Meet Your Evaluator

Once you have selected your contractor, a FORTIFIED Evaluator will be assigned to work with you and your contractor to confirm the roof is completed per required FORTIFIED Roof™ standards.

What is the role of a FORTIFIED Evaluator?

FORTIFIED Evaluators are third-party contractors who have been trained to verify and document the construction process to make sure the inspection criteria set forth by IBHS is met. The evaluator will be onsite a limited amount of time and will rely on the homeowner and the contractor to provide some of the documentation required to apply for the FORTIFIED designation from IBHS. If IBHS awards the FORTIFIED designation, NCIUA will then finalize the grant.


Who assigns the FORTIFIED Evaluator?

Once the policyholder has been accepted into the Grant Program, IBHS will assign a FORTIFIED Evaluator to the policyholder to provide guidance throughout the entire process of replacing the current roof with a FORTIFIED Roof™. The FORTIFIED Evaluator works with the policyholder and contractor to successfully receive the FORTIFIED Roof™ designation.


When is the FORTIFIED Evaluator assigned?

The FORTIFIED Evaluator will be assigned once the policyholder has selected a contractor.
