Clay Tile Roofing
Clay Tile Roofs Stand the Test of Time
CMR specializes in the design and installation of clay tile roofing systems. We are one of a handful of companies that earned the Elite Crown Roofer status from Ludowici, the leading manufacturer of clay tile for 130 years.
The Benefits of Clay Tile
Ludowici terra cotta tiles last for more than 100 years and typically do not require much maintenance or cleaning once they are installed. This roofing system is highly durable and can withstand a variety of weather conditions, including high winds, rain, and snow. In addition, terra cotta tiles are fire-resistant, making them an ideal choice for buildings in areas that are prone to wildfires.
Safe and Chemical-Free
The Ludowici tile manufacturing process has been refined over time to be as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. The tiles are shaped and fired in a kiln, but there is no glazing or other coating required. This means that there is no chemical residue left on the tiles, and they can be used in any setting without concerns.
Sustainability & LEED-Qualified
Ludowici is committed to sustainable manufacturing practices, and its products reflect that commitment. Ludowici tiles are made of locally-sourced clay and water that undergo a unique process that creates zero waste. All Ludowici products are also 100% recyclable may be reused or made into a component material for future construction projects.
Ludowici has earned certifications from the Cool Roof Rating Council, Cradle to Cradle, Energy Star, and U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program, which are respected organizations that set the standard for sustainability. This roofing system is designed to be energy-efficient and low-maintenance to help save you money and reduce environmental impact.
Clay tile roofs save property owners money in several ways. Because the roof is designed for minimal maintenance and to last over a century, there is no need for roof repairs or replacements, saving tens of thousands of dollars over the roof’s lifetime. In addition, clay tile is energy-efficient, resulting in savings of 20% or more on utility bills when compared with asphalt shingle roofs. Ludowici products carry a Solar Reflective Index (SRI) above 39 across multiple colors, so you don’t have to limit your choices to get the energy efficiency that you need.
