Limestone pavers are natural stone pavers that are found in the mountains or produced from the ocean sea bed. After they are quarried, the stones are cut to paver thickness and sold in tile stores throughout the world. Because of their durability, these pavers are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Kitchen and bathroom floors are the most common places for people to lay this type of paver. Because limestone pavers are porous, they can accommodate a lot of water, making them slip-resistant. This is a great feature to have in areas where water is likely to spill onto the floor. When used indoors, limestone pavers must be sealed to prevent damage caused by acidic products. When acid makes contact with limestone, it will remove the limestone’s polish and strip the natural texture.
When used outdoors, this type of paver works great for areas around the pool. Once again, their ability to hold a large amount of water makes for a non-slip surface. Limestone pavers also tend to stay cool underfoot, preventing feet from burning when entering and exiting the pool. Due to the chlorine additive found in pools, the pavers will need to be sealed so they aren’t stripped of their natural finish.
