Marble & Dolomite Countertops

Marble is incredibly beautiful and polishes much like granite, but the two are actually very different types of natural stone. Granite is a siliceous stone, which is composed of very dense materials like silica and quartz, while marble is a calcareous stone composed of softer calcium carbonate. Because of its extravagant color and veining, marble is breathtaking in appearance and creates a feeling of elegance and luxury whether it’s used in the kitchen or bathroom

At Benson Stone in Rockford, IL, one of the main types of marble we carry is dolomite, which is formed in a similar way but has a higher magnesium content. Homeowners love dolomite because it has a softer, more flowing look. It is more likely to etch and scratch over time than other types of stone countertops, but some people love having etched countertops because it is evidence of a life lived.

Our salespeople know just about everything there is to know about this natural stone, and our professional installers will make it look just right in your home. 

Marble and dolomite countertop maintenance

Marble and dolomite countertops require very gentle, pH-neutral cleansers, such as soap and water. Whenever this type of stone is exposed to something acidic like a lemon, it will etch and scratch.

What to expect

You’ll start by walking into the Benson Stone showroom and looking around. If you’re planning to do a major kitchen or bathroom remodel, we will connect you with our kitchen and bath designers. If you just want new countertops, our salespeople will be able to help you decide which type of product you want (it’s helpful if you have a drawing of your space). They will also take you to the building next door to our showroom to show you the marble and dolomite slabs so you can get a better idea of color. Once you decide what you want, we’ll give you a quote, and if you want to move forward, we’ll send our expert installer to your home to measure the space. Then, we’ll work on fabricating your custom countertops and schedule a time for our installers to bring your dream to life.

Below are a few samples of marble and dolomite slabs we have available at Benson Stone in Rockford, IL.

Customer Reviews★★★★★

These guys did a great job with a very quick turnaround time on our countertops. Install quality was top notch, nothing over budget. Very accurate estimates. Much larger selection than the big box stores and great communication throughout the process. Highly impressed and would recommend.Cody J.

From the beginning consultation to the follow-through, everything was done professionally and in a friendly manner. The installation workmen were professional, hard-working, and a pleasure to deal with. The end result is beautiful. Your company is certainly a great example of workmanship of which the entire Rockford community can be proud.Susan G.

What a pleasant experience from beginning to end. You were patient and very easy to work with. The guys from the shop were very professional and polite and the installers were very friendly and did an awesome job. We visited your competitors along with the big box stores. Benson Stone was hands down the best bang for our buck. Brad H.

Our experience with Benson Stone could not have gone smoother! The creative, professional, and attentive staff of River, Eric, Matt, Juan, and Brad ordered, measured, and installed our new countertop, island top, and sink so effortlessly! Wish we could use more than 5 stars!Ellen

My wife and I moved to a home in February and we had to remodel two full bathrooms. We are so happy because of the fine service and quality countertops we received from Benson!Joe M.

I am in love with the breakfast bar I had installed by Benson Stone. I was able to find the perfect remnant in their slab warehouse, I gave my ideas to the team on what I wanted and then was offered suggestions for improvements. It turned out better than expected! I highly recommend Benson Stone!Scott E.
