The manufacturing process for terrazzo flooring produces strong and long-lasting tiles. Granite is combined with a mixture of quartz, porcelain, recycled glass or decorative stone. Then, the material is bonded together in a resilient resin, which is polished to a high shine. Typically, terrazzo flooring never has to be resealed.

No Fuss, No Muss

Non-porous terrazzo flooring seals out contaminants that could threaten the integrity of the tiles. Easy cleanup involves damp mopping with a mild cleanser periodically and spot mopping messes. Except in extreme circumstances, your terrazzo floors won’t need to be polished or resealed to stay beautiful, even in high-traffic entrances.

Easy to Install

You can install terrazzo directly over existing flooring. Because the material is so flexible, installers can use a diamond cutting disc to create tiles with a radius up to 27.5 inches. These large, lightweight tiles are easy to transport to job sites and install quickly. Terrazzo flooring often requires less grout work due to the large tile format.

So, if you are looking to replace your existing flooring with an updated look that will last for many years, consider terrazzo flooring for your home or business.
