You want the rich appearance of natural stone for your bathroom or fireplace, but you also want a uniform, durable, non-porous surface that won’t leak or stain? You want cultured marble.
It’s actually one of several cast polymer products, along with cultured onyx and granite. They’re all made with a liquid polymer resin and filler material (usually crushed marble, or other natural stone).
Colorants and other particles are then added to reproduce the veining or speckling found in natural marble and granite. A clear protective gel coat is applied during manufacturing, giving cultured marble its durable, non-porous finish.
The result is a tough, uniform product with the look and feel of natural stone.
Because each piece is custom made, it can be fit precisely in any space. The variety of pigments and techniques allows for an infinite variation in appearance. Seams are kept to a minimum, which essentially makes a cultured marble job leak-proof when it’s properly installed.
By choosing cultured marble, you avoid the inconvenience of tile grout, and the troublesome porosity of natural stone. It’s a low-maintenance surface that resists mildew and stains, and cleans up fast and easy.
That’s why you’ll find cultured marble in more and more state-of-the-art homes and buildings. Beauty and durability at a price.
