Terra-cotta Tile

Terra-cotta evokes images of rustic patios in Mexico or perhaps sunny piazzas on the Mediterranean.  These images are quite appropriate because terra-cotta tile is very much a product of these regions.  The tile is traditionally made by pressing unrefined clay into molds of various shapes and baking it (terra-cotta literally means “baked earth”).  The color of the tile, from brown to red to yellow, is largely a result of the minerals unique to the local soil.

Machine-made terra-cotta tile is regular in shape and can be laid like standard tile, but traditional terra-cotta, especially handmade Mexican Saltillo tile, has irregularities and uneven shapes and thus requires more care during installation.  The variability and rustic character of the tile make up much of its appeal – and they make terra-cotta quite slip resistant.

Unglazed terra-cotta, which is porous and absorbent, should be treated with sealant before being used in wet locations.

We are excited to raise money to go and give a family a home! The J. L. Remodeling crew is going to donate their time and money to go down to Honduras to give Joel and Ana and their two children a home! We are trying to raise the money to pay for the dwelling which is only $12,000!! In addition to that it will cost about $800 each to pay for food and lodging. We can do it!

Please help us in our mission!
