Rain, wind, hail and sunlight can damage your roof in different ways—but the issues they create can still be mitigated, especially in a relatively healthy roofing system. Fire, however, is a different matter. It consumes and destroys, forcing you to get a premature roof replacement. But here’s the good news–reducing the risk of fires in your roofing system can be simple. The premier storm damage repair and restoration company, Redemption Roofing, shares how.
Deal with roof leaks immediately. A simple leak is enough to leave your home vulnerable to water damage. It would be nice if the problem stops there, but a leak can also increase the potential of roof fires. That’s because many electrical installations or wiring are located in the attic–the very first area affected by roof leaks. When these electric components are exposed to water, they might trigger a fire that can cause damage to your roof structure.
You’ll need to make sure that any roof leaks are handled ASAP. Redemption Roofing can help you with this. Our trained and experienced team has all it takes to perform roof repair work that allows for satisfactory results and leaves no room for mistakes. When you choose us for roof leak repair, expect the task to be completed perfectly right the first time.
Keep the chimneys clean. Listening to the fire crackling in the hearth as cold autumn winds blow outside–it paints a pretty cozy picture, doesn’t it? But before you use the fireplace, make sure the chimneys are clean and well-maintained. This way, you can get rid of the soot and other inflammable materials coating the chimney walls, helping lower the risk of fires.
Invest in fire-resistant roofing materials. By choosing materials with a Class A fire rating, you can ensure your roof has a better chance of resisting fires. Metal, tile, and slate are generally Class A fire-rated because they are non-combustible. Asphalt shingles may have the same rating if they are installed with fire-resistant roof deck protection or underlayment.
