Universal Supply, a division of US LBM, has partnered with Tando Composites to be the flagship dealer for Beach House Shake, an authentic composite shingle, in the Southern New Jersey market. As the Beach House Shake Flagship dealer in that area, all Southern NJ Universal Supply locations will be trained and merchandised, with the Lakewood and Pleasantville locations being the primary stocking hubs.
"Beach House Shake is changing the market with its composite shingle technology, as a clear substitution for natural cedar shingles. We've been watching the incredible success of Beach House Shake on Cape Cod through Mid-Cape Home Centers, our sister US LBM company," said Barry Keenan, product line manager - roofing and siding, Universal Supply Co. "And we're excited to fill the demand for Beach House Shake for the iconic homes along the New Jersey shore. We align well with Tando Composites' go-to market strategies and look forward to providing the leading brand of composite shingle to solidify our market leadership."
According to a release from Derby Building Products, Beach House Shake will remain "perfect" from the day it's installed for the life of the home. Beach House Shake's composite technology provides realism and architectural precision and boasts an appealing appearance, performance, and ease of installation. Beach House Shake is certified for High Velocity Hurricane Zones by Miami-Dade County.
"For years, the demand for natural cedar shingles has outpaced the supply. We're excited to partner with Universal Supply to bring Beach House Shake to their customers who demand the authentic look of natural cedar shingles," said Ralph Bruno, president and CEO of Derby Building Products, Tando Composites' parent company. "With this Universal Supply partnership, Beach House Shake will be easy to buy for the exploding demand in in South Jersey."
