Rudi's Choice - Granite, Marble And Onyx Slabs From All Over The World
Granite and marble are beautiful options for kitchen and bathroom surfacing, as well as splashbacks, showers and even flooring or stairs. The timelessness of natural materials will ensure that your home or office interior will maintain its appeal for years to come. All stone, even granite, is porous to some degree, which leaves it vulnerable to stains. For this reason it is important to use a penetrating sealer to prevent stains from oil, wine, or other liquids from soaking into the surface. Visit the Rudi’s Choice website for more instructions on care and maintenance.
Both marble and granite are types of stone quarried from the earth. However, granite and marble are made up of different materials and therefore have different qualities. Granite is formed deep in the earth’s mantle at extremely high temperatures, and is a very hard, resistant stone made of crystallized minerals. The marble family – limestone, travertine, marble and onyx – starts out as sediment made up of animal skeletons and shells, plant matter and silt found under water. Eventually this matter is compressed and solidifies into stone. Calcium, which forms their base, is sensitive to acids such as vinegar and citrus beverages.
Slabs are usually only available to purchase as a whole and are not bought piecemeal. Although you can select your preferred slab at our warehouse, your fabricator is the one who buys the raw material and then sells you a completed installation. The fabricator’s price includes the cost of transport, visiting the site to take measurements, cutting the slab with professional machinery and then polishing it. Your fabricator is also responsible for delivering the pieces to your job site and fitting them into place. How much material is needed is determined by the layout and the amount of waste. An excellent fabricator will lay out your job in a way that will minimize the amount of waste material while maximizing the natural beauty of veining and pattern.
