Event Details


8:30 AM – 4:00 PM


We invite you to join us for a special full-day workshop program on Thursday, February 18, 2010 at the Edison Coatings, Inc. Training Center. Our program includes a series of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on workshop exercises designed to explain and illustrate current best practices for masonry repair, repointing and architectural coating. This is a non-commercial program and has been pre-registered with AIA Continuing Education System for 7 HSW LU’s. There is an optional second day extension program on Friday, February 19th, focusing on advanced topics in terra cotta glaze replication and exposed aggregate concrete repair.


  • Session 1. Terra Cotta & Stone Repair

Expert instructors John Harry and Marc Cote will demonstrate the techniques and approaches required to achieve both esthetic excellence and high durability in repairs to sandstone and terra cotta. Participants will have an opportunity to try their hands at patching, profiling and finishing using a range of repair materials, glazes and finishes. Advanced topics include discussion of the importance of proper work sequencing and issues revolving around working on saturated masonry buildings.


  • Session 2. Masonry Mortars & Repointing

Do you know the differences between modern and historic mortars? Between hydrated lime, hydraulic
lime and lime putty? Between masonry cement, portland cement and natural cement? Do you know
where and when each of these is appropriate? Chemical engineer Michael Edison will explain these
materials, how they work and how they are properly combined with other ingredients to make masonry
mortars. Demonstrations will illustrate preparation of various types of mortars and how to avoid potential errors in mortar proportioning. Applicable ASTM standards and historic repointing guidelines will be discussed.

John Harry will demonstrate techniques for reproducing different joint profiles, will discuss the pro’s and cons of varying methods of joint preparation, and will offer practical strategies for curing and color control. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to get the feel of working with a variety of modern and historic mortars.

  • Friday Extension (Optional): Advanced Finishing

Advanced topics in terra cotta glaze replication will be covered in an extended hands-on workshop, including multi-color repairs, blending, streaking, faux-finishing and "aging" with the use of special semi-transparent weathering stains. Repair techniques for exposed aggregate concrete and stucco repair will also be covered.
