Can I Protect My Ingleside Shore Home From Windblown Embers?

Burning embers are shown We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration services in Lake County.

Our team in Northwest Lake County has the training, equipment, and experience to restore fire damage in Ingleside Shore “Like it never even happened.” Windblown embers can travel up to five miles ahead of a burning fire. Here are some tips from the National Fire Protection Association for preventing windblown embers from entering attics and crawl spaces through vents:

Inlet Vents

Gable end vents and other vent openings are vulnerable to windblown embers when the face of the vent is perpendicular to the wind flow, while embers are less likely to pass through vents with a face that is parallel to the wind flow. Therefore, soffited eave construction is preferred to open eave.

Outlet Vents

Opt for a ridge that is rated to resist wind-driven rain. These vents have an external baffle at the vent inlet.

Turbine Vents

Turbine vents also help keep embers out, but you should attach a piece of 1/8 inch mesh to the bottom of the roof sheathing at the opening for the vent.
