Limestone is used in a wide range of projects both commercial and residential with the team at Burlington Aggregates supplying a vast array of stone to both types of customers throughout the region.
It’s probably unknown, but Limestone is a rock that has a variety of uses. Once processed and crushed, construction companies will use it in a wide range of construction and building projects up and down the United Kingdom.
However, it also is found in a wide range of other projects including road base, railroad ballast, concrete and cement when it’s fired in a kiln with crushed shale. In its pure form, it is white but can be produced in a wide range of colours and finishes including cream, black gold, brown, blue, pink, green and red.
Limestone has been around for a very long time. Some statues around the world have been manufactured solely from the material, and some of them are aged over 2000 years old. Limestone is a durable, dense material which has very little in the way of porous holes, meaning it can withstand volatile weather conditions including abrasion from the rain.
Limestone is a cost-effective material compared to other materials due to its abundance and is a reliable, hardwearing material, it also lasts for a more extended period of times, meaning it doesn’t need to be replaced for many years into the future.
As mentioned, limestone can be produced in a wide range of colours and finishes. Its overall aesthetics can add an overarching appeal to any construction or home DIY project.
