With all the wildfires that happen in the western United States, it is good to think about FireWise principles when building or remodeling your property. The exterior of your home as well as your outbuildings and your lot or acreage can benefit when FireWise principles are used.

Texas Forest Service has a great pdf on Fire Resistant Materials for Home Repair and Construction
