You might THINK you want an irresistible roof in St. Augustine, but when it comes to fire you don’t! Guess what: Roofing that can provide fire protection for your home will not only provide more safety, but can possibly lower your home insurance premium too!
Fire Resistant Roof 101: When it comes to fire resistance, roofing material is separated into three classes known as the fire rating. The standards of this rating system were developed by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., which is a widely known, global safety science company. Take a look:
- Class A -This is the highest rating. A class A roof is able to withstand major exposure to fire which originates from outside of a home.
- Class B – This rating means that a roof can stand up against moderate outside fire exposure.
- Class C – This type of roof can withstand light fire exposure from the outside.
Fire resistant roofs can be made out of a variety of materials. However, there are roofs made out of untreated materials and it is recommended that you replace them with rated materials.
