Terrazzo

Terrazzo

Terrazzo is a highly versatile solid surface material invented by Venetian mosaic workers in the 15th century. Traditionally, terrazzo is comprised of marble chips embedded into a cement base, then ground flat and coated with a topical sealer. However, now a days Terrazzo can be made with Portland cement base and it can also be made with epoxy based binder bed instead. Which makes it a non-porous nor absorbent.

To restore Terrazzo, we will need to diamond cut the floor to eliminate any scratches using different grits of diamonds follow by polishing which brings sheen out to the floor. Third step is to seal it which is an extra layer of protection to prevent things like acidic agents’ from penetrating the floor. Even though the stone is not as absorbent as marble it most get seal to protect the floor from moisture, and discoloration and any spills that may cause staining. we also, crystallize it to basically enhance the level of shine.
