How To Measure Marble Slab

If you are thinking of replacing your coffee or kitchen tabletop with stone – such as marble or granite – you can use this simple formula to calculate the rough cost of making such pieces. In the kitchen, the worktop is divided into rectangles, each of which has its own edge length, as seen above. After calculating the required number of edges we add the edge lengths that will be polished. 

The round parts are calculated in the same way, except for the waste material, and the square parts are calculated in a slightly different way. 

Marble floors come in tiles of various sizes, ranging in thicknesses from 1 / 4 inch to 1.5 inches and from 2 inches to 3 inches. Marble tiles can be larger than 2 feet by 2 feet, although larger tiles, which are very heavy, require special laying. Tile thicknesses range from 1 to 4 inches, while commercial marble slabs can be up to 2 inches thick. 

The marble slabs can be used in a variety of applications such as floors, tiled floors, and tile walls, as well as in furniture. 

Marble is one of the many natural stones that make up the slab, and like any other slab, it must be cut to meet a specific installation. The average do-it-yourself user can cut small marble slabs, while the large format cut should be left to a professional with commercial slab equipment. For example, the entire worktop project can be completed in a few hours with the help of a marble slab cutter. 

We employ highly trained technicians to manufacture precisely shaped and surveyed marble countertops in our Tacoma home and office. You can choose the right pattern for your needs from our extensive marble slab inventory. 

Our experienced installers will work with you professionally to ensure a perfect fit for your countertop in your designated space. Often it is necessary to adjust the size of the kitchen counter, but not necessarily the width of the marble top. 

This type of stone can be used to create two types of backlogs: tiles or slabs. The installation of massive stones may require a professional due to its size and weight. The safest option is always to hire a professional when working with heavy masonry or applying walls. 

There are different types of marble used in bathrooms, showers and office walls as well as in other areas such as kitchens.
