What is Marble?
Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock, generally composed of calcium or magnesium carbonate. It’s formed by heat and pressure into stone with a non-layered or banded appearance.
Why Choose Marble Countertops?
For natural beauty and elegance, Marble countertops are unsurpassed and remain a top choice for homeowners and designers. An engineered stone cannot mimic the visual appeal of Marble. Since marble forms naturally, each piece boasts different hues, colors, and veining. Your marble countertops will be unique to you. Marble is naturally cool and resistant to heat, which makes it a baker’s best friend and ideal around fireplaces. Its surface can be polished to a gloss or honed to look matte. Marble does react to acids, so care needs to be taken with foods such as lemon juice or vinegar.
Marble Countertops Care
Daily Marble care requires warm water, mild dish soap, and a microfiber towel to shine your stone. Avoid abrasive, acidic cleaners or bleach that can strip the sealer and etch the stone.
Sealing Marble Countertops
Marble countertops receive a 15-year sealer that protects against untimely spills and splashes. It’s best to promptly wipe up spills since continued exposure to acidic spills can cause etching or discoloration.
What is Dolomite stone?
Dolomite is a lesser-known type of sedimentary limestone found in dolomite beds resembling Marble or quartzite. Sometimes called Dolostone, most rocks rich in Dolomite were originally deposited as calcium carbonate muds that were then altered by magnesium-rich pore water to form Dolomite.
Why Choose Dolomite Countertops?
Installing a Dolomite countertop is an ideal way to create an understated yet elegant interior that will be remarkable for years. Typically found in hues of white and grey, it offers excellent resistance to pressure, scratches, heat, and other types of wear and tear, making them ideal for kitchen, dining, and bathroom spaces. It is less liquid absorbent and sensitive to acidic foods like wine, citrus juices, vinegar, and salad dressings than Marble, but it must still be sealed.
Dolomite Countertop Care
Like other natural stones, Dolomite can be cleaned with mild soap and water or special stone cleaners for daily maintenance. Acidic liquids like citrus fruits, vinegar, and tomatoes can etch the Dolomite if left directly on the countertop for too long.
