Terrazzo has a reputation of being the most beautiful, most desirable flooring that money can buy, however, it does not have the reputation of being the most affordable flooring available. Terrazzo installation requires a large initial investment due to the material and labor cost of the product and the skill required to place it, thankfully the initial investment of your terrazzo floor comes with something very unique, an incredibly long lifespan, and minimal maintenance cost.
There are a number of state and federal buildings that have been standing for 100+ years and still showcase their original terrazzo floors, and these floors have many years of service left in them, now imagine if these historic buildings had installed carpet originally, they would have had to replace the carpet at least every 10 to 15 years and they would have had more daily maintenance and very necessary cleaning. The costs incurred over the long term make even cheap carpet more expensive than terrazzo flooring. TerCon Systems has terrazzo repairs and restoration procedures that ensure even the oldest floors are kept in service and looking their best.
If you are trying to decide whether or not terrazzo is the best flooring for your building, just remember, its the most economical, most environmentally responsible, and best looking floor available today.
