FAQ

1.What is the average time frame from start to finish?

marbleVisions Care Sheet

How to care for your cultured marble onyx or granite products.

Do NOT use plumbers putty when installing drains in vanity tops, tubs and shower bases. Use ONLY silicone when installing drains.

REGULAR CLEANING: Always clean with a non-abrasive cleaner such as Mr. Clean or a foam or gel cleaner. Use a soft cloth or sponge to clean.
To remove a build-up of residue, use a product called SCUMBUSTER. Wiping your shower and tub walls with a squeegee or a towel after each use keeps them spotless and will make your weekly cleaning much easier.

SHOWER FLOORS with a pebble finish can be cleaned with non-abrasive cleaners and a soft-bristled (nylon) brush.

WHIRLPOOL TUBS water lines can be cleaned periodically with a water and vinegar solution by filling your tub and running your jets. The eyeball of the jets can be removed by simply turning them counter-clockwise and removing them. This will allow for extensive cleaning.

POLISHING every few months with GEL GLOSS helps maintain a lustrous finish and makes regular cleaning even easier.

MINOR SURFACE SCRATCHES can be removed using a soft cloth and a polishing compound like MIRROR GLAZE. Use the finest grit compound available.
If more serious chips or scratches occur, it MAY be repaired, sanded and buffed by a professional refinisher.

PREVENTING DAMAGE TO YOUR CULTURED PRODUCTS do not use strong chemicals such as bleach or ammonia to clean. Chemicals such as paint removers, drain cleaners, nail polish removers, hair colours can damage the surface. Of spills occur, flush the surface with soapy water immediately and clean as usual.
To prevent minor scratches do not permit heavy or pointed objects to strike the surface. Do not drag objects across the surface.

CAUTION Flat Irons / Curling Irons will burn the surface if left on vanity for an extended period.

HOT WATER avoid rapid temperature changes when using your tub or vanity top. Avoid excessive high temperatures when using your cultured products. Always use a MIXTURE of hot and cold water when using your tub or vanity top.

FOLLOWING these few guidelines will give you years of trouble free use form your cultured product.

Silicone Care Sheet

Silicone care for your marbleVisions products:

In order to prolong the life of the silicone seams, we recommend the following care techniques:

To eliminate staining and soap scum buildup after use, remove the excess water from the panels by towel drying or squeeging and patting dry the silicone seams.

When cleaning the silicone seams, a wet cloth is recommended using a non-abrasive cleaning product. Using a cloth that is too dry creates more friction which in turn can cause a breakdown of the silicone seal. It is normal for a little bit of flaking to occur. DO NOT scratch off…the flaking will fall off on its own.

Never clean your silicone seam with a toothbrush or any other type of scrub brush as this will cause a breakdown of the seam.

Steam Shower Information Sheet

This information has been developed to provide our customers with additional information on how cultured marble, granite or onyx is used for Steam Showers.

The installation process for steam showers is slightly different than our shower panel installation. Due to the extreme heat in a steam shower which causes expansion and contraction of the panels, we recommend panels be adhered to 1/2 inch plywood instead of drywall. The plywood walls also offer sufficient backing should you need to install grab bars at a later date.
