  • Before heading over to Terrazzo Flooring pros
    and cons, lets have a brief overview about what
    Terrazzo basically is. Terrazzo is actually a
    construction material made by a combination of
    marble or stone chips. These chips are joined
    using epoxy-resin or concrete. Depending on the
    materials used in Terrazzo, it can be used both
    outdoors and indoors. It is poured like concrete
    in your home and can be used as tiles for
    outdoors. 
  • Terrazzo flooring was introduced in ancient
    times, however, it is in the past few years that
    it has gained more market. Designers have begun
    to argue on the potential of Terrazzo floors as a
    possible alternative to busy tiles and cold stone
    flooring. Although the ratio of concrete in both
    Terrazzo and cold stone floors is minimal, the
    extra advantage of Terrazzo over cold stone is
    its added texture and availability in different
    colors.

    process especially if you are planning to pour it

  • PROS OF TERRAZZO FLOORING
  • Added Texture
  • Terrazzo flooring comes with an added texture
    that makes it a better choice against plain
    concrete floors. It comes with the same sleek
    industrial style and the soft edges add to its
    aesthetic appeal.
  • Customization
  • Terrazzo comes in a wide range of color
    options making it easier for you to customize it
    according to your design. It gives you the chance
    of creating a really elegant and unique floor.
  • Versatility
  • In addition to being customized in terms of
    colors, it can also be molded into custom shapes
    like the sink, bathtubs, and staircases, etc.
  • Durability
  • There is a reason why terrazzo flooring has
    gained good market share and is the most common
    flooring type used in institutional and
    commercial buildings, and that reason is its
    durability. It is hands down one of the most
    durable flooring materials available in the
    market today.

  • Cons of Terrazzo flooring
  • Cracks
  • If terrazzo is not properly installed it can
    get cracked and this is a serious concern for the
    building owners. Although cracks can be repaired,
    the process is quite difficult and costly. So if
    you are planning to go for Terrazzo flooring make
    sure you hire expert installers.
  • High Cost
  • Terrazzo flooring is generally costly but the
    exact cost, however, varies according to your
    requirements. If you want stone aggregates then
    terrazzo flooring will be relatively inexpensive
    as compared to if you want to add marble chips or
    huge quartz etc.
