Marble is a stone that is commonly polished and utilized in fine building work such as countertops, fireplaces and floors. Marble may be white or colored and may contain veins running through the slabs. Marble is porous, and easily stained, or etched by acids, so a little extra care is required.
Most people are familiar with white marble and grey veining (Carrara marble), but is also available in shades of black, brown, green, gray, pink, purple, blue, yellow and more! The surface of marble can be polished to create a shiny finish or a honed finish, which is more of a matte finish.
Marble is elegant and will last a lifetime. The most popular application for marble that we install is floors, bathroom countertops, tub decks, fireplaces, etc. Marble is not commonly used in the kitchen due to being very porous. The chances of staining and etching are a lot higher due to being in a higher used area with so many different types of products being used in the kitchen (Juices and other acidic products). Over time as the marble is used it becomes more beautiful. It ages beautifully and truly makes it a one of a kind material. The price of marble varies like any other natural stone or quartz product depending on the color and how available the material is.

All spills should be wiped immediately, the same as you would on a wood surface. Avoid setting beverage glasses directly on marble as they leave rings. Coffee and wine stains can be difficult to remove!
After installation, Creations in Tile and Marble will seal your marble surface to help prevent stains from being absorbed into its porous surface. It is important to know sealing the stone does not stop staining from happening it just slows down the process. Acids must not come in direct contact with marble as they generally etch the surface. When marble tiles are properly sealed, damp-mopping should keep it clean with mild soap and water.
Be sure to reseal the surface annually or more often, if necessary, to ensure a lifetime of beauty from your marble countertops, floors or bathroom!
