Limestone Worktops, Limestone Flooring
Limestone is one of the most common stones present in the Earth’s crust and is becoming increasingly popular for use as kitchen worktops and bathroom tiles, or flooring.
At Surrey Marble and Granite we always have a wide selection of limestones in stock.
What is limestone?
Limestone is a sedimentary rock, made up of the minerals calcite and aragonite, formed from the remains of shells and corals. For this reason you can often see fossils in limestone. This means that limestone comes in a wide range of different colours and every piece is unique.
Why choose limestone?
Limestone is a very beautiful stone which can be used throughout the house. All our worktops are sealed which makes them very low maintenance and what’s more, you won’t have to reseal them later either. Limestone is non porous when sealed correctly so you don’t need to worry about bacteria getting in and it is very easy to keep clean and polished. Simply wipe down with a damp cloth and it will continue to look great for years.From the quarry to your home, each limestone slab is honed to the design you would like to have. Limestone makes excellent countertops and it also makes for great decorative slabs, it is also an excellent floor for inside and outside the home.
