I want to paint or spray a product on the sides of a house with cedar shake siding and a torch down roll roofing roof that will act as a fire retardant.  Does any one know what products are good?  I have found some products on the internet including:

almost missed yur question....

despite all the fire retardents for shakes out there shakes here have been outlawed because of them being a fire hazard...

doubt you'll proofing..... you could buiid temp fire shielding for the duration of the roofing project.... sheet metal shields and fire blankets....

could ya fill in yur profile.... there may be some one her from yur neck of the woods that can help....

another thing to consider is that a lot of those fire proofing chemicals be some really unfriendly and nasty "stuff"....

and BTW... welcome to BT....
