Gordon Wildfire….

Our thoughts and prayers go out for the victims of the Gordon wildfire last week. Thank goodness no one was hurt in the largest forest fire to hit northern Wisconsin in 33 years.  The fire, which began Tuesday the 14th, destroyed 17 homes and 30 other structures.

In addition to the loss of these homes and structures,  the Gordon area is one of northwest Wisconsin’s most beautiful areas and a popular vacation area.  Wildfires like this one are rare in our area but considering fire-resistant exteriors for your home is always a good idea no matter what part of the country you live in.

Our Stone-Coated Steel Roofing carries a class A fire rating,  the very best in the industry.  One of the best examples of Gerard’s superior resistance to fire is the 1983 Oakland, CA neighborhood Fires.  The only homes that survived the fires had Gerard Steel Roofing installed.

In addition to the Oakland, CA fire,  the 2003 San Diego, CA fire is another good example.  Take a look at Bob and Micheline Gerson’s story from this 1999 Atlanta Fire:

Bob Gerson is certain that his Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof saved his historic home. He told every TV crew and newspaper reporter the same thing. The four-alarm fire started in #34 and burned it to the ground, spread to #38 (next door – the house where PRINCE OF TIDES was written) and seriously damaged it before fire crews brought the fire under control. Their actions and his Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof were able to stop the spread. Despite the intense heat from the fire next door, just feet from Gerson’s home, his house suffered little damage. The fire tried to enter through the soffit under the eaves, a common entry point for fire. The Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof denied the fire any access. Apart from scorched paint and some burn marks under the eaves, the house was undamaged. Two subsequent rainstorms proved Mr. Gerson’s written assertion that the Gerard Roof had saved his home. No water entered the attic.
We all hope that fires like the Gordon, WI wildfire last week never happen close to our homes but with a Bjorkstrand Metal Roof, you can sleep easier knowing you have superior protection from fire.  Call for your free estimate today,  we are booking up fast,  reserve your spot on the calendar to get the LAST ROOF YOU WILL EVER NEED!
