Queen Anne Detail

Detail of a Queen Anne style house built of brick, terra cotta, brownstone, and wood. Cast terra cotta was often used to ornament brick buildings in the Queen Anne and other styles of the late 19th and early 20th century.

Terra cotta is one of the many exterior materials that are addressed in Chapter 12 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners. Knowledge is key for dealing with materials that are not commonly used today – what is it?, how was it made?, how should it be maintained?, can it be repaired?, what are replacement options? The book answers these questions for a wide range of materials.

The book will be released on December 10th and is available for pre-order on the Barnes & Noble, Target, and Walmart websites and on Amazon. Reserve your copy today! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0884484904?pf_rd_p=ab873d20-a0ca-439b-ac45-cd78f07a84d8&pf_rd_r=ETJS809DYCFF8MWD78PW
