Tando expanded its Cape Cod Perfection line with shakes in a “char” color, which gives them a charred wood appearance—a look rooted in a centuries-old Japanese wood-preserving process known as Shou Sugi Ban. The new shakes have a 5-inch exposure with crisp edges. Tando claims that Cape Cod Perfection shakes are impervious to moisture and are suitable for ground contact and roofline applications. The shake collection also has received a notice of approval from Miami-Dade County for high-wind and high-impact resistance, and reportedly meets all severe weather rigorous testing criteria. tandobp.com
