Only the finest raw materials

From raw material selection to the final product, Maibec manages all activities in producing its exterior siding, allowing us to use 100% of each tree’s potential. Every shingle results from a rigorous selection and manufacturing process guided by the strictest quality standards. Only the best of every tree goes into our shingles, ensuring the utmost responsible use of resources as a whole.

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 precision and consistency essential for picture-perfect installations.

Perfectly squared at 90 degrees

To ensure quick and easy installation, we rely on laser control measurements to guarantee squaring consistency. And only those shingles that form perfect right angles at the base are allowed to bear the Maibec name. As a pioneer in squaring and rebutting, Maibec was the first in North America to offer such consistent quality. That’s why Maibec has been the preferred shingle of installers for 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 best process in the industry. 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. Extreme condition testing guides us in the development of stains that offer protection against the harmful effects of the sun, inclement weather and the natural environment. 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.

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 raw materials to packaging the final product, every step in the process is controlled, from the width and thickness of shingles to their colour and the quality of the stain application. Even the temperature that’s used to dry our shingles is carefully regulated. Quality from every angle, giving you total peace of mind. "
