There is no such thing as a set standard that all dealers and builders adhere to when it comes to marble tiles. The grading system also varies. Most sellers often categorize their marble tiles as commercial grade or premium grade, the latter being more expensive and more durable (though some might argue that this is not always the case). To get the best value, you need to deal with a trusted seller in the first place. When purchasing marble tiles for your home, it is best to ask your supplier if the marble tiles they sell are of premium grade.

Learn About the Grade and Standards of Marble Tiles

There is no such thing as a set standard that all dealers and builders adhere to

when it comes to marble tiles. The grading system also varies. Most sellers often

categorize their marble tiles as commercial grade or premium grade, the latter

being more expensive and more durable (though some might argue that this is

not always the case). To get the best value, you need to deal with a trusted seller

in the first place. When purchasing marble tiles for your home, it is best to ask

your supplier if the marble tiles they sell are of premium grade.

You might be wondering—what exactly is the difference between the two? More

often than not, commercial grade marble tiles are cut thinner and extracted from

marble mines in countries around Asia where the labor costs are cheaper. Also,

these commercial grade tiles are cut out from widely-available marble, which also

explains why they cost less. These tiles are also often

mixed with other soft minerals, which is why it is more

prone to damage.

Meanwhile, premium grade marble tiles are more

expensive because they are thicker and tend to be

sturdier. They are also mined from quarries located in

countries all over Europe, such as Turkey and Italy.

Some dealers also sell ‘mid-grade’ tiles, which often come

in clear colors and beautiful patterns, but they do not

differ much from commercial grade tiles. They are inferior

to premium times in terms of quality and value, but they

are widely used for economical reasons.

Should you get commercial grade or premium? That really depends on your

budget and how you want to use the tiles. Even lower-grade marble tiles will still

last longer than many other flooring materials. If you will be using the tiles for

your countertops, go for tiles thicker than an inch so that it can deal with heavy

kitchen appliances.

Marble tiles have the potential to increase the value of your home not only

because it lends an opulent aura to any room or outdoor area but also because

with proper maintenance, they can last for many decades. Premium marble tiles

are certainly worth the investment if you love your home.
