Derby Building Products entered a distribution partnership for TandoStone, Beach House Shake, and TandoShake with Rocco Building Supplies, a wholesale building materials distributor. Harrisonburg, Va.-based Rocco will distribute the full line of Tando products to dealers in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

“We’re excited to partner with Rocco Building Supplies, a best-in-class distributor providing residential construction solutions to customers in the Mid-Atlantic,” Michael Morris, vice president of sales for Derby Building Products, said in a news release. “Rocco has a long history of outstanding service and is well positioned to serve the exploding demand for Tando products. All of Tando products, with their proven performance and time saving benefits, are a perfect fit within Rocco’s portfolio of value-added branded products. This partnership ensures the market will have even easier access to TandoShake, Beach House Shake, and TandoShake products.”

TandoStone offers lightweight and one-person installation without the need for a mason or adhesives, increasing speed, efficiency, and cleanliness on the jobsite, according to Derby. Beach House Shake is a composite shingle, offering low maintenance and high performance, backed by a 20-year limited warranty. TandoShake is available in five profiles and on-trend colors to complement any architectural style, according to Derby.

“We recognize the growth opportunities in exteriors and Tando products are part of the solution to meet that demand,” Kevin Kunowsky, president of Rocco Building Supplies, said. “Customers want to enhance curb appeal and Tando offers great exterior cladding solutions that offer unmatched realism. We’re excited because our extensive network of home centers and lumberyards have been asking for this and now we can deliver.”

Tando is owned by Quebec, Canada-based Derby Building Products.
