When it comes to terrazzo, there are two main options to choose from. First, there is the modern or epoxy style terrazzo that is generally quite thin, easy to install and has high color availability. On the other hand, there is the more traditional cement-based method that has been used for centuries, which is more durable and extremely water and stain resistant. Other advantages of the traditional, or sand-cushion method as it is often known, is that it hides subfloor imperfections if the concrete base isn’t completely level.
While, on top of that, the sand-layer of the traditional terrazzo method absorbs and allows for some subfloor movement which can help prevent cracks. The concrete slab has to be dropped two-and-a-half to three inches below the finished height of the floor so it is only possible for it to be implemented in a new construction project and must be planned very far in advance. As a result, it is almost never possible to use this type of terrazzo tiling installation in remodeled homes. This is the heaviest tiling option at 25 to 30 pounds per square feet.
Terrazzo Is The Durable Choice
The non-porous nature of terrazzo means that it does not absorb bacteria. On top of that, any cleaning that takes place can be done without the use of harsh chemicals. The simple fact of the matter is that terrazzo is extremely durable. The durability that this type of tile offers means that, in many cases, it will last longer than the home it was installed in. The intricate composition of terrazzo means that it will almost certainly never require replacing, saving you both time and money in the long-term. If you want a tile that looks great and is guaranteed to stand the test of time, then you need to look at terrazzo today.
