Cutting Into Faux Marble

When many home owners look for an alternative to costly countertops, they often consider faux marble finishes. Faux marble is a painting technique that you can do with several layers of paint, and a glaze with a high-gloss varnish finish.

Due to damage, you may need to replace a countertop, wall, mantle, floor, or other surface (or some part of it) with a faux marble finish. This will mean cutting into the faux marble finish.

Mask off the Cutting Area
To act as a guide, but mostly to keep the paint from chipping, use tape to outline where you will cut. It is best to apply the tape to the actual cutting area and make your guide lines on the tape itself. This way, you won't mar the surface with the cutting tool.

Drill a Hole
Before hitting the wall with your saw, drill a pilot hole in the corner of your cut.

Use a Cordless Saw
The best in technology has finally given us smaller, cordless tools that we can use for smaller jobs. Cutting into walls, counters, or floors requires you to cut slowly and shallowly.

Once you make the cut, carefully lift the piece out and replace or repair it.
