One of the oldest and most natural building materials, clay offers durability, sustainability and beauty unrivaled in other finishes. American Clay is dedicated to preserving and respecting the world around us. As a result, all of our plasters are clay-based, continuing the tradition of people the world over for thousands of years.
With our plasters, your walls will stand as long as your home or office does, removing the need for continual repairs typical of other, more artificial products. American Clay is dedicated to recycling and reusing content, maintains low-energy production standards to reduce energy consumption, and sources locally to keep fuel shipment costs low.
The longevity, recycled content and low maintenance of American Clay finishes allows us to contribute to the US Green Build Council's (USGBC) credits. Depending on your location and the nature of your project, up to eight LEED credits are available. Using renewable resources, recyclable packaging and containing zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), American Clays Plasters will help make your project better for your home in your city, as well as your home on Earth.
