Wildfire Defense To Help Your Home

11/5/2021 (Permalink)

No home is fireproof, but by taking precautions, you can help prepare your home.

Here are some ways to make your home and property more resistant to wildfire:

  • Remove dead vegetation from plants and lower branches from tall trees.
  • Keep the gutters, roof and outdoor spaces free of debris like leaves and twigs.
  • Clear out window screens and attic vents.
  • Move firewood at least 30 feet from the house.
  • Use roofing materials with a Class A fire rating (the highest).
  • Install metal angle flashing at the edge of the roof.
  • Box-in eaves that have an open construction (i.e., where rafter tails are visible).
  • Install metal flashing where wood decking meets the siding (if the siding is combustible).
  • Replace single-pane windows with multi-pane, tempered glass windows with screens.
