Terrazzo: Colors Worth Preserving
In addition to being very durable, terrazzo is a popular flooring choice because of the variety of colors and color combinations it brings to a room or public space. This tough stone composite will last a lifetime. With the proper care, so will its smooth, eye-catching finish.
Why Terrazzo Needs Maintenance
When Italian builders began mixing marble fragments with cement for flooring, they set off a movement in modern architecture. Today, terrazzo (“terrace”) comes in colorful mixtures of marble, quartz, slate and glass, creating a dazzling look worth protecting against:
Dirt. The wax coating has a tendency to collect dirt and yellow over time, leaving the surface looking dingy even after mopping.
Erosion. Over time, foot traffic can erode flooring surfaces, leaving them uneven with a lackluster appearance.
Chipping. Unattractive chips and holes can develop, caused by the movement of furniture, heavy falls or normal wear.
Thankfully, professional stone restoration services can usually fix these issues and protect your terrazzo flooring, countertops, tile and other surfaces from future damage.

Terrazzo Repair Services
Epoxy Hole Repair
Holes can occur in terrazzo as the composite resin degrades over time. We use a strong epoxy to fill the holes and strengthen the composite.
The colorful touch terrazzo tiles add to kitchen and bath spaces is lost as they shift due to normal wear. We turn back the clock by realigning, leveling out and sealing loose tiles.
Terrazzo tiles can also chip or crack with impact or when pressure is applied unevenly in use. We use a special epoxy that can repair the damage and make your tiles look like new.
