• A cedar roofing company built on hard work, dedication and family...

Top Quality Cedar

Whether it’s the experience sourcing and harvesting logs since the 1940s, or the quality cedar products sourced from our trusted network, top quality cedar is the heart of our business. All of our cedar roofing and siding products which are harvested from our own logging operations are PEFC Certified, meaning they abide by the highest environmental and reforestation standards. This ensures we will have what you need now, as well as what you'll need in the future.

Industry Leading Fire Safety

With Watkins cedar roofing and siding you can rest easy knowing our products offer exceptional fire safety. In fact, we are the only company in the world that offers a Pressure Impregnation Fire Retardation Treatment system for cedar shake and shingle roofing that is recognized by the International Code Council (ICC) and the California State Fire Marshal (SFM). If you live near a fire hazard zone you can have confidence that your home is protected from an encroaching fire.

Value Added Service

Even though our company has grown exponentially since its beginnings, we are still a family business at our core. When you work with us, our values – Loyalty, Ethics, Friendship and Professionalism -- come through in everything we do. You get the personalized service of a ma-and-pa company backed by a large magnitude of technical and sales experience. Many of our current customers have been with us for decades, and we look forward to building the same lasting relationship with you.
