Terracotta cladding system emerges advantages of two worlds of technology in constructiion, for m,aking it a growing technique in the future. There are some basic advantages of using these kind of cladding systems. They are as follows:-
Teracotta cladding system helps to keep your building safe from any worst kiind of weather consitions without any need of maintenance and repair. This includes positive and negative wind loads, as well as seismic, thermal, and normal movement.

The teracotta cladding does not require any extra maintainnace, as it do not have any kind of chemical leakage.
It is the most eco friendly and recyclable material.
The water absorption level is almost low and is very water resistant.
