What is Marble?

Marble is a natural stone that has been used as a building material for thousands of years. It’s a metamorphic rock that comes in many different colors and styles. After the marble is cut into slabs and is polished, the marble slabs receive a glossy shine on its surface which is very appealing.

One thing marble is known for is having very unique veining and colors, some that cannot ever be matched. Although it’s a beautiful stone, it needs more maintenance than almost any other stone.

Caring for Marble Countertops

Although marble looks great, it’s a high-maintenance countertop. It needs to be sealed very often since it’s a very porous stone. It is heat resistant, but it’s still recommended to put a towel or trivet underneath a burning pot. When spills occur, they must be cleaned immediately since the porous stone will absorb the liquid and make a stain. We recommend that you use a cutting board rather than cutting directly on the stone. Also, be sure to never sit or stand on the stone since it can crack easily.
