LIMESTONE COUNTERTOPS IN COLUMBUS OHIO
Limestone is a soft sedimentary natural stone. The most common limestone in the market is Jerusalem Gold limestone. Roman gray limestone, champagne limestone are some of the other common limestones.
Limestone is commonly used for tile, flooring, pavers, and pool copings. It can also be used for countertops, but it is not recommended for countertops because it is a very soft and porous (absorbent) stone.
Limestone usually comes in a honed finish. Commonly, limestone will have fillers on the stone, or the small holes are left as is intended to keep the natural look.
Limestone was one of the main stones used to build the Egyptian pyramids (Great Pyramid of Giza) Lincoln memorial, and Parthenon was also built using limestone This shows us that even the most fragile natural stone is very durable considered its past use.
Caring limestone is fairly easy as it is just sealing it. Sealing limestone countertops is not any different than sealing granite countertops. We recommend that Limestone countertops are sealed more frequently than granite countertops.
Limestone countertops usually cost between $60 to $100 sq. Ft. based on the particular stone you choose and project details.
