Need help on carrara marble tiles in shower walls
June 24, 2013 in Other
Is it a normal to have cracks on the carrara mable tiles? We had it installed on the shower walls and the installer said it is normal. I can feel the cracks when I touched it.

I'm not sure if it is normal, but it would bug me. :(

I found a post by a marble person online. I googled your question and found this within a couple minutes, "It is also crucial to check marble tiles for cracks as they are set. Because marble tiles almost all look cracked, visual inspection might not be enough. Use your fingernail to drag the surface of the tile. If your nail catches on a crack, you've got a problem tile and it should not be used.
