If you’re considering terrazzo products for your next project, you’re making an environmentally conscious decision. Terrazzo is sustainable and can be produced from recycled materials. The epoxy matrices used in terrazzo also low VOC, and most aggregates consist of natural marble or recycled glass.
It isn’t just for flooring either. A London-based designer uses leftover marble pieces to create beautiful palladiana (large aggregate terrazzo) table tops with a chaotic flair.
Because of terrazzo’s ease of maintenance and durability, it lasts the life of a building and can withstand use for decades. The National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association states “Today’s trends are back to more permanent, forward-looking building standards and greater initial investment in building well to conserve resources long-term.” Terrazzo flooring and precast products, such as countertops, can easily be restored and back to looking like new within hours.
