Why Choose Terrazzo?
Terrazzo is an excellent tiling choice for a number of reasons. The first is its looks. Because it is made by embedding marble, granite, quartz or glass chips in a cement binder, it retains many of the aesthetic qualities of the non-cement additive. Often it achieves a look equally as stunning as pure stone or ceramic tiles at a fraction of the price. Secondly, because terrazzo tile is manufactured by mixing different elements together, you can choose almost any design or color for your tile project that you can dream of, including abstract decorative designs, official seals, and floor maps just to name a few. The sky is the limit.
On a more practical level, terrazzo is also one of the most durable tiling materials on the market – much more so than its stone and ceramic competitors. Once sealed properly it is impervious to water and stain damage, it doesn’t chip like other tile materials can, and can be used on both interior and exterior applications. And if the surface gets worn down over the years, it can be re-finished and polished to look like new again.
