Limestone Countertops St. Louis

Limestone CountertopsLimestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals calcite and aragonite. Most limestone is composed of fossilized marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. 10% of the total volume of all sedimentary rock is Limestone. There are many different types of limestone and each type varies, depending on where it comes from.  Limestone is known for it softer, earthier tones of grey and beige.   It tends to be more muted in appearance than granite and marble and the honed finish tends to be the most popular and widely available.

Countertops

Limestone countertops have increasingly become more popular. One of the biggest advantages to having limestone countertops in your home is because of the added value stone countertops provide. Limestone is a very durable stone to use in both the kitchen and the bathroom. Never place hot pots and pans directly on Limestone countertops.  Due to the geological nature of this stone, it can burn. Use trivets beneath hot pans and this will also help avoid scratching.

Bathrooms

If you like the look of natural stone in your bathroom, limestone is an excellent choice. Limestone is a wonderful choice if you want a more muted stone look as it will never have the same high gloss that marble and granite have.

How to Clean Limestone

Limestone can have a long, useful life. However, it is a comparatively soft natural stone. As such, it can be easily scratched, damaged by heat, and etched by acidic compounds. Improper care can negatively affect the stone, and damage may need to be professionally repaired. To clean Limestone, all you need is warm water and a mild soap. Here are some tips for proper maintenance of your new countertops:
  • Wipe up spills immediately to prevent staining.
  • Never use generic products, bathroom cleaners, glass cleaners, or anything abrasive or acidic to clean your Limestone countertops.
