The FORTIFIED Roof System stands as the pinnacle of roofing systems available in the market today. Developed by FORTIFIED Building Systems and made in the United States, this system is engineered to withstand the harshest weather conditions in the country, including tropical storms and hurricanes.
Here are the key elements that make the FORTIFIED Roof™ System an exceptional choice for your home:
The drip edge of a roof — the part that extends beyond the walls of your home — is a critical aspect of a building’s design that helps control water flow to protect the underlying wood and the house interior. However, this part of the roof can be susceptible to wind damage. The FORTIFIED Roof™ System mitigates this risk by incorporating a wider drip edge and a specially bonded starter strip. These elements combine to create a more resilient edge that can withstand winds up to 130 mph. This sturdy design helps to protect your roof and home during severe weather events by reducing the chance of wind uplift at the roof edges.
The roof deck, the surface upon which roofing materials like shingles are applied, is a vital part of a roof’s structure. Traditionally made from materials like plywood or OSB (oriented strand board), roof decks can be vulnerable to water damage if not properly maintained. The FORTIFIED Roof™ System addresses this issue by sealing this critical area with a proprietary material blend, which ensures a tight, watertight barrier against rain and snow while preventing moisture buildup within your home. This specially engineered seal is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, including hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards, without degrading over time.
The method of attaching the roof to the home can make a significant difference when facing high wind forces. Rather than using traditional smooth nails that can loosen under stress, the FORTIFIED Roof™ System employs ring-shank nails installed in an enhanced pattern. This attachment method substantially increases the strength of the roof’s bond to the house, nearly doubling the roof’s resistance to wind forces and making it far more likely to stay intact during severe weather events.
In regions where hailstorms are common, your roof needs to be prepared to withstand these potentially damaging events. The FORTIFIED Roof™ System rises to this challenge by offering shingles that have undergone rigorous hail-resistance testing. These shingles are composed of innovative materials that outperform most others when it comes to withstanding the impact of hailstones, reducing the potential for damage and subsequent repair costs.
Roof flashing, the material that directs water away from critical areas of the roof like joints and seams, is a crucial element in preventing water infiltration. The FORTIFIED Roof™ System takes flashing design to the next level by using a continuous piece of flashing that wraps around vulnerable structures like chimneys and vent stacks. This design eliminates potential gaps that can occur with traditional, separate pieces of flashing, providing a superior seal against water intrusion.
Opting for the FORTIFIED Roof™ System from Louisiana Roof Crafters means investing in a higher level of protection against severe weather.
