Vent Inspection Services
Brandguard offers a range of vent services, including vent inspection.
Have you ever wondered why one home survives a wildfire more successfully than another? It can come down to many reasons, but the less-damaged home often had more fire protection in place.
Wise decisions regarding materials, design options, and home improvements can increase the odds your home will survive a future wildfire. The good news is that outfitting your home to withstand fire and ember exposure doesn’t have to be costly. And once you understand the exposures your property experiences during a wildfire, you can take steps today to protect it.
Fire-Resistant Vents Protect Your Home Against Wildfires
One step you can take to protect your home is upgrading existing vents with new vents that are California State Fire Marshall approved to withstand ember storms created by wildfires.
Most home loss during a wildfire occurs due to direct flame contact, embers, or radiant heat igniting a part of the house. Many people are surprised to learn that embers cause the majority of wildfire home ignition. When embers land on your home’s roof, porch, or deck, they often find an opening where they can enter the house.
Brandguard Fire- and Ember-Resistant Vents
Vents allow air to circulate in your attic and moisture that can cause degradation to escape. Embers can easily slip through roof, attic, and foundation vents, where they ignite the contents and set the house afire.
Brandguard offers a range of fire- and ember-resistant vents for both retrofit applications and new construction, including:
- Dormer vents
- Undereave/soffit/bird hole vents
- Foundation vents
- Gable end vents
- Sub-flashing vents (to retrofit low profile roof vents)
Home Vent Inspections
Keeping your home safe from wildfires involves more than having stucco siding or a metal roof. Smaller details like ember-resistant vents can also play a critical role in protecting your house, family, and belongings.
Brandguard offers vent inspection services that ensure your home remains protected against California’s devastating wildfires. We inspect your existing vents and recommend alternative solutions that are fire safe. And while we happily provide vent installation services to all our California customers, you can also buy our fire-rated products online and install them yourself.
