Homeowners: It's Time To Get FORTIFIED

Protect What's Most Important & Save

It’s Time To Get Your Roof FORTIFIED!

What Is The Louisiana Fortify Homes Program?

The Louisiana Fortify Homes Program from the Louisiana Department of Insurance provides a set of roof reinforcement standards developed by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety [IBHS] and implemented through their related program Fortified Home.

The IBHS Fortified Homes program offers Louisiana homeowners guidelines on how to strengthen their roofs to better withstand hurricane-force winds, a verification framework, and rewards them with lower homeowner’s insurance premiums.

How Does The Louisiana Fortify Homes Program Work?

The Louisiana Fortify Homes Program/IBHS Fortified Homes program is essentially a three-step process that includes working with an approved Fortify Evaluator, completing the required home improvements, and verification and certification. Depending on the level of fortification you choose, this process can take more or less time.

Evaluation

Your home will go through an initial evaluation by an approved Fortify Evaluator. During this evaluation, you will be presented with options on what level of fortification you want to achieve and the required improvements to meet the corresponding criteria.

Fortification

You complete the required improvements to achieve your chosen fortification level. In almost every case, spray foam insulation must be installed on all of the seams in the roof deck and rafters. Spray foam is the water-tight “glue” that holds it all together.

Savings

After you complete your home improvements, your Fortify Evaluator will certify your home and file the required paperwork, and you can contact your insurance company for significant discounts on the wind coverage of your insurance policy.

A Fortified Roof: It’s Better To Have It & Not Need It Than Need It And Not Have It

Alabama Knows That Fortified Roofs Work

Alabama has had a Fortified Roof program for a few years and its residents know how well having a Fortified Roof and Home survive when the next hurricane strikes. These Alabama homeowners all survived and thrived after Hurricane Sally because of their Fortified Roofs when their neighbors hardly had homes to come home to.

Coverages and discounts vary by carrier and are subject to change. Discounts listed are based on mitigation rate filings with the Louisiana Department of Insurance as of June 1, 2022.

Spray Polyurethane Foam Satisfies The Top Three

When it comes to satisfying fortification requirements for every level of roof/home fortification, no other single product ticks as many boxes on the list as spray polyurethane foam insulation. Click here to read the Fortied Roof page.

In one application of spray foam insulation along all of the roof decking and roof rafter seams, you achieve Enhanced Roof Deck Attachment, Sealed Roof Deck, and Locked Down Roof Edges. Unless you have a top-tier roof installed and every component meets the program requirements, you’re going to need spray foam insulation installed.

Nikki and her crew did an excellent job attending to my home energy needs. From the beginning, Nikki was very communicative letting me know exactly... what time the crew would arrive. They were very attentive to details, and made sure to keep me informed of everything that was going on throughout their work. They were even so kind as to let me know I had a roof leak, 😔, and notified me of it's location. They were mindful of my home and made sure not to disturb anything and even offered to help vacuum the house when they were done! They were also very aware, and kind, to my pup while going in and out the house, as he likes to dart around. Nikki made sure my gate and front door were always closed! (For those that have pets home while workers are present know how important this is.) I have had quite a few groups of people work on my home over the years and I can tell when someone cares about their work and when someone doesn't. Nikki and her team really cared, and I felt like I got to know them during the time they were working on my home. What a great job! It was a wonderful, EASY experience to work with them!read more

Jeff and his team were very informative and helped me to understand the way my AC and insulation were contributing to moisture issues I was having.... Through an educational approach, we addressed the most pressing issues and will re-evaluate progress over time. We added spray foam over a previous spray foam job that was inadequately done, corrected damaged duct work under my house with insulation, and replaced an oversized AC unit, all of which were contributing to excess moisture and wasted energy costs in my home.Jeff and team were also very friendly and professional, which was refreshing when I was being oversold and pressured by another company. I would certainly recommend Diversified Air to friends and family.read more

Diversified Energy, from its owner, Jeff Haag, to its team led by Nikki, were thorough, competent, professional, hard-working and cost-effective. We... had our attic ductwork sealed and then the entire attic floor insulated with blown-in cellulose fiber, covered completely by sheets of the cutting edge technology of QV Platinum PCM (Phase Change Material) [Diversified Energy is the sole provider of this technology in the metro area]. Our A/C system works less now, even with continuing heat. We recommend Diversified Energy for upgrading your home’s energy efficiency!!read more

Niki Aguillard and her crew came out to my house and did a fantastic job! They texted me what time they would arrive and they were on time. They made... sure every crack was sealed in my house and even put door sliders on the doors to keep the air from flowing in. They completely insulated the attic. They were very friendly and kind overall did an amazing job I’m very pleased with how they went over and beyond to ease every concern I had and I really appreciate their hard work. Would definitely recommend Diversified Energy “Plug into Comfort”read more

First off these are some friendly and professional people! They came in to our home and had nothing but respect and explained things in a way that... was more family/friend based than technical. BIG shout out to Mike and Ryan for the amazing help and work! They tested the house and did all the checks as well as made sure we had stuff in place. They hooked us up with a great light package that should help our energy use as well as lighting needs. Everything is top notch and amazing customer service!read more
