Arnold Lumber serves builders, remodelers, and homeowners from four Rhode Island locations in West Kingston, Wakefield, Bristol, and Westerly.
“Beach House Shake is the authentic composite shingle that offers the look of natural cedar shingles that will stay looking like the day they were installed for the life of the home. We are thrilled to have Arnold Lumber join us to make Beach House Shake easy to buy for their customers,” said Ralph Bruno, CEO and president of Derby Building Products, parent company of Tando Composites. “Whether looking for the undeniable appearance of bleached shingles or the rich look of western red cedar shingles, Beach House Shake delivers what the market is demanding.”
