MARBLE

 

 

 

 

 

We quarry our curated selection of marble tile and slabs both domestically and internationally. We source a premium grade of material and purchase blocks and slabs only after a thorough inspection process. While other materials may be available with the same name, the quality may vary; we advise you to compare the quality of the actual materials prior to specifying or purchasing.

Marble is a classic architectural material and is suitable for a variety of applications from countertops to building facades. Please read Material Considerations to understand the characteristics of marble prior to making a selection.

MARBLE
All marble will acid etch when exposed to acidic foods such as lemons
or tomatoes. Most marble has a moderate absorption rating and will stain
when exposed to oil and highly-pigmented liquids. Most marble has a low
abrasion resistance rating; it is likely to scratch. Most marble has naturally
occurring cracks and fissures. In general, light-colored marble is difficult to
maintain in flooring applications with heavier traffic and dark marble tends to
show more scratching.

 

 

HELPFUL TIPS:

To reduce the appearance of etching in kitchen countertop
applications, choose a honed, white marble with a low-moderate
absorption rating.
• To reduce the appearance of staining, always wipe up spills
immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and
stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
• Always use a neutral detergent to clean marble.

Always check the abrasion resistance rating. For marble with a lower
abrasion resistance rating, use walk-off mats at entrances and expect
the material to patina rapidly.
• If acid etching is an issue, choose a material with minimal acid
sensitivity rating, such as quartzite or granite.
• Expect to see factory-repaired cracks and fissures. The quality of the
repair is dependent upon the factory of origin, the fabricator of the
stone and the installer.
