Fire-Resistant Roofing Types

Loss to residential fires is a serious risk. In Maryland, many families have suffered as a result of house fires.

Just under $130 million in property was lost to residential fires in Maryland in 2014 alone, and loss of contents that same year added up to more than $36 million. Additionally, between 2010 and 2014, 324 people lost their lives to house fires.

Investing in fire-resistant roofing can help you to protect your investment in your home and its contents, and help you to better protect your family in the event of fire.

Fire-Retardant Roofing Shingles

There are few different kinds of shingles that are fire-retardant. The most popular of these are composite asphalt glass fiber shingles and synthetic roofing shingles.

Composite asphalt glass fiber shingles are low-cost and long-lasting. They are also simple to install, which makes them even more economical for homeowners who will pay less in labor compared to other roofing materials. They are coated with colored mineral granules to help increase their performance. For this reason, they are a designated Class A material, denoting their solid performance in fire resilience.

Synthetic roofing shingles are another great choice, made of eco-friendly materials that are inexpensive and incredibly resistant to weather as well as fire-retardant.

Fire-Rated Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is becoming increasingly more common in homes across the country due to its unique look and the fact that it comes in a range of colors and patterns. This roofing choice is lightweight, resistant to fire, and simple to install, and it can increase the curb appeal of your home.

Additionally, when installed correctly and treated with the right materials, metal roofing is also rated as Class A for fire safety.

Fire Resistant Clay, Slate & Concrete Tile Roofing

Shingles or tiles that are created out of natural rock-like materials are great options for protecting your home from fire as well as extreme weather. They look amazing and can be the perfect touch for your home if you are creating a specific overall aesthetic.

These roofing materials are very heavy, however. Slate in particular may require special installation and materials to make sure it is properly reinforced.
