Terrazzo is Italian for Terrace. In the 16th Century workers in Italy would use leftover marble pieces from projects and place them in clay then grind them for a smooth walking surface. Terrazzo is made by exposing aggregates on the surface of concrete or epoxy resin by grinding the surface. It can be poured in place or precast. Floors, stair treads, stair risers, stair landings and base can all receive a Terrazzo finish. There are multiple types of terrazzo; Epoxy Terrazzo, Polyacrylate Terrazzo, Sand Cushion Terrazzo, Bonded Terrazzo, Monolithic Terrazzo, Rustic Terrazzo, Palladiana Terrazzo, Venetian Terrazzo, and Large Aggregate Terrazzo. There is even Terrazzo Tile. The color spectrum with Epoxy Terrazzo gives you endless options. Aggregates in Terrazzo range in every imaginable size but it depends on which type of Terrazzo you are looking for. There are many types of aggregates; the most common being marble along with granite, porcelain, glass, mother of pearl, mirror, and other recycled products.
