- The lustre and translucency make marble unique. It can be polished to a high-gloss, mirror-like finish for indoors. While outdoors, it comes in attractive anti-slip finishes that harmonise the outdoor environment.
- Marble does not absorb heat energy like other building stones, making it ideally suited for Australia’s climate. Even during the heat of the day, you can walk comfortably on marble pavers.
- Marble has low absorption of water, making it ideal for wet environments. Low water absorption capacity is correlated with better stain resistance because liquids do not easily permeate the stone.
- Marble is more resistant to abrasion than sandstone, suitable for high-traffic areas. In controlled studies, marble’s resistance to abrasion suggests it keeps its surface finish when properly cared for.
- Marble has both flexural strength and compressive strength. Adequate flexural strength prevents breakage or failure when in service.
Marble is a metamorphic stone, formed from limestone that has been subjected to extreme pressure and high temperatures deep in the earth. The primary mineral in limestone, calcium carbonate, recrystallises into large, interlocking crystals of calcite during this process, which creates the texture and patterns that give marble its luxurious appearance. When the limestone is pure and free from inclusions, marble will be white. However, if the limestone has veins, clay, iron oxide or other minerals, marble can be off-white, grey, tan, pink, blue, green, black or show varied colouration. In addition, marble may have veins of gold, brown, tan, pink, or other colours. Because it is formed naturally, the texture, colour and patterns of the stone vary from quarry to quarry and within a quarry. Because of this, no two pavers are the same. When installed, the result is a charming addition to your outdoor environment.
The use of marble pavers for outdoor projects is limited only by your imagination. Whether you are doing a project on your own or hiring a professional, innovative installations of marble pavers will define your style and add elegance to your landscape. The colour of the stone, veining, size, and surface finish all contribute to the look.
Each type of stone has unique characteristics and properties that make it suitable for a particular use. Marble pavers work well as stepping stones, entryways, walkways, patios flooring and pool surrounds. They come in several sizes and forms, including large-scale rectangular, bullnose and drop-edge pavers. They add elegance as stair treads, risers and pool coping stones.
Although marble is beautiful and has several positive attributes, there are a few things to keep in mind when selecting marble as an outdoor paver. Because its primary chemical makeup is calcite, marble reacts easily to acids. Sealants and regular cleaning can protect the surface and beauty of the stone. Dark colours and variegated patterns hide staining and work well for applications where staining may occur. However, you should discuss the environmental conditions of your property and the intended use with one of our knowledgeable staff members before finalising your choice.
The experienced staff at Outdoor and General can help you select marble pavers for your project. The type of finish, colour, size, and thickness affect the durability and look of pavers. Our pavers are cut to a generous thickness that makes them suitable for walkways, pool decks and other outdoor high-traffic areas. We offer sealants, cleaning agents and other products that are safe for marble. When properly cared for, marble can last for generations
