Building Your Wall with Limestone… What are your Advantages?

20 May 2015

A lot of the magnificent structures we have today are made of limestone like the Great Pyramid of Giza, in Egypt. In New York, the Barclay Tower lightweight limestone panels were used decoratively. As in the past, limestone is well-known today in Australia and around world for its versatility, durability and competitive pricing.

Variety of limestone

Limestone used for walls can have different finishes ranging from black, white, cream, brown, gold, red and pink, and limestone panels are easy to cut and install, which make this an ideal building material for walls and decorative panels. Moreover, because limestone is a quarried stone, it can be cut to meet a specific size and shape, if required.

Unlike other stones, limestone has very few pore spaces because of its density which gives it the ability to withstand extreme weather changes like freeze-thaw and abrasions. Compared to solid stone choices, limestone is definitely the cheaper alternative; however, it can be used in ways heavier stones cannot. Since it is easier to install than other quarry stones, installation costs are considerably lower.
