When it comes to marble in Oakland Park, FL …

The most common finishes are polished, honed, and leather (antique). Finish affects the look and performance of custom marble tops.

Honed (or Matte) Created by sanding the marble so that is has a satiny-smooth, almost soft feel, a honed surface doesn’t show as many scratches and flaws as a polished finish, and it also mutes the color of the stone. However, honing the surface opens the pores of the marble, making it more susceptible to staining.

Polished Finish A grinding and buffing process results in a high-gloss slick surface, favored for bringing out the details of the marble’s color, veining, and character. Polished marble may be the least porous of the finishes, but it’s the most susceptible to getting etched by household acids and cleaners.

Leather Finish This option is created by adding a leather-like texture to a honed surface. It has a soft sheen, but is not reflective like a polished finish, and is most commonly used with dark marbles.

Because of its porous nature and vulnerability to acids, sealing marble used for custom marble tops is a must.

Topical Sealant A surface coating that covers the stone, it can slightly alter the look of the marble but provides some protection against acid etching.

Penetrating Sealant This sealer seeps into the pores of the marble and is the option most stone suppliers recommend for kitchen counters. Penetrating sealants help limit stains by keeping liquids from soaking into the surface.

Even penetrating sealants will degrade over time and should be reapplied periodically. Some suggest once a year or more if needed.
