Advantages and disadvantages of Marble 

Advantages

Marble floor tiles can help to make your interior look more luxurious which has the added benefit of increasing the value of your home. Marble flooring can also accommodate radiant floor heating. This allows the marble flooring to have a comfortable foot feel even during cold weather.

Disadvantages

Marble flooring needs to be sealed as it is a porous material. Improper sealing can lead to water damage. Marble is also very expensive as it is a difficult material to obtain and work with. If you have children or elderly in your home, marble flooring could cause them to slip and fall. Additionally, if you do not opt for radiant floor heating, it can create an uncomfortable foot feel during cold weather.

Maintenance

Marble tiles require regular maintenance. They can be swept and mopped like a regular floor. However, standing water must be cleaned immediately as it can seep through your floor and cause damage. Marble also needs to be polished often as it will lose its shine from foot traffic.

Costs of Granite Floor Tiles

Marble tiles are one of the most expensive types of flooring as they are a premium material. Installation costs are also quite high as grout is required and cutting the marble floor tiles to fit your layout can add up. Marble flooring also needs to be polished often to retain its shine. And in the event of a tile being damaged, it needs to be replaced entirely as it cannot be repaired. Therefore, when opting for marble flooring, you need to consider not only the material costs but also all the costs required to maintain it.
