Miami Florida Terrazzo
Updated: Mar 15
In today's post we'll take a look at some featured terrazzo installations in Miami, Florida market. I'll also discuss pricing as well as the typical terrazzo contractors that are installing in this area.
I attribute much of this to the many homes that were build in the late 50's and early 60's that had terrazzo floor throughout. This is unique to to Florida. Homeowners loved the seamless flooring that stayed cool in the summer and was easy to maintain. In Florida people are simply more aware of terrazzo as a flooring finish and thus you see it more often. South Florida is home to some of the most extravagant terrazzo floors in the country. Terrazzo installations range from high end residential to all realms of commercial construction projects.
The Miami Florida market can expect to see most terrazzo flooring to be furnished and installed for around $20 per sf. Of course this can vary based on the scope of the terrazzo installation, particularly size of the job and intricacy of the floor pattern. The four terrazzo contractors doing the majority of installations in Miami Florida are listed below:
