Top Shop Materials - Limestone

Limestone, one of nature’s oldest and most versatile building materials, is a favorite for a variety of applications including Commercial & Residential Interior & Exterior, Floor & Wall, Backsplashes, Countertops, Fireplaces, Tub Surrounds & Showers, and Vanities.

Limestone is an organic sedimentary rock, and is composed primarily of calcium carbonate in the form of the mineral calcite.

Each piece of limestone has its own specific characteristics adding a natural texture to commercial projects. Because of limestone’s beauty and durability, commercial contractors, designers and architects often use limestone as exterior accents around windows and entrances. When polished to a high shine, limestone is spectacular on office walls, entrance area floors and corridors. It’s prized for its neutral creamy and soft earth tone colors which allow it to mix well with other stones and finishes. Darker colored Limestone, is denser and more durable, and are sometimes sold as marble.

Limestone is inherently porous and, being calcium based, will react with acids. Wine, fruit juice, lemons, and vinegar will all react with limestone counters and can etch the surface.

Cleaning a limestone countertop requires non-acidic cleaners. Another key characteristic of limestone is its softness. Unlike granite it can be scratched with many objects including knives. It performs extremely well as cladding for “non-work” areas, and moderately well as a bathroom countertop, but is not recommended as a kitchen countertop material, or any other surface used for the preparation or serving of food or spirits of any kind.
