Terrazzo flooring is from the Italian school of engineering that combines marble, glass or stone chips in a cement. Generally, the terrazzo is applied with a skilled contractor. But the DIY (do-it-yourselfer) can do it as well, if they have the tools, time and patience. It’s always best to practice something you haven’t done or installed on a piece that isn’t going to be noticeable or can be easily scrapped.
The Pros and Cons of Terrazzo Flooring:
Work is Beautiful when performed by a trained professional, this type of installation is usually required.
Long lasting installation.
Freedom of design.
Can be very expensive than traditional flooring, time-and labor-intensive to install.
Maintenance is cost effective, durable, easy to clean.
The floors are almost impermeable to water and very strong, but the install costs far outweighs the cost to maintain other floors such as hardwoods, carpets and linoleum.
