Ludowici offers a wide range of barrel tiles, so called because of their convex barrel-like shape. The tiles are divided into two varieties based on their design origin – Spanish and Mission – and they are fully customizable.
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 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.
