Kemna Tile – Terrazzo
Even though it’s only been a few years since Terrazzo became a full in-house division for Kemna Tile, these same craftsmen and crews have been working with Kemna for over fifteen years.
The new Terrazzo Division created benefits for everyone involved. Kemna invested in upgraded terrazzo equipment, which gave our craftsmen more capacity and efficiency. Kemna Tile benefits because they have more control, and now have another important hard flooring capability to offer their client. And the customer benefits because they have just one company to coordinate and handle all of their hard-surface flooring on their projects.
Here are some of the many places you’ll find Terrazzo:
- Museums, Theaters, Libraries, Courthouses, Civic Buildings
- Airports, Train Stations, Transportation Centers
- Hospitals, Healthcare Facilities
- Hotels, Restaurants, Retail Stores, Shopping Malls
- Schools, Universities
- Corporate Offices, Campuses, and Headquarters
- Homes and Residential Buildings
Historically, the first know uses of terrazzo date back thousands of years in areas around Turkey. Terrazzo as a craft became known to the new world over 500 years ago when Italian marble workers found a practical use for marble chips when embedded in cement. Since then terrazzo has continued to evolve into a worldwide industry.
The reasons are many. Terrazzo can effectively cover very large areas, is durable for use in places with high foot traffic, is relatively easy to maintain, excellent for clean environments, and can find new life for recycled and otherwise discarded materials.
But one of the most compelling benefits of using modern terrazzo is the almost endless variety of beautiful colors and design possibilities.
Kemna Tile gives you everything you’ve come to expect from a top quality, professional Terrazzo Contractor – and so much more.
