Conditions of Sale

The company Franchini Pavimenti guarantees the client work performed in a workmanlike manner for the duration established by the Italian Civil Code with express reference to Article 2226.

The finished terrace must have an even distribution of granulate, both in colour and pebble size. The granulate must also be sharp, i.e. ‘split’ in its best section (especially larger pebbles). The floor must be well levelled in all its parts, compatible with the nature and characteristic of the terrace.

In order to avoid unpleasant misunderstandings when handing over the work, however, it is good to remember that:
Venetian terrazzo is a conglomerate of marble grit and cement. Therefore, its final appearance, especially when viewed against the light, cannot be as perfectly homogenous as a slab of marble or granite. The typical terrace polish is, in fact, slightly ‘amber’ and never ‘mirror-like’ as is the case with other types of flooring.

  • For the same reasons described in the previous point, it is normal to find small holes on the surface of the finished terrace. If, however, the number or size of these were to be significant, restoration work would be necessary.
  • Despite the care taken in the choice and installation of materials, cracks in the terrace surface cannot be completely ruled out, even years later. The causes may be many and varied and not always ascertainable at the start of the work: shrinkage phenomena, low thickness, micro-sagging of the structure, etc. In any case, thanks to special types of synthetic resins available on the market today, it is always possible to intervene, even over the years, to restore the original state of the terrace.

Terrace sanding is performed with manually operated s Slight undulations of the surface will therefore be unavoidable, naturally if they are contained to an acceptable extent. However, by its very nature, the terrace tends to rise slightly near the edges. This is partly due to the type of mechanical/manual sanding – uncomfortable in the vicinity of walls – and partly to a natural effect due to the shrinkage of the cement binder.
