weather-damaged roof are encouraged to look into installing a high-reflectance roof. Studies have shown that a high-reflectance roof has led up to a 23 degree decrease in attic temperature during the summer and $1,200 in savings on CPS Energy bills annually. CPS Energy offers a “Cool Roof Rebate” for homeowners who install a roof with qualifying materials. More information can be found at www.cpsenergy.com/coolroof.
