FORTIFIED goes beyond emergency and disaster preparedness to give you peace of mind knowing your roof is structurally resilient and will better withstand severe weather.
A grant program aimed at improving the quality of roof construction in Louisiana could begin accepting applications in October, creating an avenue for homeowners to get modest discounts on their property insurance.
The program will allow homeowners to receive as much as $10,000 to retrofit their roofs to the Fortified standard, which will make their homes stronger in the face of future hurricanes. That means the money set aside by the Legislature could provide grants to at least 3,000 homeowners.
Created by the industry-backed Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, the more robust standard is designed to keep the roof on a house and thus diminish the likelihood of a large insurance claim.
Certified builders install the roofs; the quality of their work is verified by a third party. At the end of the process, homeowners receive a certificate that insurers accept in exchange for a discount.
