Most people that we talk to have a lot of misunderstandings about the durability and the suitability of marble as an outdoor construction material. As soon as we point out that some of the oldest buildings in existence, including those in Italy and throughout Europe, have marble flooring and marble construction, people quickly realize this is certainly a durable and essentially timeless option.
To help to explain the value of marble in outdoor use, let’s take a look at the reality of using a beautiful natural marble paver for an outdoor living space, a walkway or driveway, or for the deck around a pool.
Marble is Durable
Marble has been used in construction around the world for thousands of years. It can still be found in use in some of the most famous venues, and it still looks as vibrant, classic and beautiful as it did the day it was installed.
As a natural stone, a marble paver will withstand all Mother Nature has to offer, including freezing and thawing cycles, torrential rains, hail and even extreme heat and dry conditions.
Marble Adds Style
When many of our customers think of marble, they think of the amazingly smooth and flawless polished floors in custom homes, offices and even in hotels and government buildings around the world.
Not all marble is polished, and with a natural tumbled marble paver you can achieve the elegance of marble with a more satin surface. This is perfect for outdoor areas and will stand up to years of use and still retain its natural beauty. In fact, the exposure to the weather with this natural stone only makes it more lovely and inviting.
As a natural stone marble is not susceptive to mold development on the surface, and the color of each individual paver will never fade or change, even in the hottest and most direct sunlight.
Marble is a Value Added Material
When you choose a marble paver for your outdoor custom design or renovation, you are adding value to your property. Not only is this a beautiful addition to your backyard, walkways or driveway today, but you will never need to worry about replacing it in the future.
If you haven’t considered the use of marble for your next outdoor construction or renovation project, you don’t know what you are missing. Once you see the benefits of this natural stone, you will understand why it is still a sign of classic design and outstanding taste.
