Limestone: Clean and Bright
In flooring, countertops, patios and accent walls, limestone gives any space on your property a bright, clean look, whatever the color or finish. But preserving its distinct beauty requires routine maintenance. Without it, all stone in the limestone family can easily lose its luster.
Why Limestone Needs Maintenance
From ancient Greece to the present, from Europe to the U.S., builders have favored marble, travertine and other limestones for everything from sculptures to presidential monuments. It will stand the test of time in your home, but only when protected from common threats:
Acid. Many common liquids including juices, sodas, coffee and bleach easily dull the finish upon contact.
Etching. Heavy patio furniture, large grills and abrasive materials like scouring brushes can scratch the surface.
Fungi. Mold and mildew stain limestone as these fungi grow in the nooks, crannies and cracks that can develop.
With enough long-term damage, no amount of cleaning can bring back limestone’s natural beauty. The earlier you establish a professional maintenance routine, the more likely you are to prevent a costly replacement.

Limestone Repair Services
Epoxy Hole Repair
Holes occur naturally in many types of limestone. We use an epoxy filler made specifically for limestone repair to fill holes and strengthen the stone.
The elegance limestone tiles add to kitchen and bath spaces is lost as they shift due to normal wear over time. We turn back the clock by realigning, leveling out and sealing loose tiles.
Another common issue with limestone tile is its tendency to chip or crack with minimal impact. We use a special epoxy that can repair the damage and match your limestone’s original color.
