Fall in love with your limestone again

Limestone is beautiful, but loses its smooth, granular elegance when it becomes scratched, chipped, or stained. Some causes of limestone deterioration include exposure to improper cleaning agents or acids, improper application of coatings, and accidental damage. Stone Surface Specialist’s qualified professionals know how to erase damage and revive the like-new appearance of your limestone. To discuss your limestone needs, call (801) 856-0164 today.

About Limestone

Limestone is a durable sedimentary stone that ranges in hardness from soft and very porous to hard. Typically neutral in color, limestone has a unique, natural appearance. It is comprised of shells, mollusks, and marine animals calcified over millions of years.

Caring for Limestone

Sweep or dust mop your floors regularly to remove anything that can get ground into the surface. Use only recommended cleaning products. Some acids, such as lemon or vinegar, and alkaline cleaners may etch the surface of limestone, especially matte surfaces. Chipped limestone repair is not a maintenance procedure and requires the knowledge and expertise of a skilled mason. Stone Surface Specialists professionals are equipped to service your limestone installations. We restore, clean, seal, repair or polish your limestone floors, walls, countertops or vanities. We also recommend the appropriate care products to keep your stone looking its best. We make it a point to educate our customers on proper stone care.
