Fire Resistant Materials and Your Thornton Roof

Residential fires account billions of dollars in damage each year in the United States. With all the recent wild fires around Colorado, it’s a good idea to choose an optimal roofing material for fire safety. Here are a couple of great choices for fire protection for your Thornton Roof:

Fiberglass-based asphalt shingles – The most economical of all residential roofing materials, fiberglass-based asphalt shingles offer excellent fire resistance when installed with fire code compliant underlayment.

Clay Tile – Traditional clay tile is noncombustible as well as very durable. It provides a Class A fire rating, which is the highest fire-resistant rating available. When they are installed, make sure that the openings in the barrel-shaped kind are sealed so embers can’t penetrate your roof.

Recycled-Rubber Tile – Recycled rubber tire is both an economical and environmentally friendly option when it comes to choosing a fire resistant material for your Thornton roof. It’s manufactured using a highly effective fire retardant and underlaid with a fire-resistant barrier which gives is a Class A fire rating.

When it comes to your Thornton roof, you want it to be as durable and as safe as possible. These materials are optimal for fire resistance and keeping your family and home safe. Contact The Roof Doctor today to find out what material is right for your roof.

3 Misunderstood Thornton Roofing Myths

When it comes to repairing, purchasing or replacing a roof, there are many misconceptions. It’s important to get the facts. Here are three popular myths, debunked by your Thornton roofing service:

Myth #1: Cool roofs are an energy efficient option in warm climates, but don’t make sense in cooler climates.
Did you know that cool roofing ends up saving you money in both warm and cool climates because solar radiation in the summer is five times greater than the winter? Energy savings from cool roofs are always more than from black roofs used for absorbing heat.  

Myth #2: Flashing only needs to be replaced when a new roof is installed.
Flashing is a metal material that is meant to divert water away from roof openings such as vents and pipes. Depending on the installation and rigors flashing has gone though, it can outlast a roof or fail and damage a roof. Make sure your flashing is checked around every six months to ensure there is no damage to the flashing itself or to the materials around it.

Myth #3: It’s fine to cover an existing layer of shingles with a new layer.
Since building codes say this is ok, it’s a very common mistake made. When replacing shingles, it’s important to take into account the sheathing under the tiles. Rot, age, leaks, or other damages may have affected the state of your sheathing. The best way to make sure that this isn’t happening is to strip away old shingles before installing new ones.
