Dear Rick, I am not one to write or give credit very often because so many workers do the job ~ just to get it done, and not necessarily the correct or proper way! This is not the case with Ludwig Roofing. Not only did they cover the ground around the house, but they truly left the yard as clean as it was prior to doing the work. The previous owner shingled the house and repaired the roof in several areas incorrectly. Rick's crew could have covered up the mistakes and I would not have known about it until the problems arose at a later date. Instead, they brought the problems to my attention and corrected the errors. Rick's crew went above and beyond what most workers would do. They were polite, quick and professional. In closing I would say that if you need roofing done you need to contact: Ludwig Roofing, Inc. @ (515) 270-9643
Sincerely, Mark B.
A Letter from the President
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rick Ludwig. My experience in the roofing
business goes back to when I was 14 years old and began roofing with my father, Dar
We started Ludwig Roofing in 1985 on the promise that good workmanship and
satisfied customers is what will make our business succeed. I believe that's what you
deserve. Since that time, Ludwig Roofing has built a successful business based on those
two important elements. We have hundreds of satisfied customers in the Des Moines
Here's what makes that true:
The Importance of the Crew
Ludwig Roofing hires only the most competent and skilled crew. We have one crew that
works one roof at a time making sure a quality roof is properly installed. Our crew has
up to 130 years of combined experience. Most of our crew has worked with us from 5 to
17 years. We pay our crew by the hour as opposed to some of our competitors who pay
their workers by the square. We encourage our men to take their time and install each
shingle as if they were working on their own house. My crew takes very much pride in
each of their roofs. They are friendly and Mike, my foreman, will be happy to answer
any questions you might have, if I am not there. They want to give you a great roof just
as much as I do, as you will see, while we are working on your investment.
The Importance of Materials and Installation
Our roofing materials are one of the best you can have installed to protect the valuable
investment you have in your home. Most of our competitors look at the installation
process differently than Ludwig Roofing. We hand nail every portion of the new
construction which is important for you to know because it gives you the complete
assurance your new roof was personally installed.
The Importance of Warranty and Insurance
Ludwig Roofing is proud to say we have one of the best guarantees in the business. This gives our customers the peace of mind that we stand behind our work and make sure you are satisfied with knowing your investment is covered. We also have coverage insurance for our crew including worker's compensation and liability insurance. Ludwig Roofing has been a member of the Better Business Bureau since 1991.
The Importance of Service
At Ludwig Roofing, we stress the importance of customer satisfaction. That means we
strive to install your new roof in usually just one day. And afterwards, you can be
assured that your homes' surrounding will be immaculately clean. In many cases, our
customers have told us their lawn looked better after we were through than it did before we began to work.
As President of Ludwig Roofing, I want you to know how important my reputation as a
family owned business is. I personally supervise every job we do. In many cases, I am
on the roof working along with my crew. Ludwig Roofing has my name on the door and
I want people to be able to mention my business in the most highly respected manner
possible. We might not be the lowest bid you get, but we feel a Ludwig Roof is one of
the best investments you will ever make.
I hope you will let me go to work for you. You will not be disappointed. Please call our
office at 270-9643 to set up an appointment or sign the proposal and send it in.
