Ludowici clay tiles are of the highest quality available—chosen to adorn thousands of historic and newly built structures around the world.

The Family Story

400 years ago, the Ludovisi family of Rome, Italy began producing expertly crafted clay roof tiles. By the late 1800s, their descendant, Carl Ludowici, used this unique form of old-world craftsmanship in a roof tile factory of his own based in Chicago, Illinois. The popularity of his products led to the expansion of several factories until Ludowici was eventually consolidated into a single facility in New Lexington, Ohio.

Today, Ludowici tiles are still made in New Lexington, Ohio, and are revered worldwide for their distinctive look and sustainable, long-lasting beauty. With over 130 years of experience, and offers a broad range of color and texture options, allowing for endless inspiration. For thousands of years, villages and cities of old-world Europe, Asia, and beyond have used clay roofing as a pillar of architecture and design. Inspired by this philosophy, we incorporate old-world craftsmanship with modern production technology to design equally enduring terra cotta products to stand the test of time.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

The tiles are made of locally-sourced, natural materials (clay and water) through a unique process that creates no waste. We go to great efforts to be good stewards of the land we harvest. Our tiles are chemically inert, making them forever safe. Moreover, all Ludowici products are 100% recyclable. They may be reused to create a beautiful vintage roof. At the end of their lifespan, they can be recycled and used as filler and filter components for future construction.
