Ludowici terra cotta shakes are in!
Wood shake alternatives from Ludowici are the best investment for your home and roof. Unlike other shake roof alternatives, Ludowici’s terra cotta roof tiles are walkable, noncombustible, and carry Grade 1 ASTM certification for less than 2% water absorption—the highest roof tile certification there is! Meaning your roof will easily survive freeze-thaw cycles for many winters to come. If you prefer the worn, aged look of a years’ old wooden roof, our skilled craftsmen can replicate warping without the wait.
- 75-year material warranty, including color, your roof is guaranteed to last a lifetime.
- The best in terra cotta roofing products in the United States for over 130 years.
