Marble Pros and Cons (Shelby Township, MI)

Pros:

  • When work is professionally done and high quality, marble use in home structure and design can significantly increase your house real estate market value
  • A truly unique material choice; as with other natural stone, no two pieces of marble are alike.
  • Marble enhances décor aesthetic appeal with a matchless beauty,
  • Properly cared for, natural stone such as marble is highly durable and will outlast nearly any other type building material.
  • Like other natural stone, marble is hypoallergenic.
  • Marble provides a more sanitary surface than some of the other material choices.
  • Marble flooring is easy to disinfect. I can help improve indoor air quality, as it does not trap pet dander, pollen, and other allergens the way carpeting does.
  • In warmer climates and during hot summer months, a marble floor is cooler than many other types of flooring choices.

Cons:

  • Marble requires specialized care. It will scratch, so requires use of a cutting board when preparing foods.
  • Because no two pieces are alike, matching marble tiles can be a real headache.
  • Although durable, hot items should not be placed directly on marble, or it could become scorched.
  • Marble, whether coated or uncoated, requires routine resealing to retain its beauty.
  • Uncoated marble requires extra care; it stains easily, and can “cloud.” 
  • Marble, being a porous material, is prone to staining. Food spills should be wiped up immediately,
  • Marble should be resealed periodically to maintain its attractive appearance. Annual marble restoration is recommended for flooring and countertops.
  • Like other polished natural stone, marble and granite tends to be slick when wet. Tip: although polished marble may look more elegant, honed marble (with a matte finish) is less slippery and a better choice for such room elements as floor tile. Especially in areas of the home such as the bathroom, kitchen, and front entry.
  • Marble, although less costly than in years past, is still on the expensive side.
