Marble is a type of metamorphic rock widely used in flooring and other building applications due to its strength and ability to take a high polish. Marble is prized for its timeless style, texture and high-gloss polish along with a rich palette of beautiful colors, marble has a place anywhere in the home. Its naturally random appearance, engineering characteristics and ease of maintenance makes it a premium choice for floors, wall claddings, table tops, wainscot, floors, vanity tops and other heavily used surfaces. Available in solids or dramatic veined varieties, marble may be carved or sculpted in many ways, making it one of the most versatile decorative stones. Often seen as a symbol of luxury, modern technology brings beautiful marble products even to budget-conscious homeowners.
