What is Terrazzo? 
There is nothing new about terrazzo. Terrazzo is one of the oldest flooring systems. Terrazzo has a long and rich history that dates back to the golden Age of Rome. Terrazo, from the Italian word for 'terrace' or 'terrassa,' is one of the orginial recycled products - created by Venetian workers utlilzing the waste chips from slab marble processing. Terrazzo is a perfect flooring choice because it's classic beauty look, durability, and low maintenance. The demand for terrazzo is increasing in many markets, from performance driven institutions such as schools, airports, and hospitals; to the designer driven markets of retail and commercial buildings. In addition, terrazzo floors can be used indoors or outdoors because of its durability. It is even perfect for traffic areas such as lobbies and hallways. If you want reasonable price, durable substitute to stone or ceramic tile, then terrazzo is your answer.


If you can IMAGINE it, we can CREATE it.
