Marble Floor Tile
It’s important to have a solid maintenance schedule for taking care of your Marble countertops and floors. Highly polishing them on a regular basis will help bring out the vibrant colors, shimmer, and natural beauty. Its natural translucent characteristics allow light to penetrate the surface, and illuminate the minerals beneath the surface. This natural effect help give off that iridescent warm glow. Since Marble is mined from the Earth, it is not an impact on the environment in the future when it’s life as a building material comes to an end. Based on the process to acquire Marble, it isn’t an economical material to purchase.
Marble costs roughly $10.00 per square foot, and the installation pricing does increase if the project requires a completely custom design, fancy inlays or mosaics. Some of the best attributes of Marble is noticed when it’s very well polished. However, as a result of this maintenance process, they’ll end up becoming quite slippery. We recommend using big area rugs with gripping rubber matting under them to maintain a good grip. This helps prevent people from accidentally falling, especially while wearing socks. Since Marble is a highly polished type flooring system, we advise all customers to be extremely cautious when moving furniture over Marble flooring.
Marble floor installations are one of the most labor intensive systems to have installed. Please be aware of the possibility of acidic foods and beverages spilling on Marble. The potential for a stain occurring is a bit higher with Marble than other natural materials like Granite.
As a means for repairing old heavy marble slabs, we recommend sealing and tiling over it with new tile.
