Terrazzo: The Secret Ingredient

When it comes to working on a new architectural project, it is sometimes difficult to pick which materials will best fit your clients’ flooring needs. They may need something that can withstand a lot of heavy foot traffic. Or they may need that will capture a person’s attention as he or she walks through the building.

What’s the Secret Ingredient?

We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be so difficult because we know the secret ingredient to any great floor design:

Terrazzo.

Not only is terrazzo a uniquely beautiful product that is customizable to each individual’s preference, it also boasts a range of other features.

Most notably, terrazzo flooring is extremely durable. In fact, it can withstand immense amounts of pressure.

Another prominent feature is its inability to sustain mold, mildew, or bacteria. You know what that means. It’s the perfect choice for schools and healthcare facilities.

Last, but certainly not least, is the life cycle cost of terrazzo.

We hear a lot of people talking about how they want to use terrazzo, but say they simply can’t afford it.

Well, here’s the thing: terrazzo may seem like a pricier option in the short-run, but once you look at the costs over a long period of time—those costs decrease a bit.
