Slate is sedimentary rocks with a very natural appearance, highly valued in construction for certain qualities that make them almost unique. Chose limestone walls and slabs to modernise your project.
They exist in different colours and with different degrees of porosity, two of their distinguishing features. They all tend to feature a great wealth of animal and vegetable fossils, as the water action of oceans, rivers and lakes shaped their appearance and composition over millions of years.
Sandstone can be considered a type of limestone that is rich in sand and is compacted by a cement with a calcium carbonate or iron oxide base. The varying composition of sandstones gives rise to the different hues that the material can exhibit once it has been adapted to different formats for use in buildings.
Limestone and sandstone are highly valued stones by architects for a wide variety of projects, from fully-cladded facades to external flooring. In general, their non-slip and heat-resistant properties are highly prized.
In recent years, different coatings have been introduced that boost the inherent qualities of limestone and sandstone, some based on nanotechnology research.
