Small changes to your home can reduce wildfire risk by up to 40%, and structural and vegetation improvements combined can lower wildfire risk by up to 75%. Furthermore, losses prevented can be much bigger (e.g. 5 times greater) when compared to a highly flammable environment.
Our team of experts can conduct a risk assessment to ensure your property is held at the highest standard from CALFire and the NFPA.
We utilize the same Fire Retardants used to fight wildfires as the ones dropped in the Fire Department’s airplanes (without the red dye). This gold standard fire retardant is safe and effective to apply to vegetation.
We assess the defensible space, combustibles around a home (home ignition zone), fences, decks, building shape, walls, roofs, roof vents, eaves & overhangs.
The construction materials, design elements, and neighboring landscaping all play a role in a home’s potential to withstand a wildfire. Homes that are constructed and built to wildfire-resistant standards are less vulnerable to wildfires and are more likely to survive one. The Home Ignition Zone includes a component called home hardening.
