Terrazzo Masters with extensive training and knowledge work together with Architects, Interior Designers, and General Contractors to blend, prep, install, finish and restore terrazzo surfaces. Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast for flooring, wall treatments, or other appropriate surfaces. It consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, plastic, or other suitable material, poured with a cementitious binder/acrylic or epoxy resin. Carefully shaped metal strips divide sections, changes in color, or material in a pattern. Additional chips may be added atop the mix before it sets. After it is cured, it is ground and polished smooth or otherwise finished to produce a uniform surface.
Terrazzo Masters polished concrete services provides a beautiful alternative for your flooring and surface design. We apply our experience and specialty equipment to your concrete surface through three stages:
Grinding and Surface Prep: This process removes the top surface of the floor and levels out undulations, preparing the floor for fine polishing and sealing. Efficient dust control keeps the process very clean. The equipment used on industrial projects is usually 3-phase 480v, so an adequate power source will be required or generators are available.
Polished Concrete Staining and Design: Once the floor has been ground off, but before sealing has taken place, coloring stains can be used to create patterns in the concrete surface. Designs in the form of templates can be used in conjunction with the stains, making it possible to reproduce the look of other floor finishes or adding some creativity to the surface (logos, images, symbols, etc.).
Polishing and Sealing: Lastly, fine-grinding your concrete will generate a shine, and sealing will, in most cases, prevent the absorption of contaminants. Polished concrete is extremely low maintenance, and presents a relatively inexpensive way of upgrading a plain concrete slab to a bright, attractive terrazzo-like finish.

Terrazzo is a sustainable solid surface that is hand-crafted by artisans and intended to last the lifespan of the building. If terrazzo in an older building is worn, dull, or damaged, it can most likely be restored to a variety of finishes that require NO coatings, sealers or waxes. The restored finish is achieved by our multi-step mechanical grinding and polishing process. Additionally, we handle any patch work and stain removal that might be required.
Terrazzo Masters has extensive experience with restoring, repairing and maintaining terrazzo flooring and surfaces. We handle all phases of repair-work, including: grinding, large and small patchwork, filling voids where pitting has occurred, troubleshooting stains and discoloration, and any other obscurity that might be part of the restoration project.
