A marble floor in your home is most likely made up of marble tiles. Marble floor tiles are made of a natural stone and are generally very resistant to damage such as dents and holes.

When this happens, you need to use specific methods and supplies to repair and fill the hole.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Purchase some marble dust, available through marble dealers.

  2. 2

    Add a small amount of polyester resin cement to the marble dust until you get the consistency of paste.

  3. 3

    Pour the resulting paste into the hole in your marble floor. Use a liberal amount.

  4. 4

    Remove excess paste with a finishing tool to create a smooth surface. Let it dry all night.

  5. 5

    Use sandpaper to smooth out the finish of the patched hole. Start with a coarse sandpaper and gradually decrease until you get down to a very fine sandpaper. This will leave a smoother finish.
