A brief analysis of the six major causes of marble stone tile and marble stone countertops damage

1. Settling and tearing of the foundation portion causes cracking and damage of the surface marble stone tile.

2. External damage can cause damage to the natural marble tile.

3. Picking marble slab colors as a ground paving, there may be hidden dangers:

On the one hand, people often pay attention to the color when choosing the marble tile cost, but do not consider the difference in weather resistance and wear resistance between white grey marble and italian marble countertops.

On the other hand, most imported honed marble countertops are marble. At that time, the processing technology of granite was not advanced nowadays, and the color and style of marble tile colors were mostly elegant, which made the choice of marble interior use a fashion. This is one of the main reasons for the problem of stone on the stone floor.


4. A humid environment.

The main component of marble is calcium carbonate, which expands under the action of water, so the loose part of the stone structure will first burst, leaving a stone pit on the marble floor. The formed stone pit will continue to be crushed in a humid environment, causing a qualitative change in the surrounding stones.

5. Wrong protection method.

For some owners and builders, even if they have previously applied a protective agent to the marble, the problem will still arise when the marble is laid on the ground. On the one hand, the cracks and loose parts of the stone are not well repaired, and the back of the stone is quickly destroyed by the huge water pressure caused by the moisture.


On the other hand, although the front of the marble is also protected, the water on the ground will enter the interior of the stone along the cracks and loose parts of the stone, increasing the humidity of the stone, thus forming a vicious circle.

6. Wear and tear damage the luster of the marble surface.

marble stone countertops has low hardness and poor strength. As a result, buy marble countertop floors, especially those that behave more, will soon lose their luster. For example, walking in the hall, in front of the counter, etc.

Whether the effect of the stone after waterproof treatment can meet the expected requirements, the necessary inspection should be carried out before construction and installation. The method of inspection is as follows.

Sprinkle some water on the surface of the board. After a period of time, observe whether the water is in the shape of a bead or a scatter. If the water is in the shape of a bead, the waterproof effect is good, and vice versa.

Or when the water is poured onto the treated surface of the stone, the water droplets are ejected and do not immediately penetrate into the stone, indicating that the water repellent has worked.
