Gioia venatino marble installation

by Laura
(Massachusetts)

Hello my installer just put up my polished gioia venatino marble and it looks very grey having absorbed the water from the thin set.


If he seals and grouts will this lock in the moisture?

Should he wait till it is white again to seal and then grout?

Also, I have black and white marble basket weave. When he did a sample piece for grout color, it made the tile look very dull.

How can that be prevented? Will sealing it first help?

I'm also concerned this will happen with the wall marble.





Hi Laura,

You have a lot of great questions, but I can't help you with these questions.

If you are asking these questions on behalf of your installer, you definitely need another person to do the installation.

The installer should be an expert at installing marble as well as regular tile and he will know what the best process is when installing.

If he can't answer any of the questions you just asked, then I would definitely not let him do the installation.

My only advice is to find a tile installer who knows what he is doing when it comes to marble installation.

I hope this helps.

Pedro
