3 Common Issues When You Refinish Terrazzo Floors

Posted By : Aubrey Mead , on Feb, 2016

 

You move into your new home and want the old floors to go. Until you remember that you’ve got terrazzo flooring in place. So instead of tossing all that away, you think about how great it would be to refinish those floors. Repurposing or recycling old terrazzo floors can be tremendously rewarding, with results so wonderful you don’t want to consider any other flooring again–maybe not even for the next several years.

That’s because terrazzo floors are highly durable. They’re resistant to stains, so long as their protective first layer remains firmly in place. It’s also low-cost and low maintenance–two great reasons for you to love your terrazzo floors even more.

Common Issues
However, before you get started, you’ll have to familiarize yourself with common issues and problems. Here are a few of them from Thrifty Fun:

  1. You don’t have enough experience level. As with all types of flooring, terrazzo does come with its own set of worries. For instance, if you’re thinking about tackling the floors on your own, you might want to make way for someone more experienced and professional at the work. Don’t treat it like a simple DIY project because it isn’t. So if you’ve got the experience, and can rent the proper tools, go ahead. But if you’re not confident of your DIY skills or if this is your first time to ever do it, it might be better if you hire a professional to take over the work instead.
  2. You don’t know what you want. What kind of floors do you want? Palatial-looking floors or good looking floors? If you’ve figured this out, then you’ll have an easier time finding the right contractor for the job.
  3. You don’t know how to find a contractor. While finding an experienced contractor for the work can be tough, it’s not impossible.
