Limestone Countertops

Limestone is made from calcium carbonate and can be found in homes across the nation, used for flooring, wall decoration, kitchen countertops, and bathroom countertops.

Typically, limestone can be found in colorations of off-white and white, which brings a pure, clean, and crisp quality to a remodeled room, but it can be found in variations of beige, ivory, brown, gray, red, and yellow as well.

Care and Keeping of Limestone

Limestone is a porous stone that is softer and more sensitive than both marble and granite. Because of this, it can be etched by acids of acidic solutions, which means that you should pay close attention to its care. Because it’s so porous, limestone does require sealing (and resealing) in order to keep it from staining.

When you’re cleaning your limestone, make sure to avoid acidic cleaners that could harm it. You should avoid placing acidic substances of any kind on its surface as well.

Durability

You should also avoid placing hot items on limestone countertops – because while limestone is heat resistant, you should still exercise caution if you want to keep your stone looking great for as long as possible.

When chopping food, always use a cutting board. The softness of limestone makes it vulnerable to scratches.

Like many other natural stones, it is possible for limestone to chip, especially around the corners. If this does happen, though, it is possible to repair the spot by sanding out the chip.

Location

Limestone can be used both inside and outside, as long as you remember to seal it – because, remember, it is a porous material. The reason it performs well in both areas is because it is heat resistant and attractive, and it can add a sense of sophistication to the interior and exterior of your home.

Your Limestone Countertop

Not only does limestone have a classic, timeless look, it is also more affordable than many other stone countertops. If it’s maintained properly, your limestone countertop can last up to 100 years – so you are surely making a worthy investment.
