Don’t leave your roof vulnerable during a bushfire

Preparedness, maintenance and good planning are the key to saving property and life in the event of a bushfire.

Your roof may prove to be a major weak point of your home during a bushfire. Ill-maintained and damaged tiles, gutters and roofs allow embers to ignite flammable materials and enter roof gamps as small as 1.8 millimetres, further igniting timber and other materials in a building.

Research conducted by the Country Fire Authority1 of Victoria after major fires indicates that up to 80% of house losses are due to ember attack, and your roof is one of the most vulnerable areas of your home to ember attacks.

When a bushfire hits, it ‘s the worst time to be on your roof trying to patch roof tiles or clean out gutters full of debris and leaf litter. Maintenance and repairs must be done regularly prior to bushfire season to ensure your home is in the best shape to stave off a bushfire and ember attack.

  • Replace any damaged roofing and seal any gaps
  • Repair damaged or missing tiles on the roof
  • Replace all broken and damaged tiles
  • Clean out all rubbish and leaf debris from gutters

Modern Roofing Restoration can restore your damaged roof to help defend your home against bushfire attack. Installing Modern Gutter Guards can stop against leaves and debris building up and potentially fuelling fires starting mainly from embers falling onto your rooftop.Preparedness, maintenance and good planning are the key to saving property and life in the event of a bushfire.
