It's not always pretty before we receive it, but here's another group of tile that just isn't very common anymore; Ludowici Light Weight Interlocking Old Type Tile (LWIOT). Green with a rough weathered surface texture. We NEVER charge extra for the lichen or natural growths on the surface. =)

These LWIOT tiles were produced by Ludowici prior to their current, more standardized version known as Lanai. The differences are subtle but will throw you into fits if you're trying to intermingle the two profiles.

LWIOT: 13-1/4" x 8-3/4" x 7/8" thick ROUNDED butt end

Lanai: 14" x 9" x 7/8" thick SQUARE butt end

Do you need to talk about some tile? Me too....ALWAYS!!!!

We have recovered a handful of these original Ludowici dull green French tile roofs over the past couple of months (with another coming next week).

The French profile is one of the most widely used tiles in North America, along with Spanish "S" tile and it is one of Ludowici's most durable profiles. French is a larger format interlocking tile, being 16-1/4" in length and weighing a beefy 7.7lbs. per tile.

We commonly carry several colors and glazes such as natural red, dull green (as shown), Brookville Green, and some specialty colors (matte white and Mediterranean Blue). Along with field tile, we have most common matching trim tiles available as well ( #102 hip, #206 ridge, rakes, end bands, etc).

Taking a closer look at the Ludowici Closed Shingle tile we just brought to our tile yard here in Northern, IL. First, it’s no secret that Ludowici is hands down my absolute favorite clay roofing tile. In close to a quarter century, I’ve simply never seen any other product that comes close to the quality, the uniqueness, and the aesthetic appeal (brand new or 120yrs. old). The Closed Shingle tile, commonly referred to as the “Book Tile” due to it’s square, 8” x 8” exposure on the roof is one of Ludowici’s most durable tiles. Over the past several years, Ludowici continued production of these tiles (as opposed to custom production) and now calls them “Morando Closed Shingle”.

As shown in my images, this dull green (old Forest Green) Closed Shingle tile is in superb condition. There is zero sign of any deterioration, spalling, or any indication that this tile will fail any time of the next….50, 75, 100yrs?? Still rock solid! When I have the opportunity to buy or reclaim Closed Shingle tiles, I generally ALWAYS bring them in. These tiles are a staple of the historic roofing industry and will be for decades to come.

I have also added several pages from Ludowici’s historic roofing tile book! Such a treasure trove of great information.

If you have a need for any of this Ludowici Closed Shingle tile, we stock several colors such as red, true fire flash, dull (forest) green, light dull green, Brookville Green, light glazed green and various textures such as smooth, heavy wire scored and some weathered. Call 800-699-5695 or email me at [email protected] if you have any questions, comments, material needs, or have materials for sale.

As we slog through winter, we’re gearing up for a very busy spring and summer. We are actively procuring materials from roofing contractors and homeowners throughout the country. We’ve packed our warehouse with semi-loads of material and have numerous loads “on deck” awaiting shipment to our facilities and no end in sight.

We have a refined process for reclamation which we’ve found is fair and amicable; deliver the material to our facility, repack all items completely (while discarding the unusable products), document the products, inventory, and send the final purchase documents to the seller for final pay out. In over 30yrs of salvaging and reclaiming roofing systems, we’ve found this method is best.

If you wish to offer your products to us, please contact me at [email protected], or call the office at 800-699-5695.

The seasons may change, but our commitment to quality persists year-round.

Thank you for the review, Susan! https://hubs.la/Q02hHSv70

Still enjoying my photo edits for my emailed newsletter. Shown here is one of the finest slates you can get. This is a North Country Non-Fading Black Slate! The product is one of only a couple true non-fading black slates produced in North America. These slates are super smooth and sleeve in appearance, retain their solid black color throughout their lifespan, and importantly are available at a very reasonable price and lead time. Are you struggling with high import costs? Fluctuating material costs daily? Better check out this NCS product! It’s solid!!!



The folks at North Country did NOT pay me to plug their slate. It’s just. That. Good! Let me know how I can help you new slate roofing needs today.

As shown here, this is a leftover New Ludowici Antique tile measuring 12” x 7” x ½” thick and has a roughed surface texture. The color is the base clay red with an ebony mist spray applied. We have nearly 25squares available as well as correlating trim tiles. This is a great opportunity to pick up this fantastic tile at a reasonable price and with little lead time (1-2 weeks for delivery).

Working on a Feb 2023 emailed (to be sent conveniently on ). I'm thankful to have had just enough time to finally start working with Photoshop. Really digging how these tiles are turning out.

BTW, we have approx. 10-15sqs. of this beautiful Murray (Cloverport, KY) Flat Slab Shingle tile available right now. These tiles measure 13-1/4" x 6-1/4" x 3/8" thick overall and the colors are a nice range of reds, deep browns, tans, etc. A nice earthy range.

We offer a vast inventory of previously installed/weathered roofing slates that tend to closely match your existing slate roof much better than new slate.

Reclaimed slates typically encounter decades worth of natural weathering and subtle color tone changes that are not prevalent in a new slate. When matching your client’s roof, it’s best to use a similarly aged slate to ensure proper aesthetic appeal.

Other clients prefer a reclaimed slate over a new slate due to the “instant aged” look and feel, various color blends, thicknesses, and age.

Contact me with your reclaimed slate request(s) today.

Every year I have the opportunity to review and potentially offer a new roofing product. Sometimes it’s “the next best thing” and sometimes it’s something that’s been there under my nose the whole time.

Early this year I brought in some Riverstone Slate (phyllite).
Riverstone is imported and distributed by SSQ and originates from Argentina.
I generally don’t sway too far beyond the norm, but this is some amazing slate. It has a fantastic dark gray/green color, somewhat rustic texture, and it rings like a slab of steel.

I look forward to helping you navigate your new slate needs.
