Marble is a long-lasting option when it comes to flooring. The
installation of marble tile is very similar to that of ceramic tile,
although a wet saw should be used for cutting the tiles to size.
Marble is formed when limestone deep in the ground has been changed
over long periods of time into a hard composition of crystals. This
process is called recrystallization.
Marble flooring is installed by gluing the tiles closely together on
the floor with the proper adhesive. Grout lines are either very thin or
marble tiles are placed up against one another creating no need for
grout at all.
The marble tile we offer is renowned for its ornate, refined beauty.
For centuries, marble tiles have been a symbol of affluence, exuding
sophistication and an air of artistry that make marble tile a classic
choice. A common feature in the Greek and Roman spas of the ancient
world, to Renaissance courtyards in Europe, all the way to the Trump
Tower in New York City today, marble has been a heavily relied upon
natural stone. We are committed to continuing that tradition, while
going beyond your expectations too.
Our marble tile flooring is quarried and cut in Italy, Spain, and
Turkey, and is available in a variety of different colors to suit your
artistic, and practical, tastes. Veined with rivulets of subtle color on
varied background of earthy tones, marble tiles from Kesir, Licante,
and Carrara Stone can offer a subtle or a bold feature in the modern

Marble tile is popularly used in: modern kitchens, hallways, bathrooms and foyers.
Marble is a metamorphic rock created from the metamorphism of
limestone, which is formed largely of calcite. Marble is widely
produced, with marble quarries all over the world.
Marble Flooring is usually made from square marble flooring tiles.
These vary in size from 12″ to 24″ square. Mesh-backed marble patterns
are also available, for areas or borders. These comprise small pieces of
marble, cut carefully to size and shape, which are arranged in patterns
and mounted on a mesh backing. Marble flooring tiles are available in a
wide range of colors, ranging from black and gray through beige and
green to white.
One of the main benefits of marble flooring is that it doesn’t hot up
easily, mainly because of its low heat conduction properties. This
makes it the perfect flooring choice for houses in the tropical regions.
Marble floors are resistant to scratches to quite an extent. So, after
installing them, you will not have to worry about your dog’s paw nails
scratching the floor. Marble comprises of one of the most durable
materials used for flooring. It is virtually indestructible. It is not
too difficult to keep marble flooring clean and well maintained,
especially in low traffic areas. Marble flooring comes in lots of
varieties and styles, suiting almost every need and budget.
Caring For Your Marble
If you want to maintain the luster and shine of your marble flooring,
make sure to polish it on a regular basis. Marble flooring is also
capable of absorbing and getting stained. If, and when, you manage to
get something spilled onto the floor, immediately wipe it off with a
damp cloth. While cleaning your marble floor, make sure to keep the
products with chlorine at bay. Sweep and vacuum the floor on a daily
basis, or as often as possible, to keep it clean and shining. Whenever
you want to clean your marble flooring, make use of lukewarm water and
soap for the purpose. In case of regular cleaning, wiping the floor with
a damp, or barely wet, sponge will work quite well.
I used SD Flooring & Design for both carpeting and vinyl work. I found that their pricing was pretty reasonable and I was happy with their selection. They brought in two different crews to do the work. The carpeting crew was great! They showed up on time, were polite, and made sure to explain everything to me. They cleaned up well after themselves as well. If it were the carpet crew alone, I would give them a 4 or a 5 for workmanship and customer service. However, the vinyl crew was terrible. The guy who did the work was extremely unreliable. He never showed up when he said he would. Even the boss was flaky and often came at the wrong time. This was frustrating to me because I don't live at this house, so every time they showed up at the wrong time, I had to drive about 20 minutes to go let them in. He was also really rude to me! He did not answer my questions. When he finished, I thought it was really poor workmanship. They are supposed to come back next week and fix the problems with the flooring. So, I guess we will see how it goes. I am still willing to give them a second chance, but I'm really disappointed with the crew so far. If you are thinking about using them, I would say that they are fine to buy from, but if you are looking for vinyl flooring, find your own contractor!
