Glazed Terra Cotta Patching for Title Guarantee Building

Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, 
California, USA

The Title Guarantee Building is sited directly across from Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles, and boasts a glazed surface that posed unique challenges to the restoration specialists of our crew. The project would involve glazed terra cotta patching for full restoration. The surface was treated to resemble a hand-carved natural stone veneer and the replication of the damaged areas involved some creative use of moldmaking and patching techniques.

This structure is a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, and is on the U.S National Register of Historic Places. Wikipedia Reference:
