What is Fireblocking?
Installed within concealed spaces within your home or business, Bostonian Remodeling, Inc. fireblocking is designed to mitigate the risk of fire and fire-related gases spreading throughout a structure. By subdividing concealed spaces within a home or business, fireblocking closes off and separates the spaces, effectively fireproofing your investment.
Reasons to Fireblock
Installation of fireblocking closes off concealed spaces within a structure, forming a barrier between spaces inside walls, soffits, stair stringers, exterior, and interior moldings, and the spaces between combustible materials and the interior of a structure's walls and floors. It is difficult for fire departments to get to and extinguish fires in spaces that are concealed which allows the hidden spread of fire and damage. Bostonian Remodeling, Inc. has 20 years of experience properly designing and installing fireblocking in homes and businesses, helping slow the spread of fire and ultimately providing enough time for egress by occupants. Trusting the experienced and highly trained professionals at Bostonian Remodeling, Inc. to fireblock your property can mean the difference between damage to a single room and damage to an entire structure.
