1. METAL ROOFS HAVE A VERY HIGH MELTING POINT
Bushfires can roar to temperatures of 1326 degrees Celsius when they reach their peak. Fortunately, stainless steel has a higher melting point: 1363 degrees Celsius. In fact, metal roofs are classified as non-combustible, meaning they will not spark or catch fire.
Technically, concrete tiles and terracotta tiles also qualify as non-combustible, but they can damage easily and require more frequent maintenance than metal roofing. With its high melting point and reliable strength, a metal roof offers sure protection against bushfires.
