    Is The Roof On My Home Fire Resistant?

    roof questions fireproof roof

    Americans are dealing with wildfires every year, which destroy homes and wreak havoc, resulting in billions in direct property damage.

    A good roof, with fire resistance properties, can protect a property by preventing the fire from spreading. Besides, it is less likely to collapse during a fire and destroy the building`s structure. So, if you are looking for ways to improve the safety of your home, especially if your live in an area prone to wildfires, installing a fireproof roof above your head is one of the best choices you can make.

    But first, check the fire-ratings of roofing materials with roof company Southlake specialists, as your roof may actually already be fire resistant.  Roof assemblies and cover materials are classified on how far the fire will spread should it comes in contact with the roof.

    There are A, B, or C ratings of roofing materials, class A being the most fire-resistant, and class C including roofing materials with less fire-prone qualities. So, if you have a roof made of concrete/ clay tiles, fiberglass composition shingles, slate or metal shingles, you already benefits from the best fire protection, as all these materials are class A. On the other hand, if you have a wood roof, you may want to replace it with a more resistant option.
