Many people have already considered buying and installing marble countertops Hawaii. From its classic look to sophisticated functionality, it is all worth the investment. And in case you did not know, it has been used as one of the go-to building materials for centuries.

 
What Marble Countertops Hawaii Brings to the Table?

 

Marble countertops is both stunning and luxurious. More importantly, it brings a certain sense of sophistication to any space or kitchen it is installed. However, it is important to know that marble still has some sort of disadvantages over other types of natural stone. Nevertheless, its features are enough to make it all worth it.

For instance, it is susceptible to staining due to the fact that it is porous. And since it is soft stone, so to speak, it is usually prone to cracking and/or chipping. Add to this the fact that it has a tendency to chip and develop a natural patina as time goes by. Hence it is important that you know a thing or two when buying one.

 
How to Maintain Marble Countertops in Hawaii?

Kitchen countertops made of marble have requires specific maintenance to protect it from staining, cracking, and chipping, among others. Remember, too, that a regular protective sealant does not entirely do the trick. It will not necessarily prevent the countertop from developing patina and thus leads to absorption of stains.

Below are two options of sealants that you can use:



Topical Sealant – required to cover the stone, though it slightly changes the look of the design. Still, it is effective enough to prevent etching.
Penetrating Sealant – this one here directly seeps into the stone, preventing any chance of staining. The only catch is that it does not protect the stone from acidic materials and, most of all, it needs to be reapplied at least once in a year.



 
Tips When Buying Marble Countertops Hawaii

When buying kitchen marble countertops, the first thing you need to consider is the size. Most slabs range between 0.75 to 1.25-inches thick, but normally you would want to go with the thickest. In addition, since marble is a natural product, do not expect for it to look exactly the same as the one you see in the showroom.

Moreover, marble slabs are not really priced by the slab. Why? That is because there is a number of variables being considered. This includes, but not limited to, sizing, cutting, and installation.
