The old terrazzo is interesting but some of the things they do now are amazing. When I priced it for my home I was looking at $10- $25/ ft... that mae me realize I could get real marble for way less. I love the marble floors. (terrazzo is marble chips and epoxy)

Question Mixing Terrazzo

Tallrick, can you tell us what you learned about how to mix the terrazzo slurry? What are the other critical parts and surprises a novice needs to anticipate? Are there any good books on this?

Love terrazzo.

Very expensive. Very Beautiful. Very durable. Epoxy terrazzo holds up better than concrete if it is installed correctly. It is easy to mess up.

Grinding is messy and loud.
