SPANISH TERRA COTTA ROOF TILE
The most popular profile in Ludowici’s product line, Spanish roof tile is prized for its simple, one-piece barrel design which provides a pattern of distinctive ripples across the surface of a roof. Often synonymous with clay roof tile, Spanish tile enhances virtually any style of architecture. Ludowici’s Impressionist Series of color blends applied on Spanish tile creates the most authentic look of old European roof tile.
MISSION TERRA COTTA ROOF TILE
Ludowici Mission tile faithfully matches authentic Italian, French and Spanish architecture as well as Southwestern Mission design. High profile barrels create distinctive shadows that change the look and feel of the roof as the sun moves in the sky making a striking statement of texture and style. The covers can be laid in straight rows or staggered and mortar boosted to produce a more rustic look for your home in Dallas / Fort Worth.
SHINGLE TERRA COTTA ROOF TILE
Ludowici terra cotta shingle tiles come in a variety of textures that help define the architectural style of each profile. Custom textures can also be applied to match historic applications or to meet a customer’s specific needs. Texture reduces glare reflecting off the tile and allows the true colors to show through. Many of the textures are applied by hand which allows each tile to have a unique, handmade appearance.
