Top Considerations when Buying Marble Tiles

One thing you must remember is that marble tiles do need regular maintenance. Once laid they should be sealed and then resealed at regular intervals of between 6-12 months, depending on the location of the tiles and how much they’re walked on.

Marble tiles are also easily stained, so you must always mop up anything you spill immediately. Our staff can give you further advice on laying and caring for marble tiles, especially as some cleaning products can damage the surface.
