Flying Flames & Embers are the Most Common CulpritAs wildfires rage nearby, raging winds blow flames and embers towards homes. These flying firebrands attack homes where they are most vulnerable -- at the unprotected vent openings in the walls and attics. The openings need to be there to ventilate the structure (allowing moisture to escape year-round and preventing mold from growing inside). Yet research has shown that the greatest source of property loss is due to windblown firebrands entering structures -- even more than from direct contact with flames.Brandguard Flame & Ember Resistant Vents by Brandguard Vents Inc

- Prevention and Preparation
Here are six ways to prepare your home before the next storm hits.
- Is your roof in good shape?
- Your shingles should be nailed down properly and all secured together.
- Replace any missing shingles immediately.
- Make sure your garage door is secure.
- Sometimes this means hiring a company to inspect your garage door to ensure it is properly secured and functioning well.
- Secure all outdoor items.
- Grills, patio furniture, trampolines, etc. These items can cause a lot of damage if the wind is strong enough to pick them up.
- Ensure your gutters are properly secured and clean them out regularly.
- Clogged cutters can create water damage to your house. They are also more likely to break in a high wind storm if they are weakened by heavy debris.
- Are your windows storm proof?
- Installing storm proof windows can make a big difference in protecting your home from high winds and hail from a storm.
- If you don’t have storm proof windows, consider installing steel or aluminum shutters on your windows or sliding doors to protect them from flying debris.
- Remove or trim/maintain trees around your home.
- Trimming your trees of dead wood can help prevent large branches falling during a wind storm.
