Speaker: Presenter: Alicia Cordle
Whether matching tiles for an historic preservation project or building anew with a specific color in mind, terra cotta tile can be produced in a number of custom colors. This webinar will address new roofs, new roofs designed to replicate all or part of an original roof, or matching small areas of roofs for selective replacement. Special attention will be give to matching for historic preservation projects.
- Consider the importance of color, particularly on historic preservation projects.
- Discuss expectations with clients about post-replacement appearance, particularly for historic and new traditional roofs.
- Communicate with ceramic engineers to arrive at the appropriate colors to insure a good match.
- Develop a process for review and approval of mockups onsite before a final order is made, particularly for historic properties in historic districts and campus settings.
