What is Limestone?
Texas limestone is a sedimentary rock that is comprised of tiny fragments of coral, mollusks, and other marine organisms, and its major components are calcite, aragonite, and calcium carbonate. Limestone has a very uniform texture, and unlike a lot of other types of stone, limestone has very few pores which can allow moisture to penetrate. Like sandstone, Texas limestone has the ability to withstand repetitive freeze and thaw from extreme weather patterns.
Benefits and Uses of Texas Limestone
Limestone has been used as a building material for many thousands of years and was only replaced by manmade alternatives. In recent times, Texas limestone has made a comeback thanks to people’s desire for more aesthetic appearances that fabricated stone products are not able to offer. It has become recognized worldwide as a premier dimension stone due to its uniformity of texture and grade.
