Boston Valley Terra Cotta has been working alongside architects, building owners, and contractors to manufacture terra cotta facades for restorations and new construction in New York City for over 30 years.

Historically, architectural terra cotta became a popular building material between the late 1800’s and 1930’s due to it’s lightweight and fire resistant characteristics and the almost limitless ability to be ornamentally molded. While many new products for cladding a façade have been introduced to the construction industry in the years since terra cotta had its hey-day, few have come to surpass terra cotta in longevity, aesthetics, and sustainability. Terra cotta continues to be a material of choice for many designers because of its malleability with regard to shape and texture, its abundance of finish options, its compatibility with other building products, as well as its ability to withstand severe climates both for freeze-thaw and UV resistance.

There are countless buildings in New York City, both old and new, clad in terra cotta. Below are the numerous projects Boston Valley has had the pleasure of working on.
