How to Choose the Best Fire Retardant Spray

Particularly for homeowners in California, finding the best way to protect their home from a wildfire is a serious matter. We're here to help you in this search! What you're looking for is a fire retardant product that will keep your home as safe as possible, for as long as possible. Fire retardant products work by creating a barrier against flames. This is what you need. The question is, which one?

Find the Right Fire Retardant Spray

When picking the right paint, it is important to note the key differences between fire resistive and fire retardant coatings. When your home and personal property are on the line, it’s key to choose the proper spray for your project.

There are a few key factors you need to look for when fireproofing your home. When looking at a product and wondering if it's right for your situation, ask yourself these three questions:

Is the paint non-toxic if it comes in contact with flame?

Does it prevent flame spread effectively?

Does it produce smoke?

One we recommend you pay special attention to is Contego HIGH SOLIDS Fire Retardant Paint/Primer for Steel. Specially designed for structural steel, the new Contego High Solids formula means you can get the same great results using 20% less paint! A thinner coat means it takes less time and money to get the desired fire protection. In real use cases, we've seen it require one-half to perhaps one-third as many coats as other sprays. It must be applied with a spray gun, so we encourage you to either purchase one at the same time or soon before your spray arrives.

Contego Fire Retardant Paint & Primer - Multi-Purpose Intumescent is another fantastic option, because it checks all the right boxes. It’s non-toxic, low VOC, reduces flame spread, and doesn’t produce smoke when heated. This spray is perfect for homes in dangerous areas prone to wildfire. It provides exceptional protection from heat and fire while also giving you a smooth, thin, decorative finish. Basically, any home can be protected from flames with this top-tier Contego spray.
