Ceramic tile and cementitious terrazzo have served both decorative and functional purposes for centuries. These popular floor and wall finishes are not only aesthetic, but durable, resilient, easy to clean, and resistant to mold, bacteria, and chemicals. Learn about the manufacture, installation, performance, deterioration, and restoration and repair methods of these materials. Since floor and wall materials typically experience the most wear in a building, maintenance and repair can be different from traditional methods, therefore the emphasis of the discussion will be on long-lasting repair methodologies. Discussion of newer tile setting and finishing methods as well as the evolution of terrazzo material and current industry standards for installation will also be covered.
