Standard and bespoke
Terrazzo originates from Italy where, around 500 years ago, quarry workers used stone offcuts for flooring in their own homes. At first, the finish was rough-set and uneven but as methods progressed, the flexibility and benefits of terrazzo were recognised. With refined polishing techniques, opportunities for bespoke colouring and flexibility in thickness, it fast became a valued material.
Diespeker has been working with terrazzo since the company was founded in 1881. The material became very popular in the UK in the mass of post-war building projects as a cost effective alternative to popular stones marble and granite. In recent years, the natural stone has enjoyed something of a revival, due to its resilience, easy maintenance and design qualities, as well as the need to refurbish old terrazzo flooring.
Diespeker terrazzo can be bespoke made to virtually any specification.
Best for: internal and external flooring, cladding, kitchen and vanity tops and bespoke uses.
