Terrazzo in its original form is a unique flooring material created by exposing marble chips and aggregates on the surface of concrete or a variation of epoxy resin. It is a composite material that is used for flooring, tiles, countertops and wall treatments.
The surface is polished repeatedly to produce a smooth finish. Terrazzo flooring’s history leads back to the Roman times which has meant that this floor type has an enviable reputation for durability, aesthetic appeal and ease of maintenance.
Terrazzo floors are a high quality and heavy duty alternative more frequently used internally. Its extreme durability means that it is a popular for use in commercial settings such as shopping centres, hospitals and supermarkets.
Why Consider a Terrazzo Floor?
- It is extremely hard wearing
- Its design can be tailored to match colour schemes
- It is easy to clean and maintain to a hygienic standard
- Its lifespan will be longer than other types of hard floors
The restoration process for Terrazzo is exhaustive and the success of the results depend heavily on experience of working with this beautiful stone.
We are able to offer a comprehensive service for restoration and possible extensive repair work that may be required. Loose stone chippings may need filling and your Terrazzo floor may have become dull over years of heavy foot traffic.
This tile type responds excellently to our diamond grinding and polishing process. The natural stone chippings can be polished and then treated with a penetrative stone sealer. This protects the restored floor from future staining and discolouration.
From this point we aim to leave our clients well-educated in how best to approach routine cleaning to keep the floor looking at its best. This offers the hygienically clean surface that is often required in the environments where these exquisite floors are fitted.
