Created to complement TandoStone®, the #1 brand of composite stone, Architectural Sill and Sill Corner are architecturally accurate and offer the realistic look and feel of natural stone. Delivering beauty and functionality, Tando’s Architectural Sill features a forward slope to direct water away from the structure, offering superior moisture management. Lightweight and easy to cut, the products can be installed by one person using standard tools. Architectural Sill Corner can be used as a corner, or builders can cut the pieces on the left or right side to act as an end cap to terminate a run.
“We’re delighted to earn a Golden Hammer Award for Tando’s Architectural Sill and Sill Corner,” said Ralph Bruno, CEO, Derby Building Products. “These products were created to offer easy installation along with a beautiful, natural transition for TandoStone.”
Architectural Sill’s versatile design features an integrated nailing flange which can be repurposed as a starter strip for simplified installation beneath windows and breakaway spacers that can be used as “shims” for products that require additional clearance.
Perfect for adding curb appeal and rich textures to any exterior, Tando’s Architectural Sill and Sill Corner are available in three rich colors: Pewter, Raven and Sable. Each Architectural Sill measures approximately 30” in length and corners are 5” on each face. All have an exposed height of 2.5”.
