FLOORS | CRAZY MARBLE

CRAZY MARBLE - MAN MADE USING NATURAL MATERIALS
Crazy Marble floor like mosaic/terrazzo floor, is made from waste and cut marble and stone pieces laid on a white cement-concrete base. When marble flooring is installed in the main building the waste and cut pieces can be utilized in laying this flooring around the exterior of the house.

Here, I have described the Characteristics of Crazy marble along with my rating. The overall rating will help you compare Crazy marble with other floor options.

CHARACTERISTICS OF CRAZY MARBLE FLOOR:
Composition: Marble, granite, quartz and/or glass chips mixed with white cement - marble powder mix.
Occurrence:  Crazy marble is man-made, but is composed of natural material.* 7
Physical Characteristics: Crazy marble floor is hard, durable and long lasting. * 8
Seamless flooring: Crazy marble floors are cast and polished at site and have a seamless appearance. * 9
Porosity:  If properly sealed Crazy marble floors are impenetrable to water.  * 7
Scratches: Crazy marble floors are durable and do not take as much scratches as Marble * 8
Stains: Crazy marble floors are stain-resistant when sealed well. * 7
Choices: Different colours, patterns and polishes can be created on Crazy marble floors.  * 7
Cost: Crazy marble floors are easy to install and use waste marble pieces. Hence the cost is considerably lesser than other types of floors. * 9
Maintenance:Crazy marble floor is easy to maintain because of it’s shiny surface but requires periodic polishing. *7
Green rating: Crazy marble floor doesn't harm the environment as it is made of natural materials including sand, marble, and other types of stone.* 9

OVERALL RATING OF CRAZY MARBLE FLOOR: 7.8
ADVANTAGES OF CRAZY MARBLE FLOOR:
Durable: Can last a lifetime.
Dense and water-resistant: if sealed well. 
Easy to maintain: You simply have to sweep up the floor often.
Cool under foot: but not too cold.
Appearance: Crazy Marble  provides a decorative look to a space.
Easy installation: Crazy marble flooring can be installed by anyone using the waste and cut marble and stone pieces.
Environment-friendly: Crazy Marble flooring is recyclable.
DISADVANTAGES OF CRAZY MARBLE FLOOR:
Relatively expensive: If the marble pieces are the waste leftovers from the marble used in the building, it works out as a relatively cheap option. On the other hand, if marble is bought for using in crazy marble flooring, it is an expensive alternative.
Slippery: when wet.
Hard underfoot: because crazy marble floor doesn’t have any cushioning.
Heat loss: Crazy marble floor is a good conductor of heat so it leads to heat loss.
Stains: Crazy Marble floor gets stained by acidic substances like vinegar and tamarind.
Polishing: Crazy marble flooring requires heavy polishing at the time of laying. Periodic polishing is required to maintain the shine.
SUITABILITY OF CRAZY MARBLE FLOOR:
Crazy Marble Flooring being an extremely durable, resistant to weathering and cheap option (waste marble) is used outside the house, in external areas such as driveways, private road, verandahs and courtyards etc. But the irregular appearance does not make it a popular choice indoors. Ceramic or Vitrified tiles or terrazzo that are comparable in price are preferred inside the house.
