Q: Do you install or just repair Terrazzo.

A: We do not install new Terrazzo, our expertise is in repair, restoration, grinding and polishing old historical Terrazzo and bring it back to like new quality. This is far less expensive than installing a new Terrazzo floor. We, however, can suggest someone that can install if that is what you need.

Q: I have a crack that runs from one side of the house to the other. Can it be filled in?

A: When your slab for the house was installed, the terrazzo was installed over it. When the house settled, the foundation cracked. This can be filled with a matching resin color, grinding it down smooth and restored to a like new appearance.

Terrazzo Restoration

Q: Do I need to have my terrazzo floor fully restored in order to have them shinny?

A: Terrazzo Restoration is done in steps. Most often if the surface has not been maintained regularly then a full restoration will be needed. If however you are diligent in keeping up with a good regular cleaning and polishing every year, you can continue to do so. Unfortunately in most situations the answer is yes.

Q: If I have major stains on my terrazzo floor, can you guarantee that the stains will come out?

Today, contemporary architects often choose new terrazzo for floors both for interior and exterior use. However, the Mid Century Modern Terrazzo floors are making a comeback too. In most cases, old terrazzo can be refurbished for a fraction of a new floor’s cost.

Q: What is the Retroplate System?

A:The RetroPlate SystemTM turns bare concrete or terrazzo into an abrasion resistant, water repellant, dust proof surface that is easy to clean, and has a marble-like shine.

This patented system is designed for both new and existing floors. Using RetroPlate on a new floor will create a beautiful, maintenance friendly floor from the day the doors are opened. At an existing facility, RetroPlate can make the floor better than new. Whether it is used on bare concrete, colored concrete, or terrazzo, RetroPlate will create a masterpiece. Initially, the RetroPlate System was created as a means for refurbishing existing concrete. Because of its wide acceptance and its ability to create a showpiece out of old worn out concrete, specifiers and owners quickly began designating it for new concrete. The RetroPlate System is a complete process that can revitalize and strengthen concrete and terrazzo floors.

Q: When I pulled up my carpet I noticed tack strips on the floor, what is the proper way to remove them?

A: The proper way to remove them is to break of the strips leaving the nails in place. The nails are then drimeled off then sanded. You as the homeowner can do this, however if you are going to have the floor restored and polished, our company will also be able to assist you with that.

Q: My terrazzo floor has a lot of holes all over the place.

Terrazzo Restoration

A: Some times when there are holes all over the center of the floors, we call it pitting. This is when the terrazzo chips pop out. This can happen from moisture under carpet that covered it for years and that made the chips pop out. We can repair that with our special method. It isn't easy but it can be done. Our experience makes results.

Q: I had a contractor that used another company that claimed they did terrazzo polishing. The floor looks wavy and I can see every flaw! Is there a way to fix it?

A: Our Company is always sorry to read this question. Yes, there is something that can be done to fix this problem. What happened to your floor is a very common trade practice in South Florida. That is why we always want our customers to check and recheck your contractor when selecting someone to restore your Terrazzo flooring. Your alleged terrazzo pro probably applied a topical coating on it or brought the floor to a very high shine to save money and time on the polishing powder. What needs to be done is have us come in and hone the floor using 200, 400, and 800 resin diamonds, then polish. This way you will have a floor with the right shine not showing off the flaws. Terrazzo restoration is usually a one time shot process. Our shine has a history of lasting ten plus years before requiring any maintenance. We are sorry for your additional expense. Reputable Companies such as Colonial Floor Care would have had all the information and quality craftsmanship. We were featured in January 2006 in "Home Fort Lauderdale Magazine" for our terrazzo processes. The article is call “Timeless terrazzo”. It’s a good read and you will find it on our web site. Good luck.
