Limestone Tile & Coping

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), it is usually in the form of calcite and less commonly aragonite. Limestone may contain considerable amounts of magnesium carbonate (dolomite) as well. Most limestones have a granular texture; in many cases, the grains are tiny fragments of fossil animal shells. Much knowledge of the earth’s history has been derived from the study of fossils embedded in limestone and other carbonate rocks. Limestone is used as a soil conditioner, in the manufacture of glass and in agriculture.

Suitability: Limestone ornamental varieties are used for flooring, exterior and interior facings of buildings and monuments. In recent years with the improvement of stone sealers and pregnator’s it is possible to use limestone in most environments.

Considerations: Limestone is relatively soft and porous, susceptible to staining if not sealed.  Sealing of stone highly recommended.
