IBHS created FORTIFIED Roof™ to help homeowners keep their roof on and keep water out during hurricanes, high winds, hail, and severe thunderstorms.

Focused Protection

- Focus is on strengthening the roof, a home’s first line of defense against severe weather.


    - Scope of work is now limited to work routinely performed by roofers.

      Cost Effective

      - FORTIFIED Roof standards aren’t particularly expensive or costly compared to other existing methods. 

        Streamlined Workflow

        - Workflow is now streamlined for Evaluators and roofers, making the process easier.

          Simpler Brand

          - New name is more meaningful to homeowners and roofing contractors.
