Limestone Flooring by Factor Surfaces
Limestone is another natural stone flooring surface that has been popular for centuries. It is formed from the calcified fragments of marine organisms like corals and shellfish. Limestone flooring has been used in construction since the early days of mankind, offering decorative beauty and style that can’t be matched by other surfaces. Typically, limestone is found in shades of white or cream. Rust-colored streaks or a faint pink tone are characteristic in some stones quarried from such far-flung places like Egypt. Quarries can be found in the United States, Canada, and portions of Europe. Just like many other stone surfaces like travertine or granite, limestone can be polished or left in a matte finish.
Limestone offers a range of benefits to the property owner when used as flooring. These benefits include:
- Long-lasting durability – once laid, limestone flooring can be enjoyed for many years to come. It is a hard stone, yet it offers a surprisingly soft feel on bare feet, making it popular as a flooring material for many centuries.
- Beauty – nothing adds drama like a fresh limestone floor. Its natural color and characteristics can be very dramatic or subtle, depending on the choices one makes. Because it is commonly found in seaside environments, it is possible to find small fossil inclusions such as shells and coral fragments in the stone surfaces.
- Cost – limestone tends to be significantly less expensive than more exotic stone flooring choices. Despite its lower cost, limestone provides beauty and style that few other surfaces can match.
- Minimal upkeep – with regular sweeping or mopping and periodic resealing, limestone floors should last for many years with minimal effort.
