Oftentimes when we envision our home and the materials we would like to use, we might overlook a very common and sturdy building stone, limestone. Limestone can be transformed and shaped into beautiful pieces to enhance the inside and outside of your home.
As with any other surface and building materials, you will need to consider your lifestyle and the activity that will take place throughout your home. Limestone is softer than marble or granite, however, this particular stone is still durable and practical enough to use for the lesser-traveled areas of your home and it will hold up throughout the years if cared for properly.
- Spindle-type Railings
- Hearths and Mantles
- Driveways or Yard Caps
- Retaining Walls
- Accent pieces around windows, fireplaces, doorways, etc.
It is important that you care for the surface of your limestone in order to prevent stains and surface dirt from getting trapped. Certain cleaners can be too abrasive and wear the sealant off in as little as six months (depending on the walking traffic), so reapplying the sealant is also a good idea.
If you’re looking for a more natural look in or around your home, let us help you select the perfect pieces of limestone to suit your needs. We work with some of the best limestone distributors available so that we can supply you with top of the line materials.
