Subject: This is tough, as there are many grades of Marley. The toughest marley is about $15 a lineal 60" by a foot new cut, but it depends....see more inside

First, look at what they are selling. If its shiny, the edges are puckered or wavy, its dead marley. Over time it gets buffed down, faster with shoes not intended.

Ballet marley is the thinest, and will last a long time when its only leather or satin sliding over it. But throw in fiberglass tips, and it will shorten the life exponentially.

Speed -the shinier the faster speed, and less grip, should be matte, if feeling it, slide you hand over, should have a little grip. Dead marley feels like a clean linoleum floor, fast and slick.

Quick math, assuming it the toughest stuff for hardshoes/tap/drill....etc....I use the new car approach, as in assume a good chunk of loss when it driven off the lot.....
$20 at 5' lineal (cut price not full roll of 100 lineal feet) is about $4.00 per square foot NEW....ball park near half that value if it looks good, still has a near matte finish, not puckered/wavy at edges, surface does feel like it has pebble depressions....
