Why Use Limestone

Limestone has a large variety of natural colors including buff, gray and a full color blend of both.

Durability

Extremely durable, long lasting, maintenance free stone.  The color of the stone is maintained throughout the life of the product.

Material Composition

All natural oolitic stone is of average density and largely composed of aragonite and mineral calcite.

Design Capabilities

Limestone is easier to fabricate than other building stones, which gives architects the freedom to design without limitations.

Quarrying

Limestone is readily available and can be on site in a matter of weeks.
