Beverly Hills’ dry and hot climate, seasonal Santa Ana winds, and topography increase the risk of homes and other structures being destroyed in wildfires. The Bel Air fire of 1961, one of the worst in city history with more than 450 homes destroyed brought about major changes in the city fire code.
Now homeowners with wood-shake roofs are facing a deadline to comply with a Beverly Hills ordinance passed in 1993.
“Beverly Hills passed an ordinance requiring residents to replace wood-shake roofs with fire-retardant roofing that is listed as a Class A assembly by July 2013,”explains Jeff Campbell, whose attention to detail and unmatched customer satisfaction has earned him a reputation as one of the top contractors in the Los Angeles area.
Between 1994 and 1998, nationwide there was an average of 4,200 wood shingle fires per year, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). A city staff report states 215 homes in the Beverly Hills area currently have noncompliant roofs.
A third generation contractor well known for constructing and renovating high end homes, Jeff Campbell Construction has expanded their business to accommodate clients who need to comply with the Beverly Hills ordinance before the deadline. “We have a highly skilled and qualified team of roofing contractors who can inspect roofs, provide valuable information to help homeowners fully understand what is and is not acceptable, and work with the city to help homeowners comply with this ordinance.”
While bringing older homes up to code, Jeff Campbell Construction’s highly specialized group of capable and responsible professionals can address all roofing issues including termite damage, dry rot, damaged fascia, gutter and downspout installation and repair, painting, and much more.
