And now I need the brand names

The Washington Post did a story on diminishing fire risks for those of us who live with such.

Who knew there were air vents that swelled shut in heat to keep embers out of attics and garages?

They talked about roof types, but not the one I already have a signed contract committing us to. I have questions. (On second thought, Professor Google says that foam roofs are highly fire resistant. Okay, that feels much better.)

Reading the comments, someone in the paint industry talked about fire-resistant paints, saying, “A few and I mean very few of high quality water based products are actually non-toxic and can pass stringent NFPA tests for smoke production, optical density of smoke and toxic output” and said they were the best for residential use. And that if you buy the cheap ones you have to do two coats and haven’t saved any money.

Since I’m getting my house painted after all the termite repair and roof work is done and I’d never heard of such a thing, I’m really glad I read that. Sometimes you have to know what to ask before you can ask.

And don’t you just hate it when you find out that the product you already purchased is NOT the better one that you should/could have gotten but didn’t know even existed???

Knowing what questions to ask is huge!
