Where does limestone come from ?
An ancient material that endures over time
For centuries, limestone has been used in construction for its natural beauty and exceptional durability. This material, formed by the sedimentation of shells and other marine organisms, has a timeless charm that adds a touch of elegance to any space. It also offers a variety of colours, patterns and textures to create unique, personalized designs.
The advantages of limestone staircases :
Limestone staircases are particularly suitable for outdoor use, offering a number of advantages :
1-Limestone staircases are weather and frost resistant
Limestone is a robust material that can withstand the harshest weather conditions. Whether it’s rain, snow or extreme temperatures, limestone staircases remain solid and stable, with no risk of deterioration.
2-Limestone staircases are slip-resistant and offer optimum safety
Limestone has a naturally non-slip surface, making it a safe choice for outdoor staircases. Its slightly rough texture provides optimum grip, reducing the risk of falls.
3-Limestone staircases are resistant to chemicals and wear and tear
Thanks to its mineral composition, limestone is resistant to the chemicals commonly used outdoors, such as cleaning products and detergents. What’s more, its surface is durable and wear-resistant, guaranteeing exceptional longevity.
4-Limestone staircases are easy to maintain
Maintaining limestone staircases is simple and requires little effort. Regular cleaning with a damp mop and broom is all it takes to preserve the appearance and quality of the limestone. By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to enjoy your limestone staircase for many years to come.
