When you get an adobe, mission, or Spanish style home, putting Spanish or Mexican tiles on the roof is the crowning touch. Ludowici is the top name in Spanish tile, having been in business for over 120 years. Roofers may suggest you consider tile when you need a roof replacement because of its outstanding value.
Ludowici tile is guaranteed for 75 years, three times as long as most shingle roofs, and almost as long lasting as slate. While barrel and ‘s’ shaped tiles are what comes to mind when considering a tile roof, they also come in many other colors and styles to compliment almost any home or commercial building style. They can be natural red clay, perhaps with a whitewash irregularly placed to create an overall random texture, or they can be variegated in other colors, or solid glazed colors. The tiles can be flat and laid down in layers like shingles or shakes, even offering colors to simulate slate. You can even develop custom color combinations for a truly unique topper for your personal castle. Because the color is fired in not painted onto the surface, it is guaranteed to last the full 75 years.
Because of their weight, your contractor may need to make structural adjustments to bear the extra load of a tile roof. No matter what your style of home, Mexican tiles are a beautiful addition to your home that will last beyond your lifetime and improve your home’s value if you ever sell it.
