Granite vs Soapstone | Countertop Comparison
 
01:51
Let’s talk about the differences between Granite and Soapstone Granite is an igneous rock formed by liquid magma that cools and solidifies making it extremely durable and resistant to both heat and scratches. Granite will last for a lifetime with the proper maintenance. We recommend sealing your granite countertops every six months and cleaning them daily. Granite has countless different color and pattern options, and no slab is will ever be the same as another since it is a natural stone, making each project truly unique. At Marble.com, we receive shipments of new granite colors daily from around the world. Soapstone is composed of mineral talc, which makes soapstone on the softer side of natural stones, but the balance of quartz in the composition of soapstone countertops increases its strength. Soapstone will not stain and it is also heat resistant. Since soapstone is non-porous, it doesn’t need sealing and bacteria will not be able to penetrate it, making it a sanitary countertop option. The color of soapstone darkens with age, giving a beautiful worn look that is sought after but many elite interior designers for luxury projects. It comes in varying shades of grey and can have hints of green, black and blue. For a more rustic look, some applications of mineral oil will darken soapstone evenly for an appealing rustic appearance. To recap, granite has a wide selection of color choices and is also very durable. It will fit any project from kitchens to bathrooms and everything in between. However, if you’d prefer a rustic look with less maintenance, soapstone is a great choice. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Grilling with Granite In this video, the Marble.com TV team discusses the advantages of grilling with granite. If you’re looking for a helpful, efficient, and unique way to enhance your grilling experience, then it’s time to start using granite on the grill. Grilling with granite is easy to do, and it will cook your food quickly and evenly. The granite also cleans in seconds, which will save you time and allow you to cook different types of food without any leftover scraps or residue. For example, we at Marble.com were able to cook caramelized apple biscuits, followed by pizza, then steak and vegetables, and then pizza again, and each item came out perfectly. Before you cook a meal with your stone, make sure to clean the granite off with soap and water, then dry it thoroughly. Then, place the stone on your grill and give it a thin layer of cooking oil such, as vegetable oil or olive oil. Next, turn on the grill and allow the stone to heat up. Remember that the stone will get very hot, so be careful, and do not touch make direct contact. Now you’re ready to cook. Once you are done, cleaning your granite is a breeze. Just scrape the excess food to one area, then push it into a waste container. If there are any remains that are tough to remove, simply apply water or lemon juice to break them up and then scrape them off the stone. This can be done in just seconds, and then the stone can be left outside with the grill until the next use. As you can see, grilling with granite is an easy way to improve your grilling experience. Keep in mind that not all granite stones are suitable for grilling, so please check in with a Marble.com representative so that we can find you an ideal stone. --- Visit our website: http://www.marble.com/ Check out our new video site: http://www.tv.marble.com/ Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: http://instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom/ Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: http://www.mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments.

Choosing the Right Sink | Marble.com
 
02:51
When it comes to designing a kitchen, bathroom, or bar many times the sink is over looked. Although, choosing the right sink doesn’t have to be complicated, it is important to do your research. Determining what is ideal functionally and aesthetically will help you pick the right option for your project. The under mount stainless steel sink is the most popular option for the kitchen. They are typically inexpensive and easy to clean. Because these sinks have no lips, liquid can simply be wiped right into it – making cleanup convenient. Stainless steel sinks are available in many different shapes and sizes. They are extremely durable, affordable, and versatile. Stainless steel sinks fit the décor and style for virtually any kitchen. In addition, it’s possible to shape stainless steel sinks into a customized space. When deciding between single bowl and double bowl sinks it is important to consider the function of your space. If large pots and pans are common in your kitchen, then single bowl sinks would be a better option. Another option is the cast iron sink. When it comes to durability and attractiveness, a cast iron sink reigns supreme. These sinks are built to last a lifetime and have a much more rustic aesthetic appeal than a stainless steel. Cast iron sinks are fairly heavy, and will require extra support to hold its weight. If you are looking for an eye-catching sink, there are other options such as brass or cooper. These sinks, while beautiful, will require more maintenance. For this reason, they are typically found in lower flow areas such as bars. When it comes to bathrooms, the most popular choice is porcelain. Since the bathroom sink does not see the heavy lifting of pots and pans they can often be a more artistic statement then its kitchen counter part. The sink options for a bathroom are nearly limitless. For a really spectacular look a custom sink can be made out on natural stone, like the one we see here. The sink is by far the most utilized appliance in your kitchen and bathroom, so when shopping for a sink make sure you take into account its function, placement, and beauty. --- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Granite vs Onyx Countertops
 
02:44
Granite and Onyx are two of the most desired natural stones for home projects such as countertops and bar tops. They are both beautiful and unique materials that have their own unique appearances. However, granite and onyx have many differences to be aware of before installing them in your home. Durability: Granite is one of the toughest materials known to man. Granite is a naturally occurring rock formed under the Earth’s surface by liquid magma that cools and solidifies, making it extremely durable and resistant to heat and scratches. Onyx is much softer and therefore more fragile. It will require some extra care compared to granite. It’s not intended for heavy pots and pans or chopping food, which will scratch it. Staining: Because both are natural stones, which are porous, granite and onyx require regular cleaning and sealing to avoid staining and etching. Although both are susceptible to staining, Onyx will require more attention, because it is more porous. A special stone cleaner like AGM Countertop Cleaner, which has a small amount of sealer in it, is ideal for keeping your onyx countertop safe. Color Selection: Granite can be found in many different colors and patterns, making each project truly unique. Granite is abundant and can be found all over the globe. Marble.com receives shipments of new colors every day from around the world. We have the largest selection that can be found the United States for fabrication and installation. Onyx has a stunning appearance, which features rich parallel layers with contrasting shades are naturally formed over the course of thousands of years. It has a remarkable one-of-a-kind style. The lavish beauty of Onyx caught the attention of civilizations dating back to the ancient Egyptians, and Greeks, who utilized the natural beauty of Onyx for making jewelry and extraordinary cravings. A special feature that certain Onyxes have is its ability to be backlit because of their translucency. This is a fairly inexpensive process that truly allows the stone to exhibit its pure beauty and makes it the focal point of any room. Overall, granite is better suited for high traffic areas such as kitchen countertops and active bathrooms because of its superior durability. Onyx is perfect for less demanding areas like low traffic bar tops and can also be beautifully displayed as a piece of natural art. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

How Natural Stone is Made | Marble.com
 
02:13
At Marble.com, our stone comes from the best quarries located around the world. Since we partner with these quarries directly, our customers are sure to get the best prices possible. Natural stone is formed starting miles underneath the Earth's surface. Boiling molten rock builds pressure and rises through the cracks in the Earth's surface. The magma eventually hardens and transforms into a material known as granite. The material can then be mined from the Earth. Once the stone is extracted from the mountain, the blocks of stone are broken down into a more manageable size. These pieces are then cut into slabs using a high-powered gangsaw. Water is used in combination with saws to prevent heating. After the slabs are cut, they are polished to enhance the natural beauty of the stone, as they begin to close resemble the finished product. Marble.com has many years of experience and an outstanding reputation in the industry. This means that quarries reserve their most premier stones for us. To ensure the highest quality product possible, our representatives visit the quarries and hand-select only the best stones. Then our slabs are shipped directly to us.

Top 5 Granites for Dark Cabinets
 
03:53
When selecting a stone for your kitchen, there are many options to choose from, especially with our selection of over 2,000 different colors of natural stone in stock. Thankfully, our expert team can assist you throughout the entire process and even help you decide on what stone fits best with your kitchen’s décor. Dark cabinets are a popular option that we see here at Marble.com, and today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite stones for them. Ambrosia White, also known as Amba White, and Andromeda White, is a wonderful granite with an off white background that is filled with light grey and green veins along with some tiny burgundy spots. As we see in this quaint kitchen, it is the perfect countertop material to pair with dark cabinets. The white and grey tones of the Ambrosia White countertops create a beautiful contrast. A multi-colored backsplash of white, brown and grey is the perfect element to marry the diversity between light and dark colors in this kitchen. Oscuro Mist Satin is a black granite from India with long, consistent white veins. This attractive granite makes a beautiful countertop for any kitchen, especially one with dark cabinets. Although combining black and brown may seem unnatural at first, as we see here, it is certainty an extraordinary design scheme when executed tastefully. The white kitchen island and the abundance of space are able to lighten up the area despite the prominent dark features. Additionally, the honed surface of the Oscuro Mist Satin countertops adds a unique textual dimension to this kitchen. Giallo Ornamental, also known as Amarillo Ornamental, and Giallo Santo, is an attractive, speckled granite filled with natural brown and grey colors, which achieve a simple, yet refined style for kitchens with dark cabinets. Because of this granite’s predominantly white base, it allows the room to appear large and spacious, even though the area between the countertop and refrigerator is relatively snug. Additionally, stainless steel appliances also help to create the illusion of space, by reflecting lights from the windows and the attractive hanging fixtures. Tan Brown is an Indian granite, also known as Chestnut Brown, and Copper Antique, which features a consistent speckled pattern of black, brown and dark red throughout the stone. In this recently renovated kitchen, the rich brown and red hues of Tan Brown have inspired dark cherry wooden cabinets and breakfast bar stools to match. The light backsplash serves as a balancing visual element that livens up the space and creates a stunning visual appearance that is complimentary to Tan Brown. Stainless steel appliances complete the look of this attractive kitchen. Classic White Quartzite is a stunning white quartzite from Brazil with areas of grey highlights and occasional dark veining. Many designers and homebuilders use Classic White Quartzite as a more durable alternative for the luxurious classic marble look, which has caused this stone to recently become very popular. In this ying and yang styled kitchen we see how the elegance of Classic White claims the focal point when perched upon dark cabinets. Chandeliers and stainless steel appliances complete the clean and polished décor. Whether you’re set on picking a countertop to compliment or contrast your dark cabinets, one of these 5 stones is sure to do the trick. Remember to consider additional elements such as your appliances, flooring, backsplash, and lighting when deciding on your countertop material. Thanks for watching.

How to Choose an Edge for Your Countertop | Marble.com
 
02:38
Choosing the perfect edge profile can be as big of a decision as the countertops themselves. To learn more follow the link below https://marble.com/countertop-edges With a seemingly endless number of options to choose from, it can be a difficult task. Today we’ll discuss the form and function of different edges, and pair up some popular edge profiles to common decorative styles. Several factors should be taken into account when thinking about edge profiles. The type of edge profile should match the style of your project. Ideally, straight or quarter bevel edges are great for the clean lines and angles of modern and contemporary styles. More intricate edges like Cove Bullnose, Cove Ogee, or Cove Dupont may compliment the look in a Classic or Traditional setting. A great compliment to a more decorative edge profile would be to find crown moulding in a similar style. Another thing to take into consideration would be how the space and countertop gets used. Round edge profiles, like Quarter Round, Half Bullnose, and Full Bullnose all feature simple, rounded edges which may be safer in high-traffic areas than the more angled profiles. We’ve discussed two general styles, and their recommended edge profile combinations, and there are countless other styles and combinations to choose from, but in our experience here at Marble.com, very rarely do our clients rigidly stick to any one style. We may see a kitchen that is primarily classic in style, but uses straight edges on the countertops. Alternately, a homeowner may have a more modern style to the kitchen, and use quarter round instead of something more angular. The thing to remember here is that rules are meant to be broken. If you’ve designed your kitchen in one style, don’t feel obligated to choose an edge based on that style if there’s a different edge you like more. Take a look at some edge and countertop combinations. The level of maintenance required for your edge profile may also influence your choice. The basic rule is that simpler edges require less maintenance, while dirt and dust can collect in the complex edge profiles. With that in mind, we recommend more complex edge profiles for areas of lower traffic, such as bathroom vanities. Whichever combinations of stone color and edge profile you choose will be cut with the speed and accuracy of marble.com’s computer-controlled machines, giving you a perfectly smooth edge every single time. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Quartz vs. Quartzite
 
02:44
Quartz and Quartzite are both popular materials for projects at Marble.com. Although, both are durable and make visually stunning choices for countertops, they have some significant differences. Quartz is an engineered stone that is made up of 95% quartz and 5% polymer resins. It is nonporous and does not require sealing, making it ideal for high traffic kitchens and bathrooms. Quartz comes in thousands of colors and has consistent patterns that make seams virtually invisible. Quartzite is a completely natural stone formed by heating and pressure under the Earth's crust. It bears a striking resemblance to marble because of its white and gray colors, while being better suited for high traffic areas because it is less porous. Quartzite is also highly resistant to heat and scratches. Sealing twice per year is required. --- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments.

Marble vs Travertine | Countertop Comparison
 
02:26
Both marble and travertine are natural stones that can be the perfect addition for low traffic areas, such as bathroom vanities, bath surrounds, fireplace surround, wash stations, and bulter’s pantries. Both of these stones will require some maintenance, as both are vulnerable to acidic liquids. Bi-annual sealing is important to getting the most out of these materials. Despite their similarities there are some key differences to be aware of. Marble and slate can both provide stunning beauty as countertops or accent pieces in homes, apartments, and businesses. Though both are stylish and will increase the equity of any home, the durability and composition of these two materials greatly differ. Marble is a natural stone that is widely desired because of its elegant appearance. It is formed when limestone is exposed to very high temperatures under the Earth’s crust. It comes in a variety of gorgeous colors, including its most popular color, white. Many artists used marble during the Renaissance Era to create some of the most iconic statues known to man. Marble stone slabs often have distinct veins running through them that can enhance the look of any bathroom or kitchen. While the appearance of marble is highly sought-after, it requires more maintenance than some of the other stone materials carried by Marble.com. For this reason, it is recommended that marble be used for low traffic spaces, such as master bathrooms. Those who frequently bake enjoy Marble countertops because they stay cool and do not conduct a lot of heat. Marble has a classic beauty, which is one of the reasons why it is so popular. The look and feel of it simply cannot be replicated. Travertine is a form of limestone that is forged in mineral hot springs all around the world. It is known for its consistent color, long streaks, and elegance. Travertine’s soft look is perfect for giving a relaxing vibe to any area. It is available in many different beautiful shades of beige, white, cream, red and gold. With the proper maintenance travertine can last for a very long time, however, since it is porous and vulnerable to acidic liquids it will require proper sealing. Travertine is best suited for low traffic areas like bath surrounds, bathroom flooring, wash stations and showers. It can also look fantastic as a kitchen backsplash. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

What's the Right Countertop Thickness?
 
03:35
At Marble.com, we’re the world leader in the fabrication and installation of natural stone. Visit a link below to learn more https://marble.com/articles/what-to-know-about-countertop-thickness-for-marble-or-granite One of the most common questions customers ask us is, “how thick the stone should be for their project?” All of our stones, whether it is Tan Brown, Peregrine C, or Giallo Napoleone, arrive to our yards in large slabs at 3cm, or one and a quarter inch thick, but a width of 2cm, or three-quarter inch, is available too. While 3cm stone countertops are thicker than 2cm countertops it does not necessarily mean they are superior – both have specific advantages. With proper care and maintenance, either thickness can work well. Let’s talk about the differences of 2cm and 3cm stone to help you determine which stone is best for you. While you can most certainly use a 2cm stone for your kitchen or bathroom counter, we do not recommend it. Since the 3cm stone is thicker than a 2cm stone, it is going to naturally be stronger, so it would work best for areas that see high traffic. Especially for something like limestone vanity tops or a marble counter, which are rather soft materials. The 2cm thickness allows for the same beautiful aesthetic as the 3cm, but for a slightly cheaper cost and less weight. This is perfect for those who like to rearrange their space often, or would like to spruce up their décor without breaking the bank. One of the ways that Marble.com separates itself from other installers of natural stones like Classic White quartzite and Butterfly Green is our dedication to providing a reliable and robust product. There are some distributors who offer a 2cm stone, with a manufactured edge, which gives the illusion of a 3cm stone. This is called a mitered edge. However, this edge requires multiple seams, and limits the style of edge profiles you can choose from. Although this option may seem cheaper, it is substantially weaker than a 3cm stone, which may result in costing you more money in replacements and repairs down the road. Another less durable method that many other countertop companies use is a laminate countertop, which consists of a very thin stone wrapped around a piece of wood. This method is much weaker than a solid slab of natural stone and restricts what you are able to do stylistically. For more decorative uses of natural stone, such as fireplace surrounds, coffee tables, shelves, and frames – a 2cm stone can be perfect. The 2cm thickness allows for the same beautiful aesthetic as the 3cm, but for a slightly cheaper cost and less weight. This is perfect for those who like to rearrange their space often, or would like to spruce up their décor without breaking the bank. Let’s review instances where a 3cm thick stone would best suit your project: -Kitchen Countertops -Kitchen Tables -Bathroom Vanities -Desktops -Grilling Stations And a 2cm stone would best suit: -Coffee Tables -Decorative Cutting Boards -Fireplace Surrounds -Decorative Framing -Shower Seats In addition, here at Marble.com, we also offer a custom-made 6cm marble or granite countertop, also known as a laminated stone, for those who are interested in a bold aesthetic for their home or business. A 6cm granite countertop can be used for any project, however, check with a sales associate to see if it fits into your budget. As you’ve seen, no matter which thickness of natural stone you decide to use for your project, rest assured you will be getting a timeless and durable piece of art from Marble.com. Natural stone countertops will endure the test of time and drastically increase the equity of your home. At Marble.com we have over 2000 natural stones, such as Astoria granite, Bianco Antico, and Viscont White for you to choose from. So what are you waiting for?

Concrete vs Butcher Block | Countertop Comparison
 
02:27
Concrete countertops are constructed from general-purpose mortar mix, which is one part cement and three parts sand. In order for these counters to appear more appealing than standard concrete sidewalks, additional colors are added. Although concrete provides an interesting industrial look, it has many disadvantages, some of which can be extremely expensive and cumbersome. Concrete must be sealed or it can be damaged by water. Not only will it stain if water seeps in, concrete will harbor bacteria, making in unsanitary and dangerous to prepare food on. Even with the proper sealing, moisture or oil can cause the countertop to look like it is wet. Concrete countertops are also rather expensive, and can cost more than average natural stone countertops. Butcher block is commonly crafted out of maple, oak, cherry, or walnut. It was originally used for preparing meat in butcher shops and has now become a popular design trend in kitchens. Butcher block provides a classic, artisan feel that will add a touch of character to any cooking space. Their natural appearance provides a warm and inviting vibe that creates a pleasant and charming environment. Butcher block is also eco-friendly because it is constructed from reclaimed lumber. Despite the attractive appearance of butcher block, there are some concerns when it comes to durability. A common misconception is that since butcher block is used as cutting boards that homeowners can freely cut on it. However, this is not the case. Cutting on butcher block countertops will leave scratches and dents that will have to be sanded down and refinished in order to be repaired. Although, this is a process that most homeowners will be able to do themselves, it is still time consuming and labor intensive. Even if homeowners are not cutting and chopping on their butcher block countertops, it can easily be damaged by daily wear and tear. This will cause it to look weathered and worn if not regularly cared for. The prices of butcher block countertops largely vary and are determined by the quality of wood. Let’s recap the pros and cons of butcher block. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for the world’s greatest selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Quartz vs Soapstone | Countertop Comparison

Quartz and soapstone can both provide stunning beauty as countertops or accent pieces in homes, apartments, and businesses. Though both are stylish and will increase the equity of any home, the durability and composition of these two materials greatly differ since quartz is an engineered stone and soapstone is natural. Quartz that is used for countertop purposes is actually an engineered stone created by man from natural quartz minerals. Slabs of quartz used for countertops contain about 93% crushed quartz combined with about 7% polyester resin. These stones contain consistent patterns, and can come in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and textures. Since quartz is man-made, it is completely non-porous, and the consistent patterns make it easier to hide seams. The stone is also highly durable, and can do well in a high traffic area. Quartz is made by a variety of popular companies, such as Caesarstone, Quantra, and Santa Margherita. Soapstone is a natural stone like granite, so no two slabs are ever the same. It is composed of mineral talc, which makes it quite soft, but the balance of quartz included the composition of soapstone countertops will increase its strength. Soapstone comes in varying shades of grey and can have hints of green, black and blue. Soapstone will not stain and is also heat resistant. Since soapstone is non-porous, bacteria will not be able to penetrate it. The color of soapstone darkens with age, giving a beautiful worn look that is sought after but many elite interior designers for luxury projects. It will require some applications of mineral to darken evenly. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Save Money on Exotic Stones for Countertops. Vanities & More
 
03:12
Are you looking for exotic and rare natural stones for your countertop but are also on a tight budget? Marble.com has the solution. With our 7 locations and over 2,000 different colors of natural stone, one of our advantages is our ability to offer different price points for the same materials so you’ll never run out of options. Let’s look at some examples. Gemstone is one of the most exotic and exclusive natural stones in the world and Marble.com has a tremendous assortment of it. Gemstone’s unique, eye-catching appearance can be the focal point of any room and will add equity to a home or business. Despite its delicate look, gemstone is actually quite a durable material. It is both heat and stain resistant. Gemstone is awe-inspiring as a standalone piece of art and that same tremendous beauty can bring a unique exclusiveness to any bathroom vanity. Certain types of gemstone are also translucent, as you can see in this gorgeous example. However, if the cost of gemstone does not fit into your budget, you can achieve a similar look by using a more affordable Onyx stone. Onyx has a comparable exotic, rare aesthetic that delivers a “wow” factor to any project. Just as with Gemstone, some types of Onyx are also translucent when cut to a certain thickness. It can be used for anything from a bar countertop, to a vanity top, butler’s pantry, wall surface, flooring, or even just as a decorative accent piece. Travertine is another beautiful, exotic stone that can add style to any home. Here, we have a stone called Travertine Giallo which is golden brown with wonderful layered textures and veining. This rare travertine is an ideal material for bathroom countertops, shower surrounds, fireplace surrounds and flooring. But if your allotted budget doesn’t line up with this stone, then consider Giallo Reale an Italian limestone, which is slightly different but has the same dominant color of Gold as Travertine Giallo. This limestone has a great “beachy” appeal because of the aquatic fossils that are embedded in it. It is well suited for the same applications as Travertine such as: bath surrounds, vanity and wash stations. Giallo Reale is available in a more affordable price category, giving more breathing room to your budget so you can potentially splurge on other things like a premium edge or a DiMonte sink. If you would like to check out some other types of exotic stones, visit Marble.com where you can easily browse through our inventory from the comfort of your own home. After finding a stone or two that you like, come to one of our extensive stockyards and showrooms where you can meet our knowledgeable sales staff and see our beautiful stones in real life, which is important since every slab of natural stone will have some variations.

If you prefer a natural look, quartz will not provide the unique appearance of natural stones. Quartz should be avoided in areas that are exposed to UV rays for an extended amount time. This is most noticeable when one portion of the countertop has more exposure to UV rays than other portions over the course of several years causing it to fade. To recap, the reasons that quartz is an ideal countertop option are that • It has a Consistent Design, which is ideal for large projects. • It is Highly Durable, which • Makes it Stain Resistant • Scratch Resistant • And Heat Resistant. The few disadvantages of quartz are that it is… • Not recommended for fireplaces • Some quartz can fade if exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time • Unlike natural stone quartz is man-made, therefore, it’s not one of a kind Overall, Quartz is a one of our most recommended countertop materials because of its easy maintenance.

Granite, Marble, & Other Natural Stone Do's and Don'ts | Marble.com
 
02:17
Here's a handy list of do's and don'ts that we've come up with for granite countertop owners. DO clean your granite countertops daily. It will require less effort in the long term and if any spills happened while you were out it will help you spot them faster. DON'T use products containing ammonia, bleach, or any other product that is not specifically intended for use on natural stone. While these agents may not damage the stone itself, they will deteriorate the sealer more quickly. Some may also cause a film to build up on the surface, making it appear dull and and greasy. DON'T ever put drain or toilet cleaners on the countertop. The chemicals in these products can permanently stain and discolor the stone. DO use coasters for drinks. Especially on marble surfaces, which even when perfectly sealed, can still etch from acidic liquids. DON'T let spills sit on your countertop for extended periods of time. The longer they are on the surface, the higher the chance for them to penetrate into the stone, leaving permanent damage. DO blot spills instead of wiping as it won't spread the spill any farther. DON'T worry if a stain develops. It can be removed by a simple, effective and inexpensive process. DO use a cutting board when preparing food. Even though granite's surface is hard and unlikely to scratch, it can happen. Also, cutting directly on granite will cause your knives to dull quickly. DON'T ignore your granite's maintenance. Natural stone countertops are very durable and made to last a lifetime but need to be taken care of periodically to retain their beautiful appearance. And finally DO enjoy your countertops. With proper care they will provide decades of elegance and practicality. Now that you know granite do's and don't, you should also learn how to clean and seal your countertops, too. --- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom --- Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments.

Quartzite is a versatile, beautiful and durable countertop option that is becoming increasingly popular for both kitchens and bathrooms. It has a similar appearance to marble, but with increased durability that is better suited for busier areas. Quartzite is a natural stone that is formed from the intense heat and pressure of metamorphism, which causes the quartz grains to compact and become tightly interwoven with each other, resulting in very hard and dense quartzite. It has a natural, glassy luster that creates a unique shimmering appearance. Quartzite is primarily white or grey in color, although, there are some other shades are available as well. Each slab has intricate veins with wavy swirling patterns. Quartzite is ideal for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, bath surrounds, fireplace surrounds, bar tops, wash stations, Butler’s pantries, and any other project that you are planning for. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Onyx and gemstone can both be stunning countertops or accent pieces in homes, apartments, and businesses. These two materials will add equity and style to any area, but are mainly recommended for low flow locations like master bathrooms, bath surrounds and wash stations. Onyx is a unique and exotic stone that is sure to make a breathtaking impression. Its stunning appearance, which features rich parallel layers with contrasting shades are naturally formed over the course of thousands of years. It has a remarkable one-of-a-kind style. The lavish beauty of Onyx caught the attention of civilizations dating back to the ancient Egyptians, and Greeks, who utilized the natural beauty of Onyx for making jewelry and extraordinary cravings. A special feature that certain Onyxes have is its ability to be backlit because of their translucency. This is a fairly inexpensive process that truly allows the stone to exhibit its pure beauty and makes it the focal point of any room. Onyx is best used in low trafficked areas, such as home bars. In a retail setting, we recommend it to be used merely as an artistic accessory. Gemstone has one of the most recognizable appearances of any natural stone. The various rocks that make up its composition are semi-precious stones, which are commonly used for jewelry. Gemstone is a standout material that is truly like no other. Once installed, it can be spectacular, especially when backlit with LEDs, similar Onyx.

Quartz and onyx are fairly different materials in terms of composition, style and durability, however, both can be fantastic countertops depending on the given project. Quartz is one of the best-engineered materials available for countertop projects in areas that are not appropriate for natural stones for one reason or another, whether it be a children’s bathroom, changing room, or business on a budget. Quartz is an engineered stone, meaning that it is manmade from natural quartz minerals. Slabs of quartz used for countertops contain about 93% crushed quartz combined with about 7% polyester resin, which is a synthetic material. Quartz stones have consistent patterns, and can come in a wide variety of colors, patterns and textures. Since quartz is man-made, it is completely non-porous meaning that the stone will never stain, and the consistent patterns make it easier to hide seams, which is great for large areas. The stone is also highly durable, and is great for high traffic areas. Marble.com carries quartz that is made by a variety of popular companies, such as Caesarstone, Quantra, and Santa Margherita.

Marble vs Limestone | Countertop Comparison

Both marble and limestone are natural stones that can be the perfect addition for low traffic areas, such as bathroom vanities, bath surrounds, fireplace surround, wash stations, and bulter’s pantries. Both of these stones will require some maintenance, as both are vulnerable to acidic liquids. Bi-annual sealing is important to getting the most out of these materials. Despite their similarities there are some key differences to be aware of. Marble is one of our most popular stones at Marble.com. If you are looking to add a sophisticated and luxurious look your home or business, there is no other countertop material that rivals marble. Marble is a metamorphic rock that evolves from limestone. Marble has a wide color selection ranging from white, black, grey, pink, grey, red and blue. Because of marbles high-end appearance it is commonly used in elegant settings like master bathrooms, wash stations, bath surrounds and fireplace surrounds. Since marble maintains a consistent temperature, it is also ideal for baking areas. Marble.com has an extensive collection of marble that will be able to fit whatever your project is. Since marble is a natural stone it is porous in nature. Try to avoid placing harsh cleaning chemicals and acidic liquids, like wine, on marble counters to advert potential staining, however, daily cleaning and bi-annual sealing will be all it takes to retain the beauty and elegance of your marble countertops. Marble can last a lifetime with just a minimal maintenance. Limestone is a sedimentary rock primarily composed of calcium carbonate. It is known for uniquely having ancient aquatic fossils embedded it as a result of being formed in clear, warm, shallow marine waters. There are many limestone–forming environments around Earth, such as the Caribbean Sea, Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, Gulf of Mexico, around Pacific Ocean islands and within the Indonesian archipelago. Limestone is slightly softer and more porous than marble, so avoiding areas that experience a high traffic flow, particularly with acidic liquids, is best. Limestone will look fantastic as a bathroom vanity or bath surround because it provides a “beachy” look from impressions left on the stone by aquatic fossils and shells. It typically comes in natural colors such as grey, tan or brown and has a solid overall appearance. Its visual versatility makes it easy to accommodate any design scheme, which makes Limestone is especially perfect for renovations. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Granite is one of the toughest materials known to man. Granite is a naturally occurring rock formed under the Earth’s surface by liquid magma that cools and solidifies. Granite is resistant to heat and scratches, which makes it great for any countertop project. Granite can be found in many different colors and patterns that vary from slab to slab, making each project truly unique. Granite is abundant and can be found all over the globe. Marble.com receives shipments of new colors every day from around the world. We have the largest selection that can be found the United States for fabrication and installation. Limestone is an organic, sedimentary rock. It is formed from the remains of tiny shells and micro-skeletons deposited on the seabed. Because of this you can sometimes see these fossils embedded into the stone. Over the years this sediment was compressed to form solid rock. Limestone is formed in layers - called bedding planes. These bedding planes contain vertical cracks called joints. Joints and bedding planes make the rock permeable. Limestone is much significantly softer than granite and because of this, it is better suited for low traffic areas like master bathroom vanities and wash stations. Granite, on the other hand, can be used for nearly any project from kitchen countertops to outdoor bar tops because of its durability. Granite comes in many colorful varieties including even some rare colors like red, blue, green, and purple, as well as every neutral tone, too. Limestone is mainly white, brown, yellow, and grey. Its visual versatility makes it easy to accommodate any design scheme, which makes Limestone is especially perfect for renovations. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Granite vs Slate | Countertop Comparison
 
01:58
Let’s compare Granite and Slate, both of which can be great countertop options depending on the project. Granite is an igneous rock formed by liquid magma that cools and solidifies over time, making it extremely durable and resistant to both heat and scratches. Granite is porous and will have to be sealed to avoid damage from water and acidic liquids. It will last for a lifetime with the proper maintenance. We recommend sealing your granite countertops every six months and cleaning them daily. Granite has countless different color and pattern options, and no slab is will ever be the same as another since it is naturally formed. Granite can be used for any countertop project, and is our highest recommended option for kitchen countertops. At Marble.com, we receive shipments of new granite colors daily from around the world. Slate is a metamorphic rock that is stylish, durable, and non-porous, meaning that it does not require sealing. Slate has a subtle and uniform look that is ideal for rustic design settings. Its color selection mostly consists of black and grey variations and is significantly limited compared to granite. The strength and water resistance of slate make it a viable option for kitchens and bathrooms alike. However, slate is prone to chipping, so extra caution should be taken when handling heavy pots and pans. Both slate and granite are able to withstand extremely hot temperatures so cooking vessels straight from the oven are not a problem. To summarize, granite has a seemingly endless selection of colors whereas slate is mostly limited to blacks and greys. Granite will require sealing to avoid water damage, while slate is non-porous, so it does not. Granite and slate are both strong materials, but granite does have a slight edge since slate is prone to chipping. Marble.com has the largest selection of natural stone in the industry and carries over 2,000 different colors of countertop materials including both granite and slate. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

All About Slate Countertops

Slate is a foliated and homogenous metamorphic rock that is formed during the transformation of mudstone and shale under relatively low pressures and temperatures. It is the finest grained metamorphic rock. Slate is durable, stylish, and non-porous. It has a low moisture absorption rate, which means it will not stain or etch from acidic liquids such as red wine, lemon juice, and tomato sauce, so sealing is not necessary. This makes slate a perfect option for a bar top or butler’s pantry. Its color selection mostly consists of grey and black variations, and is limited compared to other natural stone countertop options. The uniform, grainy texture of slate is perfect for achieving a rustic, worn look. However, it should be noted that slate is a more fragile than granite, and can chip or crack if exposed to high traffic. Because of this, we do not recommend slate as a kitchen countertop. Now lets take a look at the pros and cons of slate side by side. Pros Slate is non porous It does not require sealing And has a beautiful rustic aesthetic Cons Slate is fragile and can chip or crack It has a limited variety of colors And it is not recommended for high traffic areas ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Bianco Antico Granite | Marble.com
 
02:46
Bianco Antico is a beautiful and elegant white granite that is quarried in Brazil. This beautiful natural stone is recognized as having grey quartz deposits, hints of burgundy garnet, and black mica. Bianco Antico makes for a great countertop in kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor living spaces while also being impeccable for fireplace surrounds. Its other names include Lennon, Arctic Ice, Ecuador White, Aran White, and Diamond White. Here is a great example of Bianco Antico in a beautiful outdoor setting. This pristine slab was cut and edged at Marble.com’s facilities. By using our state-of-the-art fabrication machines we were able to use just one slab to create this entire bar top, meaning there are no unsightly seams. Our brand new Breton 400 CNC machine was able to craft the perfect Half Bullnose edge by using its advance laser guided system. Another beautiful example of Bianco Antico is this traditional kitchen with a unique island and raised panel cabinets. The contrasting tones of the cream-colored cabinets and island countertop allow the shades of this stone to standout as this kitchen’s focal point. Stainless steel appliances pair nicely with Bianco Antico to create a sleek, modern aesthetic that can easily be livened up by accent pieces. In this open kitchen, we see Bianco Antico countertops with a Cove Dupont edge. The neutral colors of the granite pair well with the white cabinets, earthy hardwood floor, and stainless steel features around the room. Bianco Antico is truly a natural stone that can compliment any setting, which is why it is one of our most popular granites at Marble.com ---- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

The Best Way to Template Countertops
 
01:36
Once you’ve chosen your stone, it’s time for templating. Remember, that you’ll need all of your cabinets installed and your appliances on site. We can help you remove your old counters if necessary. Our templaters are experienced professionals who use precise laser templating machines to create accurate and detailed measurements for your new countertops. They are also trained to give you design advice on edge profiles, bump outs, and how to avoid having seams. Other stone fabricators, due to their reduced inventory, will often try to force you to fit your entire design on one slab, resulting in unsightly seam placements. At Marble.com, we charge by the square foot, not the slab, and since we purchase colors directly by the container, you can rest assured that you’ll receive the optimal design for your layout. --- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for the world’s greatest selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

How to Seal Granite, Marble, & Other Natural Stones | Marble.com
 
03:02
One of the most important elements to maintain your natural stone countertop is to seal it. Visit a link below to learn more https://marble.com/articles/how-to-seal-granite-and-keep-it-looking-brand-new Normally your granite countertops are sealed when they’re installed, however, to reinforce their ability to protect against stains, we recommended sealing them bi-annually. Every stone differs in mineral composition so the periods between sealing will differ as well. One way to test if your countertop needs to be seal to put a few drops of water on the surface. If they stay beaded up, the sealer is doing its job. If they start to spread and seep into the surface, it’s time to reapply the sealer. There are numerous sealers available but in our experience the one that we have found to be the best is Superior Zero Ultra Stone Protector, which can be found at MrStone.com. Before starting any work with the sealer, always carefully read the instructions and warnings on the label. For the Superior Zero Sealer, the application is very simple. First remove all objects from the countertop and clean the surface – let it dry for a few minutes. Apply a generous coat of sealer so that the surface is completely covered. If you have a large kitchen, then work in sections. Then let the sealer sit for 15 minutes and absorb into the stone. If during that time, you notice the sealer seeping into the surface, then apply another coat. It’s important not to let the seal dry completely on the surface that can create a hazy residue, which is very difficult to remove. If this does happen, however, apply more sealer, wait a few minutes and then wipe it dry with a paper towel or dry cloth. After the 15 minutes have passed and the sealer is still sitting wet on the surface, you can wipe it off. That’s it! You’re done. It is recommended to let the sealer cure for one hour before using your countertop and you should avoid cleaning it for the next 24-hours. There’s no exact formula on how often you should seal your countertop because as we mentioned before, different minerals compositions require different care, however, we have found it best to seal natural stone countertops bi-annually. This will ensure that you will enjoy the beauty and the elegance of your countertop for decades. Now that you know how to seal your countertop, the next thing to learn is how to seal it. --- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn

Quartzite vs Onyx | Countertop Comparison
 
02:42
Onyx and quartzite can both provide stunning beauty as countertops or accent pieces in homes, apartments, and businesses. Though both are stylish and will increase the equity of any home, the durability and composition of these two materials greatly differ. Onyx is a unique and exotic stone that is sure to make a breathtaking impression. Its stunning appearance, which features rich parallel layers with contrasting shades are naturally formed over the course of thousands of years. It has a remarkable one-of-a-kind style. The lavish beauty of Onyx caught the attention of civilizations dating back to the ancient Egyptians, and Greeks, who utilized the natural beauty of Onyx for making jewelry and extraordinary cravings. A special feature that certain Onyxes have is its ability to be backlit because of their translucency. This is a fairly inexpensive process that truly allows the stone to exhibit its pure beauty and makes it the focal point of any room. Onyx is best used in low trafficked areas, such as home bars. In a retail setting, we recommend it to be used merely as an artistic accessory. Quartzite is a fantastic option to mimic the appearance of marble, but with increased durability that is better suited for busier areas and even outdoors. Quartzite is a form of sandstone that is formed through heating and pressure under the Earth’s crust. The intense heat and pressure of metamorphism causes the quartz grains to compact and become tightly interwoven with each other, resulting in very hard and dense quartzite. It has a natural, glassy luster that creates a striking appearance. Pure quartzite is primarily white or grey in color, although, many other more exotic shades are available as well. Each slab has intricate veins with wavy swirling patterns. Quartzite is ideal for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, bath surrounds, fireplace surrounds, bar tops, wash stations, butler's pantries, and any other project that you are planning for. ------- Visit our website: https://marble.com Check out our new video site: https://marble.com/tv Subscribe to Marble.com TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/marbletvchannel Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marbledotcom Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Marbledotcom Follow us on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/marbledotcom Buy stone care products from MrStone.com: https://mrstone.com/index.php?main_page=index Subscribe to Granite Shorts: https://www.youtube.com/user/GraniteShorts Watch our Featured Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/marbledotcom/featured Watch our Featured Videos from MrStone.com: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrstonedotcom Marble.com would like to thank you for watching our video and please feel free to leave comments. --- Visit Marble.com for an even greater selection of stone countertops: http://bit.ly/N0RLRn
