Architects and commercial installers in the Charleston area find value in terrazzo flooring for their architectural and design projects. As of late terrazzo is experiencing a renaissance mainly for its sustainable characteristics like the use of recycled content and zero chemical emissions. This helps architects specify terrazzo for their green construction projects. Today commercial property owners seek building materials with longlasting durability and strength, beautiful design capabilities, and low maintenance costs. Terrazzo covers that and more.
Charleston, South Carolina is the largest city in South Carolina. Near the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, locals recognize the city for its rich history and well-preserved architecture.

To best understand terrazzo, let’s review the invention of terrazzo. Venetian marble workers reused scrap marble pieces to build inexpensive flooring surfaces for their homes. This breakthrough evolved over time with the introduction of epoxy terrazzo in the 1970s. Epoxy terrazzo cures faster but has other beneficial attributes including its expansive design flexibility and increased durability at 3/8″ thickness. The most important thing to remember is that terrazzo started off as an inexpensive flooring system and the same is true today. Epoxy terrazzo has the lowest lifecycle cost in flooring today.
