As the pre-eminent roofing company serving Mobile and Baldwin counties, Patriot Roofing is dedicated to providing customers with not just the best service, but also the most current and innovative roofing solutions available. One such innovative approach we are excited to introduce is the Fortified Homes program – a cutting-edge certification system that ensures your home’s resilience against extreme weather conditions.
Understanding the Fortified Homes Program
The Fortified Homes program is an initiative from the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), designed to improve the resilience of homes against severe weather events. It establishes a set of construction standards intended to bolster your home’s defenses against natural disasters, reducing the risk of property damage, and ultimately keeping your family safer. The program offers three levels of designation: Bronze, Silver, and Gold, each signifying varying degrees of protection and resilience.
Why Fortified Homes?
If you live in Mobile and Baldwin Counties, you are no stranger to the severe weather conditions this region faces. From hurricanes to high winds, our homes are frequently tested by Mother Nature’s might. The Fortified Homes program aims to reduce the devastation caused by these events and decrease the subsequent financial burden on homeowners and insurance companies.
Implementing the standards outlined by the Fortified Homes program has several benefits, including potentially reducing your insurance premiums, improving your home’s resale value, and most importantly, offering peace of mind knowing that your home has been fortified to withstand severe weather.
Patriot Roofing and the Fortified Homes Program
At Patriot Roofing, we understand the importance of a solid, fortified roof, especially for homes in our service areas. That’s why we are proud to have trained Fortified-Wise Professional Roofers on our team, certified to implement the standards required for the Fortified Homes program.
We are committed to not only installing new roofs but also fortifying existing ones. Regardless of the age of your home, our team can evaluate your current roof system and offer solutions to upgrade it to the Fortified standards.
The Fortified Roofing System
The Fortified roofing system includes several critical components designed to enhance the durability and resilience of your roof. These include a sealed roof deck to prevent water intrusion, braced gable ends for increased strength, fortified roof edges to reduce the chance of wind damage, and fortified roof-to-wall connections for improved structural integrity.
Working with a Fortified-Wise Professional Roofer
When you choose Patriot Roofing, you choose a company committed to the highest standards of professionalism, craftsmanship, and customer service. We strive to provide you with a roofing system that will not only look good but will also protect your home for years to come.
When you decide to fortify your home, our Fortified-Wise Professional Roofers will guide you through the process. We will evaluate your home’s current state and provide recommendations based on the Fortified Homes program’s guidelines. Following the evaluation, we will implement the necessary upgrades to ensure your home is fortified.
After your roof is fortified, a third-party evaluator will inspect it to ensure it meets the Fortified Homes program standards. Upon a successful inspection, your home will be officially designated as a Fortified Home, with Bronze, Silver, or Gold certification based on the level of resilience features integrated into your home.
Choosing to fortify your home is choosing to protect your family and your investment. It’s about peace of mind, knowing that even in the face of severe weather, your home has been designed and built to withstand the test. At Patriot Roofing, we are honored to play a role in enhancing the safety and resilience of homes in Mobile and Baldwin counties through the Fortified Homes program.
