East Village Home Damaged by Flying Embers?
Our local San Diego City, South West team is a trusted leader in fire damage remediation services in East Village. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), explains that windblown embers can travel up to five miles ahead of a burning fire. Here are some tips from the NFPA for preventing windblown embers from entering attics and crawl spaces through 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, soffit eave construction is preferred to open eaves.
Opt for a ridge that is rated to resist wind-driven rain. These vents have an external baffle at the vent inlet.
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.
