Stone and Terra Cotta Repair

CRI Restoration is a full-service exterior building contractor specializing in total exterior building restoration. We utilize a team of highly skilled union workers to address all maintenance issues regarding your building’s facade, including terra cotta repair. Terra cotta first emerged on the scene in the 1800s, and many 19th-century brownstone buildings still use this clay-based ceramic today. Terra cotta is an unglazed or glazed ceramic with a fired body that is porous. These surfaces provide a beautiful canvas for architects to add incredible detail and precision to a building’s exterior. Used in elaborate roof decorations and massive columns, some of Philadelphia’s most historic buildings include terra cotta. While it is beautiful, it does have a downside; deterioration. The weather throughout our area can be harsh, with torrential downpours, heavy snow, hail, and damaging winds. Because of its delicacy, it is vulnerable to these extreme weather conditions.
