Fortified Roof Logo

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 extensive 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.
