1. Comprised of pans and covers with a fine machine scored surface, Mission Tile provides a distinctive, rolling pattern on the roof. It can be applied at regular or random exposures for increased versatility. When applied using the "Ludowici Tight Method," the covers ride close on the pans to protect against wind lift and driving rain. Straight Barrel Mission Tile, with its cross-breaking strength of over 1,000 pounds, is one of the strongest and most durable tiles in the Ludowici offering.

Tapered Mission Tile is available in 16- and 18-inch lengths, while Straight Barrel Mission Tile is offered in 14-1/4-, 16- and 18-inch versions. As the length of the field tile increases, the number of pieces per square decreases, reducing the cost of materials and installation.

2. The Rolando Ramirez Family can truly be called a “Tile Family”. With my father Rolando (President), my mother Esther (Treasurer), my oldest sister, Esther Lara (Vice-President), my older brother, Joe (Vice-President), and myself, Rolando Jr. (Corporate Secretary) all involved with, and owners of, Mission Tile, Inc. It seems like my siblings and I have all gone from teether to tile rather quickly. We must have know all about ceramic tile, way before we could even spell it. But let me regress, and start this little story from the beginning. Pop got his start as a tile contractor, installing residential ceramic tile, way back in March of 1961 in his home town of Mission Texas. Hence, Mission Tile was born. In the early days, all his jobs required supplying material and labor and actually selling the final finished tub enclosure or living room floor. By the early 1970’s, the business had grown and he moved his base of operations to the neighboring city of Edinburg. At this time he began purchasing more and more domestic ceramic tile products and coordinating crews of tile installers to do the installations. In 1982, he took a big leap. He dissolved his installation operations and began to import ceramic tile products from Spain and Italy

Dachziegel or "Straight Barrel Mission"-Dachziegel

"straight barrel mission" refers to a particular type of roofing tiles, and I'd leave the English name. As a generic translation, Dachziegel would be sufficient, espec. since that particular style is the prevalent style used on roofs in Germany.

straight barrel - gewölbt, zylindrisches Gewölbe

Having only 134 pieces of tile per square, the Straight Barrel Mission style is a tremendous labor saving product. It is used widely on residential, commercial, military and institutional buildings. M. C. A. 's Old Mission Blend 301 is a very popular blend and throughout time will keep its attractive appearance. Standard colors, blends and custom colors and blends are available.
