What is Limestone?

Limestone is a carbonate sedimentary rock that is primarily made up of calcium carbonate such as calcite or aragonite. Limestone can be sourced in Australia and there are many untapped high-quality deposits in many areas. As mentioned, Limestone is a sedimentary rock, this also means that fossils are often encapsulated in them- as such, history!

  • What causes limestone degradation?

    Although durable, limestone is still a porous material. Exposure to the atmosphere and weather causes erosion. Rain also affects the mortar and can causes fretting, leading to deterioration and discolouration.

  • Why is limestone used in construction?

    Not only a natural material Limestone is also highly versatile. Limestone can be used for building, rendering/cladding, paving/tiling, and coping. In Western Australia, locally quarried limestone, typically yellow limestone, have been used since the late 19th century (1800s).

    One of the most durable natural building materials, Limestone is weather-resistant, which means that it wears the weather without impacting structural integrity. Versatile and durable, many of the late 19th century and early 20th century structures still exist today. Think about the quintessential and no doubt, iconic, Fremantle area.

    Signs that your limestone may need restoration include visible cracks, chips, discoloration, surface erosion, biological growth, and loose or spalling stones. If you notice any of these signs, it is advisable to have a professional assessment.

  • How can I maintain my limestone surfaces after restoration?
