FortiShield® Warranty

A New Level of Protection and Security

The Fortifiber Building Systems Group® offers the FortiShield 15-Year Warranty Program, a comprehensive 15-Year limited warranty on our flashing and weather-resistive barrier systems. In the event of a product failure with most manufacturers, the product warranty covers only the cost of replacing materials. Should a product covered by the FortiShield Warranty fail, Fortifiber pays for the cost of the materials and labor to mitigate the problem, without the hassles and fine print of most warranties.
