As most designers, architects and residential consumers have come to know, natural marble is a beautiful and desirable product, yet its inherent instability and color variation make it difficult to incorporate into any project. Engineered marble bridges the gap between nature and technology by maintaining the look and feel of marble while eliminating many issues typically found with natural stone.
Engineered marble offers the residential consumer an affordable alternative to natural stone, while maintaining a greater level of color consistency and strength. Engineered marble makes it easy to match countertop slab material with floor tiles and mosaics offering uniformity to the finished space while providing the level of beauty and aesthetics only found in natural stone.
Engineered marble is one of the most functional and practical building materials available in today’s market.
