Four Marble Floor Tips from your Stone Consulting Expert
- If the surface reflection is not right, the job is incomplete. Reflection is the most telling aspect of what you see. All stone has personality. It wants to look a certain way. The mineral and chemical make-up of the stone determines that. If you try to make a stone do something its not meant to do– it is an exercise in futility.
- Remember that form follows function. If you install a delicate soft stone because it’s pretty, and you ignore its function you will be disappointed sooner rather than later.
- Picking a natural stone because it’s inexpensive is not wise. This is because the associated labor costs are high and you may wind up having to live with your marble floor problems for a long time. The same holds true in your selection of the tile setter – it’s not a good idea to try and cut costs by going with a lesser experienced installer.
- Don’t forget that natural stone requires periodic proper maintenance by trained professionals.
