NeXclad is the next generation of economical, small-format terracotta wall cladding products from Ludowici & Terreal North America. Manufactured in Southeast Ohio at the Ludowici Roof Tile plant from locally sourced raw materials, this small module terracotta tile comes standard with a 75-year material and color warranty.  From the early design stages, through a quick and simple approval and ordering process – our NeXclad tiles can get on site faster with reduced lead times in comparison to other terracotta cladding materials.


Available in (2) formats, a variety of surface textures, and boundless color possibilities, NeXclad is the go-to solution for exterior and interior design realizations. A variety of terracotta corner tiles are available with exact field tile color matching for a harmonious building envelope.
