We have a sortof unique situation. We purchased an 80% finished house!
The dining room floor is concrete slab which was painted white, or very
light cream. We are now very accustomed to the nearly white color so we
are concidering Marbe tile as a floor, but have some questions,,
1. Do we need to remove the paint from the slab? It is very well
adhered but would come off with a razor scraper and alot of sweat.
2.. Does marble have grout lines? The floors we've liked seem to not
have any gap at all
3. How does it wear? can you slide a chair across it without scratches?
Does tracked in pebbles or sand scrath it? Does it scuff with black
shoe marks? Etc
4. It apparently needs re-polishing from time to time, how often in a
5. Lastly is there any residential floor other than marble which would
give a nearly white floor, without grout lines? Epoxy perhaps?
Any help very much appreciated
