Fire-Damaged Roof in Thornton?

1/17/2021 (Permalink)

Fire Resistive Materials

Embers from fire pits and chimneys can fly a long way before landing on debris and igniting. SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton responds to fire damage emergencies in the Thornton area throughout the year, and according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), you can minimize the risk of having an ember start a fire on your property by installing fire resistive construction materials as follows:

  • ROOFING AND VENTS Class A fire-rated roofing products, such as composite shingles, metal, concrete, and clay tiles, offer the best protection. Inspect shingles or roof tiles and replace or repair those that are loose or missing to prevent ember penetration. Box in eaves but provide ventilation to prevent condensation and mildew. Roof and attic vents should be screened to prevent ember entry.
  • DECKS AND PORCHES Never store flammable materials underneath decks or porches. Remove dead vegetation and debris from under decks and porches and between deck board joints.
  • SIDING AND WINDOWS Embers can collect in small nooks and crannies and ignite combustible materials; radiant heat from flames can crack windows. Use fire-resistant siding such as brick, fiber cement, plaster, or stucco, and use dual-pane tempered glass windows.
