The Fortified Process

What We Do

Let us help you build a safer home

Do you want a stronger/safer home for your family?

Are you interested in building A Fortified home but don’t know where to start?

Your first step is to find a licensed Fortified evaluator. That is where Knockout comes in. For years, Knockout has guided homeowners through the Fortified process to make their homes stronger. Specializing in working with custom home builders and roofers, Knockout brings the knowledge and expertise you need to ensure all Fortified standards are being met for your home.

As the homeowner, it is your choice how involved with the Fortified process you would like to be.

For homeowners that wish to be more involved, Knockout can show you each step we take to achieve the Fortified standard. Whatever your preference, your Knockout evaluator will be available to you anytime a question or concern arises.
