Cedar Shake Fire Resistance

Simulated Shake RoofingA house fire is one of the worst things that can ever happen to anyone. If you and loved ones are lucky enough to get out of the house in time, you may suddenly find yourself homeless with most of your treasured items destroyed. It's devastating, to say the least, so we of course do everything possible to prevent fires from happening in the first place. One of the basic means of preventing fires is by following fire regulations in the building code for any given area.

In many places, roofing materials have to comply with a certain fire rating. For this reason, it may be ill-advised to use traditional, untreated cedar shake in these areas. Although wooden materials like shake look beautiful and have been a prized roofing material for centuries, they are a lot more flammable  and can't compare to the Class-A fire rating of our polymer roof tiles.
