Tando® Adds to Composite Offering with Beach House Shake®, The Authentic Composite Shingle

Building on proven expertise, Tando introduces composite technology to its architecturally precise 5” shingle, Beach House Shake, the authentic composite shingle. Composite technology is recognized for providing uncompromised realism, durability and longevity and has revolutionized exterior products such as decking, roofing, lap siding, and TandoStone, the #1 brand of composite stone.

Consumers desire natural cedar shingles, as they love the iconic look of a cedar shingled home with unique individual shingles. However, untreated cedar shingles discolor quickly with unsightly and uneven dark spots. To overcome discoloration, cedar shingles are commonly painted. While coatings offer protection, they cover up natural cedar’s subtle nuances and beauty. These painted shingles result in monochromatic sidewalls. Additionally, natural cedar shingles are time intensive to install, in limited supply and require constant upkeep.

These are just some of the reasons Beach House Shake, the authentic composite shingle, is the perfect substitution over natural cedar shingles.

“The market has been demanding a shingle product with the unique, individual and natural variations of untreated cedar that will stay looking fresh - like the day it was installed. With Beach House Shake’s innovative composite technology, we have reached a new level of uncompromised realism and architectural precision. Like natural cedar each individual shingle is unique with strikingly realistic grains and saw cuts,” said Ralph Bruno, Derby’s CEO. “It’s a tremendous stride in authenticity. The most common question our customers hear is ‘Where did you get that beautiful cedar and how does it stay looking new?”

“This is a bigger story than just being an alternative or low-maintenance product,” noted Wes Robichaud, Sales Manager of Coastal Forest Products, a leading LBM distributor based in Bow, NH and Charleston, SC. “Beach House Shake is just a better product overall - beyond natural cedar shingles or polymer shakes.”

“This new standard of composite shingle has obvious benefits to coastal regions where we’re seeing explosive growth on the eastern shoreline from Maine down to the Carolinas, with Long Island and the Cape leading the way,” noted Bruno. “However, it isn’t just for coastal installations. Inland, we see Beach House Shake replacing cedar shingles as well.”

A 5-inch re-squared and rebutted shingle, Beach House Shake is available in four natural cedar shades: Sandcastle, a new white cedar; Atlantica, a silvery gray reminiscent of a New England cottage; Hatteras, a deeper gray found in southern coastal regions; and Pacifica, a new western red cedar shingle. www.beachhouseshake.com
