Terrazzo Grinding and Polishing

A brief history.........Terrazzo was originally invented by Venetian construction workers as a low cost flooring material using marble chips from other high end jobs. The workers would usually set them in clay to surface the patios around their living quarters. Back then terrazzo consisted of marble chips, clay, and a goat milk sealer to make the terrazzo look permanently wet!

Today most terrazzo is installed in tile form and then diamond ground and polished to the required finish to provide a seamless floor that will give decades of service. Terrazzo is available in an extraordinary range of colors and types of aggregate. The finished product is very beautiful and hardwearing making it a perfect choice for retail areas, shopping centers, foyers, hospitals or anywhere a hardwearing floor requiring minimal maintenance is required.

While Floors With Flair do not install the terrazzo tiles, we are one of the few floor finishers who have extensive experience in grinding and polishing large terrazzo projects in Queensland. In fact this aspect of our business takes us to all areas of our state to diamond grind and polish large areas of terrazzo flooring.

The equipment we use is designed and built in Italy especially for stone and terrazzo grinding. Klindex grinding equipment has been regarded across the globe as without peer when it comes to producing a consistently flat, highly polished, beautiful floor. If you would like to see our machinery in action take a look at the video below.
