Tile Types - Marble Tile
Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of calcite which is formed when limestone is compressed for long periods of time. It is more beautiful and durable than limestone and is a preferred building material.
While it can be used for kitchen counter tops, this usage is not typically recommended as marble tile can stain easily. Marble tile is also less durable than the similar granite tile and can chip more easily than granite.
Marble tile is available in a wide range of colors and patterns and is suitable for use in both residential and commercial buildings. This type of tile can add sophistication and charm to any location.
