proven throughout history as the smart choice
Once thought of by some as outdated, terrazzo is once again being recognized by today’s architects and designers as a durable and attractive material. It has proven itself throughout history as the smart choice for surfaces that are subject to effects of severe weather and foot traffic while retaining its beauty and relatively low maintenance costs.
Elegant and timeless, with endless design possibilities, Terrazzo has proven more than capable of enduring and performing for more than 500 years. In today’s world, terrazzo is an environmentally friendly material with optimum durability, and exceptionally low maintenance. Terrazzo can consist of marble, quartz, granite aggregate, mother-of-pearl and/or pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled glass, porcelain and mirror chips, which are mixed with cement or epoxy and polished to produce a smooth, uniformly textured surface for floors, walls, stairs, curbs, counter-tops and even ceilings.
Comprised of zero VOC materials, terrazzo exhibits little or no off-gassing over the life of the cured floor. The non-porous finish doesn’t support microbial growth, nor allow moisture to accumulate, helping to maintain a mold-free environment with improved indoor air quality.
We’ve dedicated an entire division of Samfet to the art of terrazzo installation, where we offer custom blending service, conceptual planning, restoration and installation. Our pre-planning design consultations, sample kits, and analysis by our skilled technical staff and CAD system all help our clients clearly envision the final result While others in the trade turned their attention away from terrazzo, Samfet continued to maintain a strong presence in the areas of terrazzo design and installation.
