Architects and designers loved the look of architectural terracotta for centuries. And it’s making a return in our modern building facades. Now, you can have the look of terracotta cladding panels without the worries.
The warm, classic look of terracotta without the danger of your cladding deteriorating or failing over the years.
With technical porcelain, you can get the warm, soft color and texture of terracotta cladding without the fear of water-related deterioration. No more crazing or spalling that comes from traditional glazed terracotta cladding.
Your Terracotta Upgrade
Did you know if you specify architectural terracotta, it’s only required to meet the same standards as clay brick (ASTM C67)? That means it can have 4% to 7% water absorption and still pass. So, it allows water in to do its damage.
Not in our house. Our terracotta porcelain series panels (like all our technical porcelain) meet the much more rigid ASTM C373. That means they have water absorption of 0.1% or less. So, water doesn’t get in.
Check out our terracotta colors and textures here and let us know if you’d like a sample to review for your current or next project.
Until next time, keep growing your garden with beautiful building facades…
