historic preservation & Masonry Restoration

terra cotta restoration

Terra cotta has been appreciated as a design element for centuries because of its beauty and its durability as a construction material.  G.L. Capasso, Inc. has been successful in the historical restoration of buildings featuring architectural terra cotta for over 40 years. Terra cotta restoration is a far more complex undertaking than conventional masonry restoration.  We are an expert in the following:

  • Terra Cotta Replacement
  • Replacement with Substitute Materials
  • Structural Stabilization of Terra Cotta
  • Patching and Reglaze terra cotta surfaces

Terra cotta repair can present a wide array of challenges for the restoration contractor, especially when the project calls for historical preservation. These projects require a restoration contractor with the ability to carefully remove existing historically significant elements, catalog their position within the facade, rebuild the unit if distressed, and work closely with a recognized terra cotta manufacturer to fabricate a replica of same dimensional size and glazing finish that may include speckles, molting of color, age distress, and multiple colors.

G.L. Capasso, Inc. has the experience, expertise, and architectural knowledge to fulfill these requirements for historical as well as non-historical structures.
