Cedar is the most durable roofing material available.

Cedar ShakesWhen it comes to protecting your home, no other roofing material outperforms Western Red Cedar shakes. Mother Nature created cedar with special protective qualities, making it the smart choice among all the roofing materials available today.

A wood roof keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. As an insulator, nothing even comes close to the efficiency of cedar shakes. They have more than twice the insulating value of asphalt shingles, four times that of fiber-cement composites, and five times that of slate.

In terms of strength, once again, cedar is the clear choice. Most other materials, such as tile and cement composites, simply add weight to a roof. But cedar actually improves the structural stability of your home, while weighing as much as 75% less than the competition--something you'll definitely want in earthquake danger areas. And in wind tunnel testing, cedar roofing has endured winds in excess of 130 miles per hour.

Due to the natural recovery of wood fibers, cedar provides superior protection against hail, as well as thermal shock associated with freeze-thaw conditions. In short, cedar shakes provide protection that lasts, even in the most extreme climates.

Genuine cedar shakes outperform fake-shake imitations.

If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, then cedar shakes must be the envy of our competition. The natural beauty of cedar has been copied for years. In fact, cedar shakes are the most imitated roofing product ever made.

SnowBut with tile roofing products, breakage and excessive weight are safety concerns. Cement composites have only been around for a few years, and they often have problems. Some break down when exposed to the freeze-thaw conditions of the Midwest. Others fade in color, peel, or delaminate with exposure to the elements. And with asphalt, even the top-end highly textured laminated products simply don't last. But Meeker cedar shakes have withstood the test of time.

Warranted for up to 50 years against material defects, Meeker cedar remains the genuine choice for its aesthetic charm and proven durability. Cedar is also surprisingly affordable, which makes it an excellent value when compared to the cost, and especially the questionable performance of tile, cement composites, and asphalt.

Meeker treated shakes withstand fire and humidity.

Meeker cedar shakes optionally treated with FTX® fire retardant are safe in fire hazardous areas. FTX is the #1 fire retardant for cedar roofing and is approved by the strict code of the California State Fire Marshal.

Meeker also optionally treats cedar shakes with CCA preservative. CCA protects wood from high heat and humidity, prolonging the life of the roof.
