  Terrazzo History      

Terrazzo, from the Italian word for terraces, was created in the Fifteenth-century in Europe when Venetian workers discovered a new use for discarded marble scrap. They used the marble chips to surface the terraces around their living quarters. The uneven surfaces created, when the chips were set in clay to anchor them, convinced the workers that flattening the surface would produce a smoother surface more comfortable for walking. They began to rub the surface with handstone, achieving a flat surface.

Since that time it has become a logical and practical solution for contemporary design and construction. Now a days terrazzo flooring is a material consisting of marble, granite, onyx or glass chips in Portland cement, modified Portland cement or a resinous matrix that is poured and ground smooth when dry. Available in many colors, it forms a hard, smooth, durable surface that is easily cleaned.
