Fire-rated vents are crucial for the safety of homeowners in wildfire-prone areas. While this alone is enough reason to install them, it’s also important to consider how they can impact your home’s appraisal value.

Below, Brandguard Vents will discuss how having fire-rated vents installed at your California home can affect home appraisals.

Fire-Rated Vents & How They Impact Home Appraisals

Wildfires can wreak havoc on a home in an instant. When wildfires occur and homes are damaged from flames, embers, and smoke, the appraisal value of that home will inevitably decrease. Fire-rated vents are designed to better protect homes from the effects of wildfires, so having them installed before a fire strikes will help preserve your property and the value of your home.

Even if your home is not ravaged by a wildfire, installing fire-rated vents can pique the interest of potential buyers. Added safety precautions will ultimately raise the value of your home; without them, it will likely be an action the next buyer will have to take once purchased, and that cost will be accounted for in the buying process. 

Fire-rated vents also comply with Assembly Bill 38, which orders sellers to provide documentation that their property meets defensible space requirements in areas prone to severe fire damage.

The Importance of Fire-Rated Vents for California Homes

As mentioned above, fire-rated vents are crucial for protecting your home during wildfires and for their role in the home appraisal process. These vents prevent embers, smoke, and other harmful elements from entering your home and damaging your property and health.

Fire-rated vents will increase safety measures and provide homeowners with a greater sense of peace. Additionally, they will meet building codes, so look into installing them today.
