Charlotte Marble Countertops

Charlotte Marble Countertops - Marble is formed from the re-crystallization of limestone under intense pressure and high temperatures within the Earth. During this process, minerals are introduced into the structure, which produce the beautiful veining and colors that characterize this stone. It is a metamorphic rock found in the mountainous regions of most countries of the world.   Colors vary from white to black, being sometimes yellow, red and green, and frequently beautifully veined or clouded.  Add in the different types of finishes, such as polished, honed, and leathered, the possibilities are endless!

Proper Maintenance and Care
Marble adds a sophisticated element to the area in which it is installed. Due to the natural characteristics of this rock, marble countertops require special care and maintenance. Marble consists of calcite crystal making it vulnerable to attack by mild acids, including those commonly found in kitchen and bar settings. Polished marble is especially susceptible to acids and any spills should be immediately cleaned. We seal every marble countertop after installation, and a new coat of sealer should be applied annually. With marble, there is always a possibility of scratching and staining, because the stone is not as hard as granite. After regular use, your marble countertop will develop its own unique personality and patina.
