Sometimes choosing the right floor for you can be a difficult decision, but by selecting the right floor, you can give a space the look and feel its needs for years to come. When determining which floor to choose from, factors such as appearance and ease of maintenance play a part in the final decision. From carpet to hardwood to terrazzo, there is a wide selection of floors for anyone to choose from. Each floor has its advantages and disadvantages but we at Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo suggest installing a terrazzo floor. Here is what you need to know about terrazzo flooring.
If you want long-lasting floors, then no other flooring option can match terrazzo’s durability. The average life cycle for terrazzo is 75 years. Some terrazzo floors have lasted over 100 years thanks to the proper care. Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo has been installing terrazzo flooring in schools, hospitals and government centers over the last 20 years, areas in which high traffic is common. Terrazzo has great shock resistance as well. Some floors crack over time, but terrazzo floors are strong enough to withstand constant pressure. You can even install underlayments over concrete slabs. Anti-crack membranes are designed to buffer any horizontal type movements and reduce cracking. If you are looking for a long term flooring solution, terrazzo will benefit you.
Now while terrazzo has a high initial cost per square foot, it really is an affordable flooring option. Because terrazzo has greater durability than other flooring options, you can expect fewer replacements over time. With less frequent repairs, the more you save over the years. There are a number of factors that will affect the cost. Factors such as the size of the project, location, and design options can all determine the overall pricing for terrazzo floors. Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo works with contractors and architects to discuss an appropriate price that meets their project’s budget. Feel free to browse our selection of projects at some point. Terrazzo floors definitely bring great value for all who desire it.
One of the main aspects we focus on is creating a sustainable environment when installing a terrazzo floor. Our floors are VOC free, using a mixture of recycled aggregates and epoxy resin. These floors will not emit any source of out-gassing. As a result, this can benefit commercial properties such as hospitals where it can be constantly busy. The installation time is quick and you do not have to worry about particles dispersing into a ventilation system neither. In addition, terrazzo floors are bacteria-resistant, making it an affect means of ridding germs just like a hand sanitizer would.
Terrazzo floors are a work of art and should be considered to replace existing floors or installed for an upcoming project. Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo can confirm that no projects will look the same. We can install floors that meet your imagination. Give us a call today or email us at email@example.com to get more information about how we can help with a project.
