IBHS Fortified Inspections

Insurance Institute for Building and Home Safety (IBHS) Fortified Inspections

This code-plus new construction program helps homeowners and home builders create stronger, safer houses from the ground up. From earthquakes and hurricanes to severe winter weather and wildfires, the program’s standards are designed to increase a home’s resistance to whatever natural hazards threaten the area where the house is located. IBHS created the FORTIFIED Home™ program to help strengthen homes from hurricanes, high winds, hail, and severe thunderstorms. Protect your home from natural disasters by using FORTIFIED Home construction standards and methods. IBHS FORTIFIED goes beyond emergency preparedness and disaster preparedness to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home has been FORTIFIED to offer disaster protection.

IBHS is creating stronger, safer, and more resilient communities. As a licensed Fortified Evaluator I can assist your architect in the designing of the home, while inspecting it during the construction process.
