Introducing FORTIFIED Roof™ From a Certified Installer
In times of severe weather, a FORTIFIED Roof serves as a protective shield, effectively warding off the elements and thwarting the potential domino effect of destruction that could jeopardize your home and cherished possessions. Tailored with precision, FORTIFIED Roof is engineered to stave off the typical damages incurred during intense winds, hurricanes, hailstorms, severe thunderstorms, and can even withstand tornadoes up to an EF-2 rating. Irrespective of your roof's material—be it shingles, metal, or tile—adhering to the stipulated FORTIFIED Roof criteria will fortify your home's resilience.
Enhanced Roof ProtectionReinforced Roof Edges
The onset of roof damage often initiates when wind infiltrates the roof edge, instigating detachment from the home structure. To fortify this vulnerable area, FORTIFIED mandates specific materials and installation techniques. This includes a broader drip edge and a fully adhered starter strip, which, when employed together, establish a more robust system.Sealed Roof Deck
In cases where the wind dislodges your roof covering—such as shingles, metal panels, or tiles—it exposes the underlying wood, facilitating water ingress through gaps into your home. FORTIFIED necessitates the sealing of roof decks to avert this type of water damage.Enhanced Attachment
Rather than conventional smooth nails, FORTIFIED demands the use of ring-shank nails, strategically arranged to enhance the roof deck's grip on your home during high winds. In fact, the utilization of ring-shank nails nearly doubles the roof's resistance against the forces of wind.Hail-Resistant Shingles
In regions susceptible to hail, FORTIFIED mandates the use of shingles rigorously tested by IBHS to demonstrate their ability to withstand hailstones of up to 2 inches in diameter. These shingles surpass standard Class 4 shingles when subjected to real-world hail impact tests, offering superior protection for your home.
