Marble Installation Edmonton

Widely used and sought after, marble has been the choice of elegance and sophistication since antiquity. It’s easy to add a touch of class to your home or renovation with marble floors, countertops or other features. Are you curious about marble’s usefulness and cost-effectiveness? Read on for a brief summary along with advantages and disadvantages of marble.

Marble is often a naturally occurring metamorphic rock– essentially a mash-up of two existing forms of stone– but the term can encompass other crystallized minerals used in construction (limestone is a common substitute). Regardless of its geologic origins, all marble used in construction is warm, durable and beautiful.

Marble is a premium choice for floors, wall-claddings, tabletops, wainscotting and vanity tops.
