The owner of Fortified Inspections was very quick to respond to my inquiries about their service. They were on time for all appointments and very professional. They answered all of my questions about the fortification process. When all work was completed at our home, they got in touch with us quickly to get the certificate promptly. I don't believe you will find a better company in this area to do this part of the fortification process. Thanks for all of you help.

Derek did an amazing job with our roof inspection. He was very knowledgable and professional. Derek took many photos and showed us how and where our roof was compromised. He showed up several times during the roof installation and ensured that we received a great quality roof. We HIGHLY recommend this company when looking for an inspector on your roof!

Grants are available to homeowners in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana that will help pay for the cost of a new roof for your home. While we cannot guarantee you will receive a grant, we will make sure you know when its time to apply.
