Realtors: Home Buyers Want FORTIFIED Homes

Buying Or Selling – A Fortified Home Sells Itself

Hurricane Ida, Hurricane Katrina. What comes to mind when you think of these natural disasters? Blue tarped roofs as far as the eye can see. Homeowners losing cherished possessions. Families in disaster shelters and hotels, unable to return to their homes because their house was destroyed from the top down.

The FORTIFIED Roof/Home program from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety [IBHS] is a set of tested guidelines [Fortified Roof, Fortified Silver Home & Fortified Gold Home] for how to make a home more resilient in the face of extreme weather that starts with the roof and can be extended to an entire home. These are the standards and verification model adopted by The Louisiana Fortify Homes Program.

Louisiana homeowners are getting their home’s roof FORTIFIED so they can qualify for significant discounts on their homeowner’s insurance premiums and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing their new or retrofitted roof is designed to weather high winds, driving rain, extreme weather, and hurricanes.

Home Buyers Can Afford More Home If It Has A FORTIFIED Roof

That’s right! Your home buyers can afford to buy a higher-priced home simply because it has a Fortified Roof and qualifies for significant insurance premium discounts. You know how the money works, and your clients can either spend their approved payment on the house or payments to the insurance company.

Louisiana home insurance rates have been skyrocketing, and mortgage rates are up, so promoting homes with a Fortified Roof, Fortified Silver Home, or Fortified Gold Home certification makes perfect sense. Your clients get a roof or whole home designed to withstand extreme weather events, hurricanes, high winds, and more.

Tell your clients not to wait for the next natural disaster to find themselves wishing they had a Fortify Roof. Call Diversified Energy today and we will connect you with an experienced Fortify Evaluator and provide a competitive quote to install the required spray foam to qualify for Fortify Roof certification.

Financing is available and can be combined with other Diversified Energy home performance and energy efficiency improvements.

Why Sell FORTIFIED Homes

Fortified Homes Sell At A Premium Price

Do you have clients trying to sell their houses?

Did you know that FORTIFIED Homes can sell for up to 6%+ more than a non-FORTIFIED home?

Did you know that Fortified Roof certification stays with the home and is transferrable to the new owners?

Having a home seller Fortify their roof can be a huge selling point in the wake of Hurricane Ida. If presented with two identical homes, which one do you think a buyer would choose? Would they prefer the home that has a roof [or whole house] designed to handle extreme weather, high winds, and hurricanes, or the one that doesn’t?

Call Diversified Energy today and we will connect your client with an experienced Fortify Evaluator and provide a competitive quote to install the required spray foam to help your clients qualify for FORTIFIED Roof certification.

Financing is available and can be combined with other Diversified Energy home performance and energy efficiency improvements.

Fortified Retrofit: 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. 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.

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
