Beautiful Marble Countertops, Installed Right!

While granite is a great go to as a material choice for bathroom and kitchen countertops, marble shouldn’t be overlooked. Marble offers that classic look of sophistication and elegance that will last a lifetime. Typically marble comes in white with grey veins but also is available in more exotic variations in colors and patterns.

It is composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, typically calcite or dolomite and is a metamorphic rock. Although not as durable as it’s relative granite it can still be used from everything to bathrooms, kitchens, to fireplaces and walkways. HGG offers a great selection of marble for your next project and can help you decide which material works best for your needs.

Although marble is a very high-end and elegant stone it comes with a few tradeoffs in the kitchen. Marble has a hardness of 3 to 5 on the Mohs scale compared to granite at 6 to 7. With this you want to be careful using marble in high traffic areas such as your kitchen. Even though HGG always seals our natural stone countertops it is a lot more soft and porous than granite which leaves it more vulnerable to stains, scratches and it etching and has to be resealed more regularly to avoid unwanted blemishes.

If you have a low traffic kitchen you shouldn’t have any issues with a marble countertop. Basic maintenance consist of wiping it down with a microfiber cloth and avoiding harsh abrasive cleaners that could be absorbed in your marble. Feel free to contact HGG for more advice on maintaining and sealing your marble.
