Exterior Gaps

Help to keep your home safe from ember attacks during bushfires by sealing up any exterior gaps or cracks bigger than 2mm. Make sure to also fix any broken roof tiles and enclose any open eaves, roof gables or raised floors, like decks, where embers can get trapped. Other openings like windows, doors, ventilators and skylights can be fitted with metal fly screen mesh. You can also consider installing ember-proof metal screens and solid screens to help improve your home’s resilience to bushfire risk.
