About MarbleLife

Chalking up service to big names like Aaron Spelling and Frank Sinatra, as well as premier properties like the J. Paul Getty Museum, Rockefeller Center and the Beverly Hills Hotel, Marblelife’s franchisees provide cleaning, protecting and restoring for natural and dimensional stone surfaces worldwide.

Marblelife was founded in 1988 by Ed Williams, a top Union Carbide Marble Care franchisee who bought that company. After several successful years in the Midwest, Williams moved franchise headquarters to Texas.

Today more than 45 franchisees in the United States and abroad, including Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Chile, Thailand, Portugal, Canada, Ireland and Aruba, provide services for the owners of upscale homes and commercial properties.
