Restoring an old Terrazzo floor in Bolton Town Hall

Terrazzo Restoration Bolton

This Terrazzo restoration Bolton project concentrated on floors in Bolton Town Hall had been under carpet for a few decades.  As part of a building refurbishment program, the council wanted the carpet removing, to expose the original Terrazzo floorings.

Carpet and glue residue on Terrazzo floor in Bolton Town Hall

I initially visited the site to do some sample Terrazzo restoration for the contractor, so they could decide on the optimum finish for the budget.

There was not enough money in the budget to restore the floor to their original finish, so they decided on a 200 grit matt finish.

Terrazzo Floor Grinding

I started by removing the old carpet residues and glue using my planetary grinding machine with diamond metal tooling. The grinding work exposed the original beautiful Terrazzo insets.

I was fortunate to have the assistance of two people from the main contractor. They brought me clean water and disposed of the grinding residues.

Terrazzo Honing

After grinding, I honed the floor with 50 grit, 100 grit and 200 grit resin diamond tooling. The work left a smooth matt finish.

After honing, the contractor had to grout the floor and apply a sealer.
