Shingle Product Lines
Cedar shingles come from the heartwood of the Western Red Cedar tree and are thinner and shorter than shakes from the same tree. Meeker's cedar shakes are hand-split on one side and sawn on the other, while cedar shingles are sawn on both sides. Meeker sells several types of roofing shakes, including:
- Genuine Classic: hand-split
- Genuine Classic Heavies: a thicker version of the Genuine Classic
- Premier Select Medium: have straighter grain, so they lie flatter
- Premier Select Heavies: a thicker version of the Premier Select Medium
Meeker shakes meet standards of three recognized building code organizations: International Conference of Building Officials, Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc., and Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. They are also inspected for quality by the independent National Evaluation Service to ensure conformance to the Uniform Building Code and the International Building Code standards.
In 1942 Townsend Meeker invented a new process to manufacture hand-split cedar shakes. The Meeker family still owns and operates the company in the Pacific Northwest.
Meeker offers several warranty plans that are all transferable if the home is sold. The 40-year covers 18" custom-cut medium and heavy shakes, Genuine Classic Mediums and Genuine Select Mediums. The Meeker Genuine Classic Heavies and the Premium Select Heavies come with the 50-year warranty.
Before purchasing any roofing product, be sure that you understand all of the terms and conditions of its warranty.
