MAKE HOME STRONGER

Homes should be designed for the environment they're built in, and here in Southern Oregon that means accounting for wildfire. To address this complex goal we've created a holistic approach we call Fire Strong Designwith both construction and landscaping strategies.

FIRE STRONG DESIGN

Our approach focuses on two main offerings we believe create the most dramatic effect on a home's likelihood of ignition and offer the most value to homeowners: firewise home upgrades and fuel reduction services.  Together these strategies bring structures up-to-date with their environment and create properties that look and feel Fire Strong.

FUEL REDUCTION

Create and maintain defensible space

Fuel reduction reduces the intensity of fire your property could experience and limits where fire can grow.

HOW DO HOMES IGNITE?

Our approach starts with understanding how homes can ignite and working backwards to prevent ignition

Radiant Heat

High intensity fire nearby  ignites building materials without contact

Fuel reduction 0-100 ft

from the home

Direct Flame

Flames make contact  with building materials and transfer to the home

No combustible material within 5ft of the home

Embers

Embers enter the building and ignite dry and hot fuels inside

Siding repairs, vent protection, clean gutters

Senate Bill 762

With the passing of SB 762 in June 2022, Oregon homes within the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) identified as high or extreme risk may be required to create defensible space as well as install firewise retrofits within the next year. This makes our Fire Strong approach all the more relevant to modern times as legislation catches up with what communities in Southern Oregon have needed and observed for years.

FIRE-RATED VENTS

Block embers from entering your home

A hot and dry attic and home interior is highly vulnerable to ember ignition.  Keeping embers out is essential.
