In regard to wildfires, make sure your business is not constructed with wooden roof shakes. Old shake roofing and even new shake roofing burn well, putting your business at direct risk. Moreover, it is instrumental to box in the soffit (underside) of your eaves, which is the portion that creates a roof overhand. This way, the eaves will not create open spaces in which embers can ignite and start a fire. Of course, natural fire sources such as lightning, and extreme heat and winds should also be considered when incorporating fortifications.
