Granite & Marble Tiles

Granite & Marble Tiles

Granite & Marble Tile is a great and timeless look for the kitchen countertop, floors or bathroom.

Marble: is typically a calcium based, sedimentary material, formed underground from decaying plant and mineral life compounded under heat and pressure for millions of years. It is typically polished to a high shine and has an elegant look and quality to it. One way to remember the durability of marble is to remember this word association: marble is calcitic, so anything acidic will negatively affect it. Acidic things include wine, fruit juice, food; things you typically find in the kitchen. This is why we do not recommend marble for kitchens. It can be stained and permanently etched.

Marble Uses: Marble makes a great surface for flooring throughout the home, shower walls, fireplace surrounds and countertops where food will not come into contact with it.

Granite: Cooled and solidified magma creates the stylish substance used for granite tile flooring. Characterized by small, natural flecks at the surface, granite tile features a dramatic mix of rich colors and striking depth. Like marble, it’s a durable and versatile material that’s wonderfully suited for floor tile. Its great natural strength and resistance to scratching, acids and staining makes it a solid choice for any walkway.

GRANITE CARE

Granite countertops in your bathroom or kitchen will last a long time and look great with the right care. They maintain their polished surface and look new even a decade later.

Sealing
After your countertop is installed, protect it with a sealer. Sealing it doesn’t make it impervious, but it does help it repel stains and resist cloudiness or scratches.

Ensure that the counter has been dry for at least 6 hours then apply a liquid or spray sealer, let sit for 30 minutes and wipe the excess with a soft, clean cloth. You can apply a second coat 24 hours later if you desire. Reseal your countertops about every two years.

Daily Care
Granite is porous so it’s a good idea to keep counters as dry as possible. Use coasters under drinks-especially drinks with alcohol or citrus juice-and clean up spills promptly. Do not place hot items directly on the countertop.

Clean countertops with a non-abrasive, neutral cleaner. You can buy stone soaps or simply use a mild dishwashing detergent. Rinse it and dry well to avoid streaks. Keep acid and abrasive materials away from your granite.
