ask this old house- factory sealed marble?
Saw an episode of ASK THIS OLD HOUSE on the subject of kitchens - whole show. Might have been a rerun. A section of the show was on countertops where Richard Terfuey(sp?) said nothing new about granite, quartz and the new laminates but I was amazed when he mentioned marble as a kitchen counter-top candidate and explained that because of a new process of sealing marble slabs in the factory (some kind of heat process), there was no longer the concern about marble not holding up.
I just did a search on the web and couldn't find anything. Has anyone here heard of this "factory sealed" option for marble? The person whose home he was helping fix up was on a budget so it didn't sound like this option was over the top expensive. I am very intrigued. Anyone know about this?
