Our roofs not only add beauty to our houses but can also be very functional depending on the type of roof that’s installed.
Most homeowners understand that their home’s roof is an essential part of the residence, providing both protection from the elements and helping to maintain a stable temperature. Unfortunately, many homeowners underestimate the importance of making sure they have fireproof roof materials.
If you are a resident of Calgary, AB, you might think fireproof roofs are not essential for you, especially for the regular weather in the zone. What you might not be considering is that many residential fires are not caused by high temperatures, but by man-made fires that spread across the entire house, either from the inside or the outside.
For example, winds in Calgary can carry sparkles from another fire that might end up in your house.
For these possible causes, Fortress Roofing offers the solution of installing fireproof roofs in your house. With almost two decades working with residents of Calgary, we have become their trustworthy roofing company because we care for the safety of the people living under each roof.
The Secret Behind Fireproof Roofs
The secret behind a fireproof roof resides in choosing the right material.
There are many types of roofing materials in the market to choose from, each with its own set of characteristics that make them the perfect fit depending on the objective of each roof.
Homeowners not living in areas prone to wildfires rarely consider fire resistance when weighing their re-roofing options. With traditional roofing materials, your home is only as fire-resistant as your neighbors. There are countless stories of house fires igniting the homes of their neighbors, again due to wind-blown embers.
In the light of this situation, Fortress Roofing installs metal roofs as the perfect and multi-beneficial option for homeowners in Calgary, AB.
Metal tiles are made of a material that does not ignite when on fire with a fire-resistant barrier. Additionally, this material is non-corrosive and sit firm on houses, making them resistant and durable for houses exposed to constant water currents, such as snow melting.
Moreover, metal sheets can be designed to look like cedar shake or other materials giving the house an elegant aesthetic look while remaining fire-resistant.
