The roof is the largest surface of a house that is exposed to the elements, including fire sparks. In order to protect your property and family it is wise to choose the right fire resistant roofing material for your home. If you are concerned about fire safety you may want to consider replacing your existing roof with a material that is more fire resistant.
When wildfires and brush fires spread to homes or businesses, it is often because burning branches, leaves, and other debris are buoyed by the heated air. They are then carried by the wind and land on rooftops where they start fires.
