As of late last year, more than two million acres of forest have burned across the state of California. As a homeowner, you need to take serious considerations of fire safety and protection if you want to protect your family. Although your home can’t be completely impenetrable to fire, you can still make it highly fire-resistant with the right kind of protection. With a reputable home performance specialist, California Energy Consultant Service can also provide you with a free consultation on climate-based solutions that make energy efficiency possible for your home.
Not only do we provide the best siding products for your home, but we also offer replacement doors, windows, HVAC, siding, insulation and more. Below are details of two of our most popular siding products. Call us today to learn more about their benefits!
LP® SmartSide® Siding
Consisting of a mix of wood fibers, adhesive resins, water-resistant waxes and zinc borate, this product is one of the best siding solutions available. LP SmartSide siding is also listed by the California State Marshals office as an acceptable product for use in high fire hazard areas that are specified in chapter seven of the California building code.
Although LP SmartSide contains organic material, it still meets California’s code requirements for fire resistance when used in combination with LP FlameBlock® Fire-Rated® OSB Sheathing. LP Smartside products are also recognized in energy assessment certification programs around the country, making it an attractive product in making your home eco-friendly!
James Hardie® Siding
Our James Hardie fiber cement products also have several benefits, but they’re especially well-known for being highly non-combustible. The fiber cement material is made from cellulose fiber, Portland cement, water and silica, which is naturally fire-resistant and contributes to the durability and moisture resistance of James Hardie products! And as an added layer of protection against fire hazards, James Hardie siding also has a flame spread index of zero and a smoke-developed index of < 5, which also gives more time for first responders to act in an emergency.
