About Us

Our Story

Charles Castelo Sr. first invented the fireproof house cover in the late 1990’s. Charles Sr. would discuss ways of making the product and how it could save people’s homes with his son Charles Jr. After the worst wildfire season on record in 2017/2018 Charles Jr. decided to jump in and help his father engineer the product. Priority one was to find materials that could withstand high temperatures, direct flames, and high winds. Taking ideas from various sources a working concept was created, and UrbnTek was born in 2019.
