Factors to Know When Planning Your Next Terrazzo Project

It’s a wise idea to have a thorough game plan before breaking ground on a significant Terrazzo project, either indoors or outdoors. We’d like to show you the best ways to plan for success and maximize the durability and aesthetic quality of your floors with Terrazzo.


These are the primary things you should understand prior to any project: the significant value of a Terrazzo project, the costs involved, and the advantages of hiring a professional.

General Guidelines for Terrazzo (Indoors Versus Outdoors)

So, we handle both interior and exterior Terrazzo installations, which can cover everything from an outdoor patio to a kitchen and dining room floor. The difference between the two boils down to a slight difference in material density.

For outside patios and pool decks, Rustic Terrazzo is the way to go because of its slip-resistant properties. It’s not as smooth as the indoor version, but the tougher composition makes it safer and more functional outdoors, especially if water comes into play.

On the inside, the standard Terrazzo is a durable and versatile material, composed of marble, granite, stone, and other aggregate. This makes it both attractive and a great application for indoor floors, stairs, and even countertops.

Why Terrazzo Adds Significant Home Value

This adds value to your home by adding curb appeal, and significantly more durability, provided you have someone install it the right way. Other materials, like hardwood, although beautiful, cannot withstand the elements or the Florida humidity. This makes them less useful for patios and driveways.

Terrazzo accomplishes so much anywhere in or around your home, and you won’t have to redo the project for several years.

Cost Factors

Since there are different types of Terrazzo (we mentioned our two favorites), the cost range can vary substantially depending on the substance quality. Terrazzo can run for anywhere between $70 to $100 per square foot in various local markets.

How do we determine the cost of the job?

When you call us for a complementary estimate, we’ll go over the material you choose, measure the square footage required, and create a rough estimate. The only other factor that may influence the project cost would be accessibility and the current surface. Occasionally, certain areas are tougher to reach and make installation take longer.

Why Hire a Professional for Terrazzo Installation?

Floor installation is a dedicated trade, which means you may not achieve optimal results with the DIY approach. While our services are a decent cost investment, you can look over examples of our outstanding workmanship (in our online portfolio) to verify the premium results we produce.
