Over 130 Years of Terrazzo Excellence

For centuries buildings throughout the world, including Chicago, from historic Union Station to the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, from the legendary Merchandise Mart to the bustling O’Hare Airport, have been designed with Terrazzo. Established in 1884, John Caretti & Co. is one the leading Terrazzo contractors in the country. We are the recipients of many National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association (NTMA) Honor Awards and the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BOC) Awards.

Terrazzo’s decorative, economical, durable and seamless construction make it a very easy choice for many building owners. Terrazzo is cast on site, mixing custom marble or granite aggregate blends into custom matrix colors. Through this process and with the setting of divider strips terrazo provides for an infinite combination of color and patterns.

John Caretti & Co. has pioneered many important technical advancements for Terrazzo and other floor surfaces, including the development of thin set resin systems and low maintenance high polished Terrazzo.Most recently we were able to transfer our grinding techniques to new and aged concrete, providing the latest in high polished surfaces.

Our highly trained staff will evaluate your needs and help you determine aggregate size and color, matrix color, and stripping dimensions.  Our high standards for quality craftsmanship and service are evident in every job we do.  For more than 130 years, Caretti has been synonymous with quality terrazzo flooring.

In 2000 John Caretti & Co. became part of the Krez Group, a collection of companies that share a vision of providing builders and architects with high-quality products and superior service. Whether under foot or over head, the Krez Group family of companies bring real value to every project.
