LudoSlate: The most natural, longest-lasting slate roof substitute available, Ludo Slate is made from the finest quality clay. Offered in the same thick slate roof texture with a 3/4" thickness, it comes in natural slate colours and blends and weighs almost half the weight of old-fashioned slate, allowing for installation on almost any roof.
LudoShake: The most natural, longest-lasting cedar shake substitute available, Ludo Shake is made from the finest quality clay. Offered in natural shake colours and blends, it has an authentic shake texture and unlike real shake, it is non-combustible and has the highest Class A fire-rating.
Lightweight: Clay and traditional slate roofs typically require structural approval or modifications to support their weight. LudoSlate and LudoShake are made of the same finest quality clay as Ludowici's extensive roof tile catalog, but their thinner profile, wave-rib backing and a special oven firing technology allows them to only weigh 598 lbs/squre - within the limit of most buildings in Ontario.
Durable & Permanent: Despite its light weight, LudoSlate and LudoShake have a 550 lbs breaking strength, allowing walkability. Natural slate and shake weather over the years, giving homes different colours. All Ludowici products have a permanent finish that is fired onto the tile surface at 2,100 degrees, creating a colorfast, permanent finish warranted for 75 years and guaranteed never to fade or chalk.
