How to prepare your home for wildfire
Get some wildfire risk reduction steps that can make your home safer during a wildfire.
The fire resistance* of metal roofing provides peace of mind to homeowners living in areas prone to wildfires. There are also proven methods to preparing homes for the devastating impacts of wildfires. For example, simply replacing wood chips with gravel, removing dead vegetation or ensuring items such as patio furniture stay away from the 5 ft zone around your residence (referred to as the “Immediate Zone”) can reduce your risk of ignition.
