Limestone

Limestone is a beautiful stone that comes in varying degrees of hardness — some very soft and porous, others very hard. Limestone has a calcium carbonate base and, as such, is vulnerable to acidic substances. K&D Countertops can assist you with selecting the appropriate limestone for the environment in which it will be used. We have install limestone countertops and other surfaces with polished finishes or more popular honed finishes, to fit both your maintenance and aesthetic needs.
