Cypress Roofing takes pride in being one of the select roofing companies with FORTIFIED Roofing Certification. FORTIFIED offers a superior approach to constructing, re-roofing, or retrofitting homes for enhanced protection against severe weather. This program was created by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) and is a voluntary initiative for strengthening residential and commercial structures to withstand severe weather conditions like high winds, hail, hurricanes, and even tornadoes.
Why Choose Fortified Roofing
Stronger EdgesRoof damage frequently initiates when strong winds infiltrate beneath the roof's edge, starting to tear it away from the structure. To fortify this susceptible area, FORTIFIED mandates the use of particular materials and installation techniques. This includes implementing a broader drip edge and a fully adhered starter strip. When combined, these components form a more robust roofing system, bolstering the home's defense against wind-driven forces.
Sealed Roof DeckIf high winds tear off your roof covering, whether it's shingles, metal panels, or tiles, it leaves the underlying wood vulnerable and opens the door for water to infiltrate your home. FORTIFIED takes measures to address this issue by mandating the sealing of roof decks, effectively thwarting this kind of water damage. This extra layer of protection ensures that your home remains secure and safeguarded against the elements, even in the face of extreme weather conditions.
Better AttachmentInstead of using the typical smooth nails, FORTIFIED standards mandate the use of ring-shank nails, strategically installed in a reinforced pattern. This specialized approach plays a crucial role in securing your roof deck to your home, particularly during periods of high winds. In fact, the incorporation of ring-shank nails almost doubles the structural integrity of your roof, significantly bolstering its ability to withstand the powerful forces of wind. This extra measure of protection can offer you greater peace of mind during severe weather events.
Insurance Premium SavingsNumerous insurance providers acknowledge the exceptional safeguarding capabilities of FORTIFIED roofing systems. Opting for a FORTIFIED roof may make you eligible for insurance premium discounts, which could translate into cost savings for you, all while fortifying your home or business against potential damage.
