Terrazzo Tiles: a Cost Effective Solution to Traditional Flooring

Posted by Daniel Lawrence on October, 2017

Terrazzo floor tiles are an alternative to traditional terrazzo flooring which is usually a mixture of marble, quartz, granite, and glass that is poured into a cast or sometimes poured in place much like cement. The tiles, however, are typically more cost-effective than terrazzo flooring that is poured or set in a caste. These terrazzo tiles cost less for several reasons. The tiles are easier to lay, which cuts back on the cost of labor, saving the buyer money and because the tiles are made of recycled materials, production costs less, and the buyer saves more!

An Easier Tile

Traditionally poured terrazzo floors can sell for as much as $60-$100 per square foot, while terrazzo tiles cost somewhere around $12-$30 per square foot with labor included! The reason that these tiles are so much more cost-effective than their cast-set cousins is simple; they consist of 72% recycled material. Using recycled material not only helps to keep down production costs, but it also helps to keep our environment clean.

Built to Last

Terrazzo tiles are made to be tough. Terrazzo is one of the oldest forms of flooring and some terrazzo floors have been in existence for centuries! They are resistant to damages caused by spills, scratches, and water. They are also stain-resistant and much easier to clean than carpet, hardwood, or other types of flooring. In most cases, a quick mopping will have them looking as good as new.

Why Terrazzo?

Aside from their eye-catching beauty, terrazzo tiles cost less than their traditional carpet and wood flooring counterparts and are easier to install, clean, and maintain; a simple mopping with warm, soapy water will have them looking as good as ever. They are also eco-friendly and come in a variety of options. Also, terrazzo is no longer limited to flooring. Options are now available for countertops as well.
