TERRAZZO FLOORING IN VANCOUVER
Terrazzo is the trend that is standing the test of time. With flexibility in terms of design and application, this flooring solution has been chosen in a wide variety of commercial and residential spaces to create striking visuals. Covering a limitless array of colours and textures, thanks to the many aggregates available today, terrazzo is being used as much now as it was years ago to create glamorous and truly unique aesthetics.
After deliberating over the many flooring options and deciding that terrazzo is for you – make sure that you are completely clear about which type will suit your space the best.
Terrazzo flooring has traditionally consisted of marble or granite chips set in concrete and polished down to a smooth surface, creating a decoratively patterned finish of small, interspersed coloured flakes.
However, with a new trend we see new technologies, and today resin systems are revolutionising the design, installation and use of terrazzo surfaces. Thanks to the versatility of this seamless resin flooring, it provides the designers of large commercial facilities with the opportunity to think of the floor area as one considerable canvas on which they can create bespoke works of art.
Using an epoxy or polyurethane based system instead of concrete makes it easy to pour blocks of coloured resin into any desired pattern. Metal bands are used to mark out the pattern’s different sections and once the last colour has been added in, the floor area is then repeatedly ground down, sealed and polished to create a smooth and glossy finish

Probably the most common terrazzo system available, epoxy terrazzo is ideal for any type of residential or commercial building. It literally is the best thin-set system. Thickness ranges from 1/4″ inch to 3/8″, making it one of the thinnest floor materials around. Due to its thinness, it is also light in weight. The weight of this system is 3 to 4 pounds. Don’t be fooled by its lightness. It is one durable floor.
In addition to its high tensile and compressive strengths, epoxy terrazzo allows any designer to choose any color, shape, or pattern for a project. There are no restrictions.
Besides its durability and design possibilities, epoxy terrazzo has many advantages such as chemical resistance and slip resistance. It has a unique strength that you cannot find in any cement-based system. One of its best features is its ease of maintenance. All you need is a mop and a bucket of warm water. Epoxy terrazzo has the lowest maintenance cost of all the terrazzo systems.
Some cement terrazzo is much more suitable for more challenging areas, exterior applications and renovation projects where there is no active vapour barrier beneath the substrate.
Cement terrazzo uses a cement matrix and describes multiple terrazzo systems, including sand cushion, bonded, rustic, monolithic and polyacrylate systems. Using a cement based mix with the incorporated aggregates, this system is often thicker and heavier than epoxy alternatives. This thick, robust nature means that it is better at withstanding impacts, steam cleaning, heavy traffic and point loading.
Most terrazzo floor installations occur indoors. However, with rustic terrazzo, the installation takes place outdoors. Terrazzo’s exterior use gives it an advantage over other flooring options. You may wonder whether an outdoor terrazzo system can be smooth and slippery. Not with rustic terrazzo. Rustic terrazzo has a rough, textured surface that makes it slip-resistant and adaptable to any weather conditions. The total thickness of a rustic terrazzo floor ranges from half an inch to six inches.
When installing this type of terrazzo floor, it has the same elegant design elements that other terrazzo floors possess. Designers can use a variety of textures, colors, and patterns to create any design they wish. So where exactly can rustic terrazzo be installed? The answer is anywhere outside. The material could make for an interesting pool or other outside surroundings of apartments, restaurants, garages, hotels, and other commercial establishments.
