Limestone has become one of the premium dimension stones available. It has been used throughout the UK on many prestigious buildings such as St Pauls Cathedral and Buckingham Palace.
GB Construction Supplies has access to a host of high quality limestone quarries and production facilities. These range from the different limestones of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, the Cotswolds and the Isle of Portland, to the beautiful limestones of Western Europe. The colours range from creams, whites and golds through to black and blue.
However, care must be taken when selecting certain limestones for particular applications on a building and use in geographical areas of the UK.
Particular limestones can be considered too soft, whereas others can suffer from frost damage if used in incorrect locations.
“GB Construction Supplies fully appreciate that real beauty is not skin deep – they know from the outset that sample boards are just a small part of our requirement for a rigorous and fully analysed cladding submission from them. They understand that we look to their continuous support throughout the length of all projects to safeguard both the concept and detailed specification.”
