• Like all the granite the white granite also is really heavy. Installing it is quite tedious and expensive.
• Each slab of white marble is different patterns and color. So, having a uniform countertop can be a task.
• The white granite is quite porous and it needs to be sealed properly. Sealing a white marble is slightly on the tougher side.
• Amount of iron contaminant can be found on some of the white marble and it can oxidize over time if placed near wet areas.
