Considerations With A Marble Deck

When it comes to a deck, marble really is the hallmark of quality, durability, and beauty which truly makes a statement. Marble deck designs are amazing in several ways including the fact they will literally last a lifetime and retain their natural beauty.

Decks made of marble are ideal for climates within the United States. They are resistant to cracking because of heat or cold and cycles of freezing and thawing as are common in most states. With various options in styles and colors of pavers, it is possible to match your decking with any d├ęcor or design to add to the style of your pool area.

The Quality

One of the top quality suppliers of all the materials needed to create your dream marble deck is Stone-Mart. They have one of the largest inventories of marble pavers, coping, and supplies available and on hand. They are also able to accommodate special orders.

Different marble blocks will have completely original patterns within the marble, which is one of the unique characteristics of this natural stone. There are some types of top quality marble sold which almost have a three dimensional quality. When looking directly into the marble there are crystal patterns evident which give depth and detail to the stone and add a look of Old World craftsmanship and quality.

The Finish

On a deck area or where water is naturally going to be a factor, choosing a brushed, chiseled or tumbled marble paver is the most recommended option. The brushed or tumbled surface is slightly rougher in texture and not as smooth or shiny as the polished surface, but the colors and the pattern are just as evident.

This provides a wonderful feel under the feet when walking on the deck and will maintain a beautiful, natural, stone surface to the area. It also helps to reduce the risk of slipping when water collects on the pavers around the pool area.

You will need to seal your marble deck routinely, usually just once a year, and clean any spills with warm water if necessary. Regular sweeping of the deck will also keep it looking wonderful for years to come. These amazing decks only require minimal and routine levels of maintenance which you would expect with any type of deck material.

For a look which is anything but ordinary in styles, colors, and patterns to match any pool lining and home, marble is an outstanding decking option and one we highly recommend.
