Unlike marble or granite, terrazzo isn’t made from a single material. It can be made from man-made or natural materials, or a combination of different types of stones and other materials. Many of the most popular terrazzo styles in use today are made from recycled glass and natural aggregates including marble, granite, and quartz.
That makes terrazzo one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly flooring materials as well as one of the most creative and attractive.
Terrazzo Repair — The Basics of Terrazzo Flooring
Terrazzo is prized for its unique speckled look. The materials you choose are held together in as resin or concrete base, then polished, honed, or sandblasted to give you the specific finish you want.
That makes terrazzo extremely durable and more resistant to staining and damage than other materials, such a ceramic tile or porcelain. And it’s why terrazzo is often used in high-traffic areas such as hallways, lobbies, and entryways.
There are several different quality standards for terrazzo. Italian terrazzo is generally considered to be of the highest standard. It must be produced under strict conditions that ensure that the material is never compromised. So the result is a flooring of exceptionally high quality.
