Composite Marble

Marble is a type of metamorphic rock featuring re-crystallized carbonate minerals -mostly dolomite or calcite. Marble is usually not foliated. Nowadays, you can come across a number of alternatives to natural marble with respect to concerns regarding the impact on the environment. One such alternative is composite or engineered marble.

Composite marble or cultured marble is a human-made or artificial alternative to natural marble. It is a great alternative to enhance the overall beauty of your house or property on the décor front. People get drawn to marble countertops and flooring when they plan to renovate the existing space -whether it is an office or home. It is due to the inherent qualities of the marble material and its impressive appearance throughout. If you are in search of premium-quality composite marble countertops or surfaces, you can reach out to us at Johnson Marble & Quartz.

Even with a number of options out there, marble still serves to be a prior choice. The utilization of marble in the décor sense dates back centuries. Previously, marble was utilized for designing monuments, museums, temples, buildings, and so more. Engineered stone or composite marble features marble chips and dust. These are then bound with pigment and resin. Composite marble typically features remnant marble products or by-products that are combined together to form the durable material.

Composite Marble Vs. Natural Marble

Both composite as well as natural marble variants have similar qualities. Still, they are distinct from each other. It will take ample efforts to spot the differences between the two. With Johnson Marble & Quartz, are some factors that you can look into:

  • Price: Natural marble serves to be a high-end material for interior décor. The processes of mining, extraction, cutting, and polishing require expert overview and artisans. Therefore, the price of natural marble is higher. On the other hand, cultured stone is mostly made out of the remnants of natural marble in combination with other particles, pigments, or materials. However, there is no compromise made on the overall aesthetics of engineered stone. Moreover, you can expect reduced prices for them as well.
  • Selection: It is a challenging process to select natural marble. You can only observe the material that has been extracted. There is no assurance regarding coarseness or grains. In the case of composite stone, you can rest assured with the selection process. It is because the texture and tint remain the same throughout.
  • Maintenance: Natural stone tends to be porous. Therefore, it is possible for the stone to crack and chip easily when compared with cultured marble. Therefore, you can expect a higher degree of maintenance with natural stone. With artificial marble, there is no worry about the overall maintenance. It is mostly covered with a specialized gel that gets toughened to deliver a rigid outcome.
  • Installation: Composite marble is a rigid and durable material. The installation process is quick. It is because there is no requirement for additional care. Natural stone is somewhat brittle than the artificial variant. Therefore, it should be installed with in-depth care.

Advantages of Artificial Marble

  • A Number of Options: Artificial marble is prepared under controlled conditions. Therefore, you can find them available in a wide spectrum of colors, textures, patterns, and design options. Still, the specialized production process at Johnson Marble & Quartz ensures that the overall design and texture remain the same across a given surface.
  • Great Properties: As composite stone at Johnson Marble & Quartz is prepared out of pigments and resins blending with the marble particles, the end result is less porous and rigid. Moreover, artificial stone is scratch and stain-resistant.
  • Maintenance: Composite stones are designed with the help of resin binders. Therefore, the stone does not attract dust or dirt. The pigments used along with resin make the engineered stone rigid and durable. Therefore, minimal maintenance is required to take care of these variants. You can buy marble online at Johnson Marble & Quartz for optimum results.

Uses and Applications of Engineered Marble

There is no denying the fact that marble can be used anywhere and everywhere. Whether it is your bathroom or kitchen, countertops, and flooring, cultured marble is the ideal choice. Moreover, as it is created with the help of human hands, the artificial variant is available in a wide range of color options. Therefore, composite marble from Johnson Marble & Quartz is quite famous in hotel receptions and offices as well.
