It's easy to begin the process. The first step is to determine whether your home is eligible for the program.

  1. Was your home built previous to the 2002 Florida Building Code?
  2. Do you have proof of homestead exemption for the property you want to protect?

If you answered 'yes' to both of these questions then just follow these steps, and you may be on your way to financial savings and a little more peace of mind during our next storm:

  1. Turn in your application to Rebuild Northwest Florida (making sure that you request R.E. Reece Construction as your Construction Management Firm). Submitting your application can be done at Rebuild’s offices or online and requires a $200 deposit that will be applied towards your 25% payment of the project's cost.
  2. Allow Rebuild to perform a general inspection of your home. Based on the results, their licensed structural engineer will customize a scope of work specific to your home's needs.
  3. Allow R.E. Reece Construction (and possibly some of our subcontractors) to perform an inspection of your home so we can obtain the information needed to submit a detailed contractor bid relative to the work that will be necessary.
  4. Sign Rebuild's closing paperwork and pay the balance of your 25% of your project's total cost (following FEMA approval of your project).
  5. Schedule the construction work with one of our Project Managers and get your home protected. At the completion of your project, we will schedule a final inspection. This will be performed by the appropriate building inspection office to ensure all work was done in accordance with Florida Building Code and the structural engineer's defined scope of work.
  6. Schedule a wind mitigation inspection and obtain an OIR Form that you can submit to your insurance company.
