Just a Little Extra Effort...
“With just a little extra quality and a little extra effort, this can go a long way toward making our whole coastline more resilient.”
– Commissioner Mike Causey | North Carolina Department of Insurance

Get Savings Based on Your Level of Protection
Homeowners near the North Carolina Coast (rating territories 110, 120, 130, 140 150 and 160) may be eligible for discounts on their homeowners insurance. The amount of the discount is based on the location of your home and the level of FORTIFIED protection you have.

Best If You Can’t Get FORTIFIED Before the Next Storm
If you are not able to get a FORTIFIED Roof before the next storm comes, make sure your homeowners policy includes a FORTIFIED Endorsement. Offered by several carriers in North Carolina (and provided for free by NCIUA), this extra piece of insurance will pay additional funds to help offset the cost of upgrading to a FORTIFIED Roof, if yours is being replaced due to a covered loss. Cost for the endorsement varies by carrier.
Ask your insurance company for details.
Some insurers in North Carolina will
Pay You to Upgrade to FORTIFIED
if you have an endorsement and have significant roof damage
