Press Release: Derby Building Products’ Composite Stone Cladding, TandoStone, Defines New Product Category and Addresses Contractor Issues

Quebec City, Canada— Derby Building Products’ TandoStone™, the number one brand of composite stone, is defining this new product category as a solution to the ongoing labor shortage and jobsite costs. Launched by the same team behind iconic decking category-defining brands Trex and AZEK, TandoStone features realistic design, proprietary technology, easy installation, moisture resistance, and an expansive color pallet.

Debuting at the IBS Show, TandoStone’s TruGrit technology offers a unique matte texture that gives each panel a realistic low-gloss appearance and the rough, gritty feel of real stone. It takes TandoStone to a new level of realism in looks and texture.

Impervious to moisture, TandoStone is perfect for ground-level installations in any climate and complements a wide range of siding materials for on-trend mixed material looks. Without the need for special tools or heavy equipment, it’s also safer and easier to install as an accent on taller walls.

TandoStone is available in two styles: Stacked Stone which features a dry stack profile without grout lines between the stones and Creek Ledgestone which emulates the rugged look of hand-picked stone with grout.

“With a shortage of skilled labor, the intuitive, easy installation of TandoStone addresses many jobsite issues without sacrificing looks,” said Ralph Bruno, Derby’s CEO. “While pros already love the lighter weight and faster installation, TandoStone also meets consumers’ aesthetic demands with its proprietary Tando TruGrit™ texture.”
