When severe weather strikes, a FORTIFIED Roof keeps the wind and rain out, preventing a cascade of damage that can destroy your home and belongings. FORTIFIED Roof was specifically designed to prevent damage that commonly occurs during high winds, hurricanes, hailstorms, severe thunderstorms, and even tornadoes up to EF-2. No matter what type of roof you have—shingles, metal, or tile—the following FORTIFIED Roof requirements will make your home stronger. Gulf Coast Construction takes pride in offering Fortified Certified roofing solutions, setting the standard for superior resilience and protection. Our commitment to excellence goes beyond conventional roofing, providing homeowners with a Fortified Certified option that ensures unparalleled strength and durability.

Unmatched Resilience in Roofing

Gulf Coast Construction offers FORTIFIED Roof™ solutions engineered to withstand the most challenging weather conditions, providing a fortress-like defense for your home.

Stronger Edges

"Roof damage often begins when wind gets underneath the roof edge and begins ripping it away from the home. To help protect this vulnerable area, FORTIFIED requires specific materials and installation methods, including a wider drip edge and a fully adhered starter strip, that when used together create a stronger system."

Sealed Roof Deck

If wind rips off your roof covering, such as shingles, metal panels, or tiles, it exposes the wood beneath and allows water to pass through the gaps and enter your home. FORTIFIED requires roof decks to be sealed to prevent this type of water damage.

Better Attachment

"Instead of common smooth nails, FORTIFIED requires ring-shank nails, installed in an enhanced pattern, to help keep the roof deck attached to your home in high winds. In fact, using ring-shank nails nearly doubles the strength of your roof against the forces of winds."

Impact-Resistant Shingles

In hail-prone areas, homeowners are encouraged to opt for the Hail Supplement to their FORTIFIED designation. To achieve this added level of protection, shingles must score Good or Excellent on the IBHS Hail Impact Ratings.

Rigorous Certification Standards

"Our Fortified Certified roofs meet rigorous industry standards, ensuring that your home is equipped with a roofing system that exceeds expectations in both strength and performance."

Gulf Coast Construction adheres to the strict certification standards set by the Fortified Home program, guaranteeing that your roof is resilient and meets or exceeds industry benchmarks.

Comprehensive Protection

Choose FORTIFIED Roof™ for comprehensive protection. Our certified roofs go beyond the standard, offering a holistic defense against various threats, including high winds, hail, and water penetration.

Peace of Mind

"Our FORTIFIED Certified roofing brings more than just protection – it brings peace of mind. Rest easy knowing that your home is fortified against the elements with a roofing system that exceeds expectations."

Gulf Coast Construction's commitment to FORTIFIED Certification ensures your peace of mind, providing a roofing solution prioritizing safety and longevity.

In conclusion, when it comes to FORTIFIED Roof™ solutions, Gulf Coast Construction stands as a beacon of excellence. Choose us for industry-leading standards, unparalleled resilience, comprehensive protection, and the peace of mind you deserve.

I want to express my appreciation for the help Gulf Coast Construction provided in entering the claim for the hail damage to my roof recently.  The effort on my part was minor other than the initial call to the insurer and putting the claim in motion.  They handled all communication with the insurer in an attempt to capture all eligible damages associated with the claim.  The roof was changed in one day and clean up was excellent.  I couldn't be happier with the result.  I highly recommend Gulf Coast if you are considering a roof replacement.

Thank you to all involved with Gulf Coast Construction in getting this work identified and bringing it to a prompt and satisfactory conclusion.

Extremely knowledgeable and great at what they do. The team at Gulf Coast Construction and Restoration were great from beginning to end, especially when it came to dealing with the insurance company. I would recommend their services to anyone and everyone! They came out right away and were also able to complete the roofing job ahead of schedule.

Extremely well organized. Entire team began working as soon as they arrived. Tarps were spread to capture majority of debris. Clean-up was thorough. Final result exceeded all expectations. Thank you to all involved. Well done.
