Fireworks and Rooftops

class a fire ratingSparklers. Bottle rockets. Roman candles. It seems like fireworks have always been a key part of July 4th celebrations.

While colorful and exciting, fireworks can also cause severe problems when ignited near dry grass and trees. And, a big concern for those soaring sky-high fireworks is where they'll land.

With drought conditions prevalent in many areas across the country, a single spark from a firecracker landing on a real cedar roof can cause problems. Just as when sparks fly from wildfires and fall on roofs up to a mile away, firework sparks can have potentially deadly results.

For peace-of-mind now and in the future, consider the type of roofing on your house. Synthetic shake and slate tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes are fire-resistant. Even if you take a blow torch to our composite roofing tiles, you won't see the spread of flames (see a flame test video pitting real shake versus synthetic shake HERE).

That resistance to fire (along with impact, high winds, insects and algae growth) is a chief reason why many people invest in a DaVinci roof. Backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty, our Class A Fire Rated roofing materials are made to last ... and to withstand the sparks flying from both wildfires and July 4th celebrations.
