In Situ Terrazzo Flooring Repairs

Terrazzo flooring repairs often involve the replacement of broken or even missing floor tiles. It is not uncommon, even with our vast network of tile manufacturers, to find that the specific tiles involved are no longer made. This is usually encountered with Terrazzo and marble floors in very old buildings.

Terrazzo Tiles Made In Situ

In these instances we need to complete an in situ repair, where we literally make the replacement tile in position, within the floor.

We have recently completed the in situ repair of a Terrazzo tile floor in the entrance hallway of a large house in Bury, Manchester. The in situ development of a Terrazzo or marble floor tile is as follows:

  • We take a bag of the appropriate marble chippings and mix the chippings in with a matrix background of the appropriate colour.
  • The mix is then trowelled into the floor space.
  • We then wet roll it with specially made metal rollers. This brings the fats up to the surface.
  • The floor is allowed allow to cure.
  • We then carbon stone grind the area concerned, exposing the marble.
  • During this process air holes will form in the matrix. This requires a fine diamond grind, followed by a 3 coat sealant application to fill the air holes and to finally harden off the floor.

Further Examples of In Situ Floor Renovations:

Terrazzo Floor In Situ Renovation - John Moores University, Liverpool

Here we have undertaken a large scale renovation of an existing Terrazzo floor. In situ repairs were required to deal with numerous cracks and holes in the floor. The work involved mixing and trowelling in the specialist tile repair compound. This was then ground, re-sealed and polished. This large scale Terrazzo floor renovation project in the Liverpool Mount Pleasant Campus, took 3 weeks to complete.

Terrazzo Floor In Situ Repair - Matlock, Peak District

This large country house in Matlock has a connection with the spa treatments business in nearby Buxton. Some time ago it had been divided into 2 homes and we had refurbished the Terrazzo floor in one of them. The owner of the second house sought to return it to the Victorian style and called us in to refurbish its Terrazzo floor. This floor, with a marble mosaic edging, had endured some hard wear and we did in situ repairs to deal with cracks, staining and holes. We also installed movement strips where the stone floor butted up to a timber floor.
