MARBLE LAYING COST:
Marble Laying charges rates cost varies from Rs 35 to Rs 60 per sq ft for a residential house. This cost varies depending on if it’s Indian Marble or Italian Marble, as different marbles come with different thicknesses ranging between 12 mm Tiles to 19mm for bigger Marble slabs.
The marble laying charges also depend on the slab dimensions. Therefore, one can get both Marble Tiles and Marble Slabs which can be readily available in the market depending on the client’s requirements suggested by their Hired Architects for designing your House.
Generally, Marble laying cost/charges are more for bigger dimension Marble slabs as it requires more manpower and needs more precise work.
The laying cost of Marble flooring can increase further if there need to be some Marble inlay works that need to be done on the Marble flooring. These inlay works are added to the marble laying rates/cost depending on the complexity of the inlay work.

PROCESS OF MARBLE LAYING:
This Step of minor chipping is done before Marble laying to ensure the flooring remains even. If any imperfections or irregularities on the concrete floor, these are chipped off to maintain an even flooring lvl.
The Next Step for Marble laying involves cleaning the flooring area to ensure no loose debris. This will make sure that there is no debris between the concrete floor and the cement motor.
CUTTING AND MATCHING:
Most Indian marbles and Italian Marbles, a natural material, have a natural grain running through the slab depending on the kind of Marble selected. Based on this, one needs to make sure that the Marble, once laid, has to match based on the veins or a Book match.
If none of this is possible, one can just lay as per the tile pattern.
CEMENT MOTOR RATIO:
The cement motor ratio for Marble floor laying is 1:6, where 1 part Cement and 6 parts of River sand or M Sand need to be mixed well with sufficient water to fix the Marble. Also, one needs a thin layer of White cement motor on top of this to get a better whiteness on the Marble flooring.
This step is mostly followed in fixing Italian Marbles as they are more pours when compared to Indian Marble.
PROCESS OF MARBLE POLISHING:
The Marble polishing cost varies from Rs 40 to upwards of Rs 120+/sq ft for Italian Marble. This cost can even go up further if one plans to do chemical treatment for the polished marble surface.
This Grinding of Marble flooring removes high points on the Marble surface to remove Roughness, Surface stains, Ledges, and surface scratches.
Grit used: 30 to 50 Low diamond grit used for a better finish.
Honing of Marble is done even with the roughness on the Marble flooring surface and removes further deep stains and scratches. One can start with 100 grit followed by 200 grit and 400 grit to achieve the expected result.
Grit used: 100 , 200, 400.
The next step finely grinds the marble flooring with diamond pads from 800 to 1500 grit. The grinding by using these grits brings shine to the rough marble surface.
Grit used: 800 to 1500.
The final stage of Marble flooring is achieved by Buffing the polished marble surface using chemical powers to increase the gloss and shine of the marble surface.
This chemical surface treatment protects the Marble flooring surface to prevent penetration of the Water, Stains, and cleaning chemicals.
