Vermont Marble Choosing a countertop for the kitchen can be a daunting task. There are many stones to choose from including granite, quartz, travertine, limestone and more! With so many choices, how can you decide on just one? For many years, marble has been the preferred stone for those who want a luxurious gourmet kitchen with an elegant touch. Construction Resources’ Vermont Quarries offers beautiful marble stone that is sure to add such elegance to any kitchen.

Marble is a rock that is made from limestone that has been subjected to pressure for a long period of time. This pressure is what turns the limestone into marble. Like all marble, the Vermont Marble is a durable material that will last a long time. Another interesting quality about marble is the absorption rate. Some marbles have a low absorption rate, lower than many types of granite, which is an important aspect when considering a countertop for your kitchen. Read More→
