Time for a New Roof? Make it FORTIFIED 

FORTIFIED goes beyond building codes to improve performance against natural hazards and reduce the risk of personal property loss.​

FORTIFIED Home™ is a nationally recognized building method based on more than 20 years of scientific research and real-world testing by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).

Your roof provides the first line of defense against the elements and an IBHS FORTIFIED Roof™ provides better protection against severe weather.


  • Stay dry.  A FORTIFIED Home helps protect your home and personal property from high winds and wind-driven rain.

  • Get back home quicker.  A FORTIFIED Home may reduce or eliminate time spent out of your home due to water intrusion if the roof is damaged.

  • Save money.  A FORTIFIED designation may qualify you for annual wind mitigation credit that could lower your insurance premium. Check with your insurance agent for specific policy requirements and potential wind mitigation credits in your area.
