Whether you live in a wildfire-prone area or are just looking to keep your home safe and protected, building a fire-resistant home is a great way to protect your home and the belongings that are inside.

If you are looking to build a fire-resistant home, here are four things you need to keep in mind!
How To Build A Fire-Resistant Home
Use an ICF Foundation
Starting from the ground up, using an ICF material like The Perfect Block can greatly reduce fire risk for your home. The Perfect Block is a reliable foundation material and can prevent your home from catching fire when it’s exposed to extreme temperatures.
Armor Your Roof
While using fire-resistant materials in your foundation is vital, it’s important to not forget about the other aspects of your home. Armoring your roof can help you to create a home that won’t catch fire when exposed to extreme temperatures.
Choose Good Siding
In addition to your roofing, choosing durable siding like stucco, stone, or brick can prevent flames from getting into your home. While wood looks great, stone-based materials can protect your home when it matters most.
Choose Fire-Resistant Windows
Finally, choosing windows that are heat-resistant can prevent flames from getting in. The heat from a fire can shatter windows quickly, so choosing windows that are double-glazed and made from tempered glass can keep your home safe.
When building a fire-resistant home, it’s important to trust the materials you are using. At The Perfect Block, our sustainable products are trusted all over the US for their durability, fire-resistance, and pest-resistant properties.
