Marble floors – Cultured marble is made of a mixture of marble dust and resin that mimics the look of real marble. When manufactured as tiles, cultured marble flooring is much less expensive than a real marble floor would be, but the tiles may crack or chip over time. When this occurs, replacement is necessary to recreate the look of the original soil. Placement of replacing cultivated marble is much the same as for that of any other tiles, but the old tile can be difficult to remove once in place underground. However, with the correct procedure, removal is possible, allowing you to place the new surface immediately after completion.
Protect your hands from the eyes and lungs from tile chips and dust using a pair of safety glasses, particle mask and a pair of work gloves during replacement.
