Concrete roofs are fire resistant, but how credible are roof tile companies when they say that these roofs resist fire? Actually, there is this thing called fire rating system applied to roofing materials. Class A rating means that the roof can withstand extreme exposure to fire that comes from sources outside the building. Class B rated roofs are those that can only resist moderate exposure to fire that comes from an outside source. Class C ratings are for roofs that can hardly resist exposure to fire that comes from an external source.
After several tests conducted to roofing materials, it is proven that concrete roofs belong to the Class A rating. They don’t catch fire from neighboring houses; therefore they can truly protect you and your home.
It is even resistant to other disasters like hails and storms, as evident in most Asian and European infrastructures. Concrete roofs were made to last a lifetime if only properly installed. A yearly inspection of your roof is enough to ensure that they are still in good condition.
If you are planning to choose concrete as your roofing material, you will not put your hard-earned money to waste because as you have read, concrete roofs are fire resistant.
Roofs installed with concrete tiles are the way to go. All you need is good cement, water, quality river sand, and you’re in business.
