MyStrongHome is a part of the National Energy Improvement Fund, a  benefit corporation with a mission to strengthen communities in coastal areas. We work with a sister non-profit organization called the Foundation for Strong Homes. Together, we provide home upgrades that are independently certified and may lower your homeowners insurance premiums. We also help our customers secure financing for those improvements from one of our lending partners. We are dedicated to developing innovative, proven and fully certified programs that improve community access to critical resources needed to withstand future storms.


MyStrongHome partners with insurance companies that offer discounts for FORTIFIED homes or comparable mitigation measures. Discounts and eligibility vary by insurer. Savings generated by these discounts can offset the cost of your new roof.


All participating construction contractors have been carefully selected for their attention to quality, professionalism, and experience with FORTIFIED construction. Contractors do not get paid until your house gets certified.


MyStrongHome uses Disaster Smart to inspect 100% of the homes we fortify. Disaster Smart is the leading inspector in the region, and their team of evaluators possess decades of combined experience.


MyStrongHome is part of the National Energy Improvement Fund (NEIF). NEIF provides simple, transparent and fair fixed rate financing for energy and resiliency for work performed by NEIF-Approved Contractors. 

NEIF is a  Certified B Corporation, meaning we are among a group of companies that has been called ‘the highest standard in socially responsible business.” B Corps exist to create value for all of their stakeholders, not just their shareholders.  

NEIF is a U.S. Department of Energy Home Improvement Expert Partner.
