Quality from every angle. Maibec Eastern white cedar shingles are the industry benchmark for quality. This reputation is the result of our unique know-how and strict quality controls at every stage of the manufacturing process.

Only the finest raw materials

From the raw material selection to the final product, Maibec controls all activities in the production of its shingles, enabling us to use 100% of each tree’s potential. Every shingle is carefully selected and manufactured according to the strictest quality standards. Only the best of every tree goes into our shingles, guaranteeing the most responsible use of the resource.

Better cuts mean better grades

Maibec shingles are famous for their consistent surface finish and uniform angle cuts. Every Maibec shingle is individually cut and graded according to our strict quality standards. Only equipment maintained at peak performance and operated by experienced specialists can achieve this high level of precision that’s essential for picture-perfect installations.

Perfectly squared at 90 degrees

To ensure quick and easy installation, we rely on laser control measures to guarantee resquaring consistency. And only those shingles that form perfect right angles at the base are allowed to bear the Maibec name. As a pioneer in resquaring and rebutting, Maibec was the first in North America to offer such consistent quality. No wonder Maibec has been the preferred shingle of installers for so many decades.

Ideal drying for ideal shingle staining

Our controlled drying process relies on an advanced technique that we have perfected over the decades. Shingles are carefully controlled before and after drying, and brought to the ideal moisture content level for optimal stability and stain adherence.

Factory-applied stain

Bar none, the industry’s best procedure. Every Maibec stain is carefully developed in close partnership with top stain manufacturers according to our own factory application process and the inherent properties of the wood we work with. To ensure the wood is entirely sealed, stain is applied to all six faces of the shingle in a highly controlled environment. The stained shingles are then dried in a high-intensity kiln to ensure optimal stain adhesion and durability. Extreme conditions testing enables us to develop stains with protection against the damaging effects of the sun, inclement weather and the natural environment.

Quality control built on 40+ years of experience

Maibec shingles are manufactured according to compliance controls that combine the industry’s best practices and the know-how of our seasoned specialists. From selecting the wood to packaging the final product, every step in the process is controlled. This includes the width and thickness of shingles, their color and the quality of the applied stain. Even the temperature that’s used to dry our shingles is carefully regulated. Our dedication to quality means total peace of mind for you.
