Clay tile roofing is becoming more popular for homeowners across the Midwest. Clay tile roofing offers a nod to elegance and refinement that you don’t get with other roofing materials. This style is beautiful, unique, and durable. While something this luxurious isn’t a necessity, many homeowners are moving toward it for the sophisticated, Mediterranean feeling it evokes – and the compliments it elicits from the neighbors! 

Shamrock Roofing and Construction is your go-to contractor for a Ludowici tile – or any other tile – roof in St. Louis. Whether you’re building a brand new home or just want to improve the exterior of your home with a roof replacement, you can’t go wrong with Ludowici tile. Here’s why we say that.

A Rich and Reputable History

The Ludowici story began over 400 years ago in Rome, Italy. The roof tiling craft has been passed down from generation to generation in the Ludowici family. The family’s distinguished terra cotta tiles serve as the focal point for many famous buildings across Europe and the United States. Today, you’ll find that all Ludowici factories have been consolidated into one location. The tiles are now crafted in New Lexington, Ohio.

Pleasing Aesthetics and Customization

If you opt to use Ludowici for your St. Louis tile roof, you probably appreciate the aesthetic appeal of clay roofing. Clay tiles offer an air of cultured elegance that can’t be beat. Plus, Ludowici tiles are completely customizable to suit your unique tastes and home roofing wishes. Ludowici tile comes in a variety of colors and textures, so you can mix and match to your heart’s desire or match your current architectural style with no problem.

High-Quality Materials 

The Ludowici brand is well known across the globe. One of the resounding reasons is that their tiles are made with the utmost care and attention to detail. Their formula has been perfected over the years, and you’ll find the tiles to be just as durable as they are beautiful. In fact, Ludowici offers a 75-year warranty on all products regardless of climate and location. The average life expectancy of these tiles is around 100 years. This is great news for a St. Louis tile roof that experiences harsh winters and heavy spring rains. Ludowici stands by their product through thick and thin!

Green and Sustainable

Ludowici products are also environmentally-friendly. Made from locally sourced materials (primarily earth and water), the Ludowici process uses a unique no-waste philosophy. Additionally, all products are 100% recyclable and offer energy savings for any homeowner who chooses the product.
