Siding forms an integral part of your home exterior. It not only accentuates the aesthetic appeal of the property but also serves as a protective shield against harsh weather conditions and pests.
As a homeowner when you set out to plan your exterior wall cladding, some aspects count the most. The safety and stability of the structure are certainly one of them. When talking of safety, fire risks are the most devastating threats that can cause immense damage.
A small fire when gets uncontrollable can turn into a monstrous blaze in a few seconds, bringing down your home to ashes. Well, the idea here is not to scare you but to encourage you to consider first things first. And, safety is the foremost thing that must be the top-of-mind priority.
How can sidings counter fire-related risks?
The best way to make your home exterior sidings safer is by choosing fire-safe materials.
Let’s confess it; a fully flame retardant or completely non-combustible material is not a practical option. But, well-insulated materials primed to withstand fire can improve the safety quotient of your property. A fire-rated exterior siding won’t make your home fireproof but will keep give you sufficient time to take corrective measures.
Two important parameters define the performance of fire-safe siding materials -their combustibility and smoke production. If the material is combustible, it will contribute to the spread of fire to other parts of the building and in case of poor quality material, toxic smoke will further aggravate the problem.
To ensure your sidings and wall exterior claddings can withstand fire risks and keep your home safe from unexpected mishaps invest in the right material. Fibre cement boards are one of the suitable fire-retardant cladding and siding options that you must consider. The flame spread index and smoke-developed index of this material successfully match the safety standards.
Coming under the category of green building material, the fibre cement boards also offer excellent insulation against heat, moisture, and termites.
