Retrofit Improvements: Fire Retardant Wood Shingles or Shakes

During a wildfire, or an adjacent building fire, roof coverings are exposed to ignition due to their large area and orientation. Leaves or dead vegetation collected in gutters can be easily ignited by embers, spreading flames to roof coverings and other roof components. The flames can subsequently propagate into the interior of the building, resulting in substantial damage or even total loss of the building.
