Richard Bondarowicz of SMART Roofing, Inc. joins other industry professionals at Ludowici Roof Tile, Inc.

October 23, 2013

Ludowici-41Richard Bondarowicz, Vice President, SMART Roofing, Inc., joined other industry professionals in a New Product Development Forum at Ludowici Roof Tile at their plant & headquarters in Ohio. Ludowici is known as THE manufacturer of the finest clay roof tile since 1888.

For over a century, Ludowici’s clay roof tile has been renowned by architects for its beauty and durability. Ludowici has made a lot of tile since 1888 and all of it can still be made today. It’s not unusual for Ludowici roof tile to outlast the structure under it, nor is it unusual for the original tile to be reinstalled once the structure has been repaired. With an expected life of over 100 years, and because they require no maintenances, Ludowici roof tiles offer the lowest life cycle costs in the industry and is backed by the industry’s most comprehensive warranty program.

• Many Ludowici roofs in the US and worldwide are over 100 years old.
• Ludowici tiles are 3 to 5 times as durable as shingle, concrete, synthetic or metal roofs.
