Tando Composites announced that Mid-Cape Home Centers, a Division of US LBM, is a “flagship dealer” in Massachusetts for Beach House Shake composite shingles.

The largest building materials dealer covering Cape Cod and the South Shore with six locations, Mid-Cape Home Centers has supplied New England’s builders, remodelers, and homeowners with lumber and specialty building products for more than 125 years.

“At Mid Cape, we have served multiple generations on the Cape and surrounding communities since 1895 and we’re known for supplying natural cedar shingles - part of the beauty and charm of this region,” said Jack Stevenson, president of Mid-Cape Home Centers. “For the past several years, the demand of cedar shingles has outpaced the available supply.”

Stevenson said that Mid-Cape has researched alternative offerings to complement sales of natural cedar shingles. But it was also “paramount that the new product protects both the tradition and beauty of the Cape.”

“We were looking for a product with the undeniable appearance of bleached cedar shingles,” Stevenson explained. “Additionally, unmatched performance and ease of installation were ‘must haves’.” 

After years of evaluating many alternatives, Stevenson said that Mid-Cape is excited to select Beach House Shake as the brand that has the appearance, performance, and application ease for its customers.

Ralph Bruno, CEO and president of Derby Building Products — the parent company of Tando — noted that Mid-Cape’s commitment to Beach House Shake is a testament to the product’s beauty and durability.

“We’re honored to have Mid-Cape as our flagship dealer on the Cape. Consumer demand for Beach House Shake in this market has been extraordinary and Mid-Cape’s leadership and commitment will ensure it’s easy to buy,” Bruno said.

According to Tando,  Beach House Shake delivers the coveted charm and beauty of natural cedar shingles down to the last detail - with natural color variations, genuine saw cuts, and detailed grain patterns of natural cedar shingles. Its architecturally precise 5” re-squared and rebutted lines create individual shingles as unique as they are beautiful. 

And with the proven performance and durability of a composite, Beach House Shake stays looking like the day it was installed for years, backed by a “Beautiful Freedom 20-year limited warranty.”

Beach House Shake is available in four natural cedar shades: Atlantica, a silvery gray reminiscent of bleached cedar shingles; Sandcastle, a fresh white cedar; Hatteras, a deeper gray found in southern coastal regions; and Pacifica, a fresh western red cedar shingle.
