Advantages of Marble Floor Installation

Marble flooring is both an attractive and practical option! Along with providing your home with an aesthetic appeal, there are many other benefits of installing marble floors.

Durability – Although costly to install, marble floors will last much longer than the less expensive option. In fact, marble floors last two to five times longer than other flooring options—making them a great investment in any DC or Northern Virginia home!

Variety – Marble floors offer different patterns, styles, and colors for you to choose from! With such a variety, it’s impossible to not find marble flooring that matches the décor of your home.

Cleanliness – Water damage—don’t even think about it! Unlike hardwood floors, marble flooring is resistant to moisture, making cleaning up spills and messes an easy task.

Disadvantages of Installing Marble Floors

Every flooring option has its drawbacks, and while marble flooring has a few, the flooring experts at Elegant Floor Service feel that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.

Upfront investment – Marble flooring is one of the more expensive flooring options on the market. However, it is also one of the most durable! While the initial costs might be more expensive than flooring options like hardwood, you will pay less for repairs and replacement in the future.

Stains – If something acidic, like sauces or fruit juice, come into contact with your marble flooring, there will likely be a noticeable stain left behind. Because of this, installing marble floors in an area like a kitchen can be dangerous if you’re prone to spilling things.

Scratches – Polished marble is not scratch resistant, meaning that over time your furniture, pets, and overall wear and tear can become visible. However, you can repair scratched marble by calling a professional!
