THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE…
Often seen as a lower-cost substitute for terrazzo, polished concrete is an increasingly popular flooring choice for big-box retailers, grocers, warehouses, gyms, and other large spaces requiring low-maintenance floors. In the end, however, it is no replacement for terrazzo.
In high-traffic areas, where design consistency and appearance is not a concern, polished concreted could offer an alternative to terrazzo flooring.
Polished concrete can mimic terrazzo but does not offer the design options, aggregate placement, cracking control, or sophistication of terrazzo floors.
Polished concrete does not show its age well, especially when coatings discolor and concrete cracks.
Terrazzo offers nearly limitless design flexibility, while providing a durable, sustainable, and low-maintenance flooring.
