Derby Building Products announced the full line of Tando products, including TandoStone, Beach House Shake, and TandoShake, will be distributed by Coastal Forest Products’ Charleston, S.C., branch. New Hampshire-based Coastal Forest Products, a building materials distributor, has expanded its Iron Woods tropical hardwoods facility into a wholesale supply business for multiple brands. Coastal will distribute Tando products in a 150-mile radius from Wilmington, N.C., to all of South Carolina.
“We’re excited to partner with Derby on these innovative exterior products, especially with shingles so prevalent in this market,” Wes Robichaud, the South Carolina sales manager at Coastal Forest Product, said in a news release. “With authentic realism and labor savings, the new technology behind Beach House Shake as a composite shingle makes it the finest product on the market today.”
Composite shingle Beach House Shake delivers on the aesthetics of natural cedar, according to Derby Building Products. The product mimics the natural color variations, saw cuts, and detailed grain patterns of real cedar. Beach House Shake’s 5-inch re-squared and rebutted lines create individual shingles. According to Derby, TandoStone is preferred by siding installers for its lightweight and one-person installation. The product allows contractors to install a stone product without the need for a mason, scaffolds, or adhesives. TandoShake is available in five profiles and colors to complement numerous architectural styles.
“Tando’s partnership with Coastal has a track record of performance throughout the Northeast region and we couldn’t be more excited to expand on that partnership with Coastal’s South Carolina branch.”
Coastal Forest Products is a distributor to an extensive dealer network throughout New England, eastern New York, Long Island, and the Carolinas.
