Caring for Your Marble Countertops: Tips for Longevity

While marble is a beautiful and elegant countertop solution for your home, it does require a bit more care and maintenance than the other options available on the market today. Since marble is a softer material, you will need to be more aware of how you treat it over time. While it is a natural stone and still very durable, it is more prone to scratching and chipping than alternative countertop materials. 

  • Remember that it's a softer countertop material, so be careful with sharp objects to avoid scratching.
  • Marble is porous, so remember to clean it often and seal it every 6-12 months. 

Pros and Cons of Marble Countertops:

Pros of Marble

  • Marble is a beautiful material to use for countertops and will add value to your home or space. 
  • Marble is a natural stone (eco friendly) and is also heat resistant. However, we recommend that you remain careful with extreme heat to ensure your marble remains in the best shape possible over time. 
  • Marble is very unique and has veining and patterns that make it stand out from other countertop options. 

Cons of Marble

  • Marble can be expensive depending on the the style and slab you are wanting. However, it certainly can add value to your home space. 
  • Marble countertops require more maintenance and care than alternative options. However, we believe this extra love and attention is worth every penny and minute spent. 
  • Marble is porous and will require proper cleaning and sealing over time to ensure it lasts a lifetime. 

Marble vs. Quartzite


  • While marble and quartzite are both beautiful natural stones and can be somewhat similar in styles, marble does offer some truly beautiful and elegant styles not found elsewhere. 
  • Marble is still considered one of the highest-end and valued countertop options and is truly a prize to have in any home or space. 
  • While marble may not be as "durable" as other options, it's much more durable than people realize, and sometimes this discussion point is exaggerated. Marble is strong and durable, but just needs a little bit extra attention at times.

Marble vs. Granite


  • Marble has a unique and luxurious/sophisticated look when compared to certain types of granite. 
  • Since marble and granite are both natural stones, they can handle high temperatures of heat well. However, we still recommend that you are careful with extreme temperatures no matter what kind of countertop material you choose. 
  • Marble is more rare in households today and is considered a high-end and high valued countertop material. 


  • In general, granite is more affordable than marble. 
  • Granite requires less care and maintenance over time. However, we still recommend you keep your granite in good shape so it lasts for life!
  • Granite tends to be less porous overall and helps reduce the risk of staining your countertop and harboring bacteria, yet we still recommend sealing your granite periodically.
