ADVANTAGES OF PRECAST TERRAZZO
Precast Terrazzo Quality and Control
Precast terrazzo units are manufactured under a controlled environment, thus can help the quality and accuracy of the product. Once each piece of terrazzo is completed, it is packaged securely until it is needed for installation at the job site.
Shorter Completion Time
Precast terrazzo units can allow contractors to have more control over the job site and their schedule. Because stair treads, countertops, and wall base is manufactured offsite, there is less onsite labor needed. The products are delivered to the job site at a high quality and installed fairly quickly, helping contactors meet project deadlines.
Independent of Weather Conditions
Precast is manufactured offsite in a covered environment which means terrazzo precast is not weather dependent like other building products. Terrazzo units are delivered on time and allow for a cleaner and safer working space for contractors.
Durability of Precast Terrazzo
Terrazzo is known for its durability, lasting the lifetime of building structures. While terrazzo is commonly used as a flooring application, the durability is transferred in the making of stair treads, countertops, and wall base. It can go through years of wear and tear and remain resilient.
Custom Precast Terrazzo Fabrication in Virtually Any Color and Size
Terrazzo provides a wide range of design options. It’s one of the only building products where you can create anything you like with excellent durability and quality. And the colors hold well over time. Aggregates are different in types and sizes as well. You can gaze over marble or glass chips and select unique blends for extraordinary results. Furthermore, products can be manufactured in various sizes and dimensions allowing architects to plan a precast element built to fit their indoor space.
When it comes time for a flooring contractor to install a terrazzo stair, countertop, or wall base, the materials are made beforehand. There is no pouring or curing onsite. Materials are shipped from the manufacturer’s facility to the job site where the installer will place the precast unit in its designated location per design specifications.
