Fire Protection Provided By Metal Roofing
The summer of 2012 has seen a drought hold much of the United States. And, when hot and dry weather prevails, unfortunate wildfires will grab hold and spread, destroying everything in their paths. Well, almost everything. ABC News recently has done a couple of stories which have shown metal roofs providing fire protection.
Metal roofing provides many benefits including durability, energy efficiency, wind resistance, and low weight. But another reason that many homeowners choose metal is for its fire protection. It does not ignite from burning brands which may land on it. This can provide great protection from rapidly spreading wildfires.
