Tando Composites, a division of Quebec City, Quebec-based Derby Building Products announced that Riverhead Building Supply has become the latest “flagship dealer” for Beach House Shake and TandoStone.

Riverhead will serve as the flagship dealer of Tando products on Long Island, New York wher eit operates 13 locations. The prodealer also operates an additional six locations in New England, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

“Tando brings game-changing brands to the building market with authentic composite alternatives like Beach House Shake and TandoStone, and we’re excited to offer them to our customers,” said Greg Goodale, director of purchasing at Riverhead Building Supply.

Goodale added that Beach House Shake stands out in coastal areas, because of the authentic shades that provide homeowners the look of natural cedar shingles.

The partnership with Riverhead is the third “flagship” agreement Tando Composites has made in the Northeast in recent months. Last month Arnold Lumber was named as the flagship dealer in Rhode Island with Mid-Cape Home Centers taking on the designation in January.

“At a time when our dealers tell us that natural cedar shingles are in short supply, we are thrilled to provide Riverhead with Beach House Shake as a solution for their customers,” said Ralph Bruno, CEO and president of Derby Building Products. “We know that Long Islanders love their cedar shingles, now with Beach House Shake they have a revolutionary shingle that will stay looking “perfect” from the day it is installed for the life of their home.”

Beach House Shake has been designed to stand up to rough coastal environments.

Approved by Miami-Dade County for High-Velocity Hurricane Zones, Beach House Shake’s composite technology delivers authenticity along with architectural precision, Tando Composites said. The manufacturer also notes that each shingle is unique and nstalls more than five times faster than natural cedar shingles – saving time and money on installation costs. 

The shakes are 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.

TandoStone, a composite stone product, is lightweight and provides ease of installation without the need for masons, mortar, or adhesives.
