Reduce Losses From Water Intrusion

Water intrusion causes extensive damage to building interiors, furnishings and other content each year. IBHS reduces these losses through unique and innovative research.

How We Reduce Losses

IBHS researches variables that affect water entry into buildings during wind-driven rain events such as tropical storms and hurricanes. Insights from this research will inform IBHS FORTIFIED Standards as well as best practices and installation guidelines for relevant building components and equipment.
