What is Marble?
Is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite.
Marble stone will give a luxurious and beautiful appearance to any residential & commercial property. Here at Marble Pros we do recognize that the installation of Marble stone can be expensive and it is why the preservation of such stone is very important, and it is as well why we always stress the restoration process on it to preserve the longevity of your precious stone. Each project is always different which is why it is very important to have licensed professionals do the job to assure high quality work. Over time marble will start losing its natural shine and will start looking faded/dull and that is when we suggest to have the stone fully restore and then re-touch at least every three to six months to preserve the shine and protection.
