Marble Slab in the GTA

 
Marble slab countertops are a perfect choice for discerning GTA homeowners who want to bring the natural beauty of fine stone to their living space. Today, more countertop materials than ever are available to designers and consumers, but the ne plus ultra remains marble slab. This fine stone, which has been used in luxurious art and architecture through the ages, is now an affordable option.
 
There are various types of stone countertops to choose from when you are building or renovating your kitchen. Granite is one of the most popular choices, due to its attractive variety of colours and its durability. Quartz is an engineered stone that looks good and has the benefits of both natural and manmade substances. Stone tiles are also a good option. But if you want the very best, then marble slab is your only choice!
 

Why Marble?

 
Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed when limestone was subjected to extreme heat and pressure in the earth’s crust. Fossilized materials in the limestone form large, coarse grains of calcite during this process of recrystallization. Other minerals present in the limestone affect the composition of the marble that is formed. Temperature also affects the process, as does the presence or absence of water. The minerals present give marble a wide variety of colors. Pure calcite marble is white. Marble containing hematite is reddish in colour. Limonite gives marble a yellow colour, and marble with serpentine is green.
 
People who love fine stone are drawn to the beauty of marble slab. Marble is a translucent stone that allows light to enter and produce a soft "glow". The luminous quality of a marble countertop can make it the focus of your kitchen and a beautiful addition to your home, like a work of art designed by nature! Nothing can imitate the look of real marble; any marble accents give a home an unmistakable aura of elegance.
 
Marble also adds value to your home. A recent survey of homebuyers showed that fine stone accents such as countertops rate high on the list of desirable elements. It’s estimated that a modest investment in marble countertops can result in a much higher resale price for almost any house. And marble has never been so affordable.
 
Marble is durable, cool and gorgeous. A marble countertop is a versatile element that looks beautiful with any type of décor. Most people choose a satiny high polish, but a honed (matte) finish is also available. In addition, you can choose from a large number of edges ranging from simple to ornate.
 

Caring for Marble

 
Marble is a softer stone than granite, quartz or other types of stone commonly used for countertops. Granite scores a seven on the Mohs scale of hardness, but marble only rates between three and four. Because it’s more porous than granite, it can stain more easily. Marble should be resealed on a regular basis, and spills of acidic substances such as red wine, tomato juice or orange juice should be cleaned promptly. However, this porous quality is part of what gives marble its luminous glow. With proper care, marble will remain stain-free and as beautiful as ever.
