The elements can take a toll on your roofing system in different ways, but your roofing system is created in such a way that it reduces damage from them, protecting you for the years to come. However, when it comes to fires, it’s a totally different story. It delivers immediate, irreversible damage that can also put your own safety at risk. Here are some tips to help you reduce roofing fire risks.
- Clean Your Roof Regularly
Leaves and other debris can pile on top of your roof. While it seems like a minor issue, it can actually increase the chance of roof fires occurring. This is because leaves and other debris are flammable. A simple act of cleaning your roof regularly goes a long way in terms of keeping your home safe from fires.
- Invest In Fire-Resistant Roofing Materials
Did you know that not only are roofing materials tested for weather resistance, but also for fire resistance? Your best option is to pick a Class A fire-resistant roofing system that offers great protection against fires. Don’t settle for anything less than this since it ensures your safety as well.
- Clean Your Chimney Regularly
Every time you use your chimney, combusted materials like soot and debris get stuck on your chimney lining. These materials, along with other organic debris, are flammable, increasing the risk of ignition and sending sparks up your roof. As such, make sure that your chimney is regularly cleaned for your safety.
