The wildfires that are ravaging Texas illustrate the importance of having a fire resistant roofing material. Roofing contractors can help you select the type of roofing material that will look nice on your home or commercial property while also providing protection against possible fire damage.
Today’s safety standards require all roofing materials to have a minimum degree of fire resistance. Asphalt shingles and wood shingles can be treated to be fire resistant, while other roofing materials like slate and metal are naturally fire proof. Check with the manufacturer and consult a roofing contractor or roofing installer for specifics.
