Straightline Tile & Stone Inc. Offers Many Terrazzo Flooring Options
If you are looking for a smooth and stylish flooring material that is perfect for both residential and commercial properties, then terrazzo could be the perfect choice for you. Terrazzo is made by exposing marble, granite, quartz or glass chips on the surface of concrete. It is then mixed and finally polished until the surface is smooth. In general, there are two main types of terrazzo to choose from: traditional and modern.
If you want a more efficient and time-saving installation process for your home then the modern, or epoxy, approach is the way to go. However, it is important to note that this still requires skilled hands to complete the job correctly. By contrast, if time isn’t of the essence for you, then you may feel like taking the time to choose the more traditional concrete based terrazzo. The benefits of this approach are that it is more durable and offers more rustic looking facades to choose from.
Difference Between Cement-Based and Epoxy Terrazzo
Used by the Venetians since the 1500s, it is somewhat of an understatement to suggest that traditional or cement-based terrazzo has stood the test of time. However, this most decorative and durable of floor types has enhanced homes and businesses across the world for centuries and isn’t going to disappear anytime soon. That being said, in recent years a newer type of terrazzo has entered the flooring scene.
The thin-set epoxy terrazzo is poured-in-place and tops concrete substrates. This material never exceeds a thickness of 3/8 inch. This is in contrast to the more traditional approach which must be two to three inches in thickness. If you are looking for a multicolored pattern or design, then new epoxy could be the perfect choice for you.
