LAYING MARBLE AND
Although marble and granite were prized
building materials long before any of us
were building, they fell out of favor in the
early '60s and remained out of favor for a
long time. But judging from my last few
years of invoices, stone is back in style.
What was only an occasional request ten
years ago now makes up nearly half of my
business as a tile contractor.
Since these materials were ignored for so
long, many contractors and suppliers aren't
as knowledgeable as they might be. This
can lead to problems because marble and
granite are individual products of nature;
they do not come off of an assembly line.
