Terra cotta is a waterproof ceramic that has been used in many different ways throughout history. Both glazed and unglazed terra cotta is very sturdy and relatively inexpensive. Terra cotta can be molded into many different complicated shapes and sizes. Glazed terra cotta gives the appearance that a building is finished in granite or marble.
Granite is a natural material considered one of the oldest building materials known to man. Granite is a highly durable and versatile material capable of having many types of finishes and can be custom designed for finish and performance. Marble is similar to granite in its commercial and geological definitions. However, marble has less compressive and flexural strength than granite and needs to be carefully selected for each application. There are four categories of marble (A,B,C & D), each category is suitable for a different application.
