I love the look but have shied away from useing them in the past. How do you find they wear? Are there maintinance or staining issues that you know of?

I can't speak to the maintenance issues related with this material since this home has been recently sold. In a more wet application; ie kitchens, baths, I could see why you would be hesitant to use this material. We urge our clients to understand the proper maintenance needs for natural stone tops. Marble & granite is always a struggle to keep looking as good as the day it was installed. The routine application of sealers on any natural material always goes a long way and is strongly recommended. The good ole battle of practicality vs aesthetic =).
