Ludowici 13-1/4” Spanish Tile Roof Replacement on High Rise Apartments in St. Louis, Missouri

Located in very close proximity to St. Louis University, St. Louis University School of Medicine, St. Louis University School of Nursing, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, and St. Louis University School of Law, the Lindell Towers (Coronado Place and Towers) is an appealing source for students throughout the area. 

Due to the appeal of a low bid, the roof had been previously restored by an out of town “storm chaser” and was ultimately determined the restoration was not completed properly and caused leaking and damage to the building. 

Renaissance Roofing, Inc. was contacted to remove and replace the existing Ludowici 13-1/4” Spanish tile roof and trim accessories from both roofing structures on the downtown high-rise building; Lindell Towers East and West.

Our scope of work included the removal of the existing lighting protection, snow fencing and historic Ludowici clay Spanish roof tiles and save for reuse. Removal and replacement of the existing underlayments, flashings and fasteners and prep the deck surface (while replacing any rotten or failing portions or the deck). 

Our work included the installation of all new 16 ounce and 20 ounce copper flashings including the gutter apron, drip edge, counter flashings, valley metal and copper pockets throughout both roofing structures.
