Compared to concrete, clay tiles are more colorfast. They are also more durable. An installation of clay roof tiles can be expected to last 100 years. (The average lifespan of concrete roof tiles is about 50 years.) Because they wear so well over time, clay roof tiles add significantly to a home's resale value.
The Ludowici legacy of old-world craftsmanship started 400 years ago in Rome, Italy where the Ludovisi family became famous for its expertly crafted clay roof tile. As European demand grew, the family moved to Germany and their name was changed to the Germanized Ludowici. In the late 1800's, Carl Ludowici moved the family and his old-world craftsmanship to America establishing a terra cotta roof tile company in Chicago, Illinois.
Since 1888, Ludowici has been protecting buildings large and small with applications ranging from commercial to university, government to military, bungalows to mansions, locally and globally. Ludowici terra cotta roof tiles are the sensible and sustainable building product choice. Every Ludowici terra cotta tile is produced using proven technology creating a finished product which meets the needs of both yesterday and the future.
