Terracotta and faience are often the most decorative part of our historic building heritage. To ensure we preserve these building elements, careful maintenance is key for long term preservation. If not maintained, terracotta and faience will deteriorate over time, including material spalling, cracking, glaze crazing and rust staining from failed anchoring points.
Repairs need to be carried out in a careful and considerate manner. Our reputation in this specialist field has brought us project recognition on notable conservation projects, including East Ham Town Hall and the Windmill Theatre.
We offer sound advice on how to protect and conserve these Victorian kiln products, including correct advice on cleaning methods, and more importantly, those methods to avoid.
