Terra Cotta Restoration

Terra cotta, both glazed and unglazed, is a very common decorative building material, used widely from its commercial introduction in the late 19th century until today. Originally marketed as a cost-effective alternative to hand-cut natural stone, it has evolved into a medium all its own. The following terra cotta restoration projects involved the use of repair as well as complete terra cotta replacement to provide the finished results. The restoration of terra cotta veneers often involves patching and repair of glazed decorative surfaces, using specialty patching mortars and coatings. Structural and surface damage can originate from moisture penetration behind the terra cotta units, so waterproofing and anchorage issues must be addressed as well.
