Grow your business and protect your community from severe weather
Roofing is a competitive business. A reputation for installing storm-ready roofs will help set your company apart from the crowd. Use the FORTIFIED standard, which is based on decades of research by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), to give your customers a roof that’s proven to withstand severe weather.
Contractors across the country are growing their businesses by meeting the increased demand for stronger, more resilient homes.
Homes built or re-roofed to the FORTIFIED Home™ standard are ready to stand up to Mother Nature. Based on decades of post-disaster studies and lab research conducted at the only full-scale test facility of its kind in the world, FORTIFIED is a voluntary above-code construction standard that improves a building’s resistance to the effects of severe weather. Use FORTIFIED to meet homeowner expectations for value and performance.
