MARBLE SLABS for custom fabricatION

Marbles, serpentines, and onyxes are traditionally prized for their aesthetic appeal, accentuated by distinct veining and often bold colors. They are relatively softer than granite, although some serpentines are as dense as some granites. Marbles can be scratched by kitchen utensils so it is best to use cutting boards and other protective measures. Use only non-abrasive products when cleaning marble. Marbles can also be etched by chemical attack. These stones are calcium carbonate based and are damaged by exposure to acidic solutions such as lemon juice, tomatoes, vinegar, etc. The use of inappropriate cleaning agents may also trigger an acidic attack. Acidic solutions can permanently etch the surface of the material. The application of a sealer will reduce, but not eliminate, the vulnerability to acidic attack. Honing or removing the polished finish from marble will make the surface easier to maintain when used as a kitchen counter.

The first step is to visit one of our two showrooms – in Briarcliff Manor, NY in Westchester County or in Fishkill, NY in Dutchess County. You will meet with one of our designers to go over your project and select the appropriate material. An appointment will be made for you to see the actual slabs at our nearby Millwood shop. Understand that unlike the manufactured quartz, natural stone slabs such as marble, granite and quartzite have variations in color and vein patterns. No two slabs are ever alike.
