As marble continues to grow in popularity, it is very important that you, as a purchaser, are especially careful in your selection. Marble is imported from areas as far away as India, Israel and Turkey, and it is important to make the correct decisions.
Your first step is to find a qualified supply source where you can expect support for problems that may surface when your marble is delivered. Step two is selecting the type and color of marble you desire. Never select color from one sample piece; the tile is cut from a single block of marble and there will be shade variances. Be sure to take veining into account, especially when considering the layout. The veining of one tile may be in a fairly straight direction, while another’s may be offset. As an installer, you should expect that the pattern installation be decided in advance.
