Terra Cotta Buildings Are Part of Our Rich Architectural History ; Repair Your Building’s Spalled Terra Cotta and Restore its Integrity
Many of Chicago’s Terra Cotta buildings were erected after the Great Fire of 1871. Builders choose the material because, once fired, it rivaled the strength and endurance of stone. Architects like Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright among others were responsible for it’s growth in popularity. Today Terra Cotta buildings can be found throughout the city, and are easily identified by their elaborate exterior ornamentation. Like stone, however, Terra Cotta is susceptible to weathering and erosion, which can cause spalling and deterioration.
