Marble Floor Tile
To bring to life Marble material, it helps to polish the surface on a schedule. The vibrant colors will begin to glow and shimmer due to it’s translucent material makeup. Light penetrates the surface of Marble and illuminates some of the minerals beneath the surface, which gives off that iridescent type glow. Marble flooring is an all natural product, it’ll not cause an impact on the environment when its disposed of later in the future. However, Marble isn’t cheap when being compared to other floor tile material in its class.
Marble will cost upwards to $10/Sq Ft for the material alone, and the installations will see significant price increase if the project requires a custom design, mosaic or other fancy inlays. Marble’s best characteristics are noticeable when it’s well polished, and as a result they tend to become very slippery. Since slipping hazards are quite common with Marble, we recommend having area rugs with rubber matting on the bottom to maintain a good footing position. Marble. having a highly reflective surface, means its more likely to have visible scratches. We advise all of our customers to exercise great care when moving furniture over Marble.
Having food or drink of higher acidic levels that spill on Marble can be problematic. Stains are a little more difficult to remove. A Marble floor installation is one of the more difficult types to install or replace.
If you have old Marble that is need of major repair, we recommend sealing and tiling over it.
