FORTIFICATON EXPLAINED SIMPLY
What is a Fortified Home™?

There are three levels of designation, Bronze, Silver and Gold that build on each other. This lets you choose your goals, budget and level of protection.
Brief overview of each level:
The focus is on roof cover, decking, attic ventilation and soffits.
The focus is on opening protection systems and how the gable of a roof is built and how roofing overhangs are fastened.
The focus is on developing a continuous load path system from the foundation up to the roof
