Insurance savings

Homeowners will save on their home insurance. The state of Alabama has mandated savings rates on the wind portion home owner’s insurance. A FORTIFIED Home ™ roof can provide a savings of up to 35% on your wind insurance.

Higher Home Value

On a home that is valued at $200,000, that is a $14,000 increase!
