Fire Resistant Roof Decks: Protect Your Home From the Rage of Fire

Some say fire is as friendly as the other classical elements: earth, wind, and water. This is due to its advantageous characteristics which deemed life incomplete without its existence. Although beneficial and helpful in many levels, fire can take lives especially when taken too much granted. As a perfect example, the recent news from Minnesota.cbslocal.com reported a dire fire incident which injured several people due to negligence:

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Three people were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation after a house fire Saturday morning in Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Fire Department received a report of a fire on 35th Avenue South at about 10:30 a.m.

Fire officials say the blaze appears to have started from someone smoking in the house.

All occupants made it out safely.

Similar to other elements such as water and air, utilizing and controlling fire in a proper way can prevent such disasters from happening. In fact, there are many ways in preventing fire occurrences at home and one way is installing and equipping the house with high quality fire resistant housing materials in your home, specifically on your roof deck.
