Terrazzo flooring has a long and rich history that dates back over 500 years. The word Terrazzo originated from the Italian word for “terraces”, it was created purely by chance by Venetian marble workers. During the Fifteenth century workers discovered a new use for discarded chips from slab marble. Artisans began setting odd size marble pieces into clay to pave surfaces and the terraces around their homes, the results were amazing. Over time, the process of creating terrazzo surfaces has evolved and now glass, granite and quartz along with marble chips are used.
The combination of beauty, durability and low maintenance has led to a renaissance in the use of terrazzo over the past decade. Today, terrazzo flooring continues to provide the ultimate in durability and low maintenance, typically lasting the life of the building.

Commonly used in terrazzo flooring to serve two basic needs: form and function. Aesthetically, divider strips are often the skeleton to the terrazzo floor’s design, offering architects and interior designers the ability to create custom designs and patterns. Divider Strips may simply serve as a transition between colors or they may be bent on the job site or water-jet cut at the factory to form intricate designs, logo artwork and lettering. The thickness and metal of the divider strip may also be varied to compliment the flooring’s design. The divider strip can be as apparent or discrete as your design requires.

Consider the lifecycle of an average commercial flooring system. During the lifetime of a building, the total cost of flooring may exceed 35 times the initial cost. With terrazzo flooring systems, floors will typically last the lifetime of the structure. While other systems may require many repairs or even replacement utilizing additional valuable resources, terrazzo flooring systems require minimal maintenance. Choosing carpeting over terrazzo flooring may be a cheaper choice now but over time carpet becomes a more expensive flooring option and will need to be replaced.
