  • Accompanied by a safety-focused MSDS.
  • Labelled specifically for cedar roof treatment or endorsed by the manufacturer.
  • Water repellent, UV inhibitors, and/or certified wood preservatives.
  • Backed by a manufacturer’s guarantee.

Avoid products that:

  • Provide exaggerated promises.
  • Claim fire resistance without certification.
