Terrazzo Flooring Information

Terrazzo, from the Italian word for terraces, is faux marble flooring that dates back over 1500 years. Venetian workers created terrazzo by utilizing waste chips from slab marble processing, making terrazzo one of the first recycled building products.

Terrazzo consists of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other suitable chips in combination with a binder of Portland cement or a resinous material such as epoxy, polyester or polyacrylate. Once installed, it is then cured, ground and polished or otherwise finished to a smooth or uniformly textured surface.

With a variety of green benefits, including zero VOC materials, little to no offgassing and a finish that does not support microbial growth or allow moisture to accumulate, terrazzo is a sustainable flooring choice that continues to provide the ultimate in low maintenance and durability, typically lasting the life of the building.
