Facing with limestone
A simple, accessible and at the same time a mysterious stone – the LIMESTONE is known to man for many centuries in the form of pyramids, temples, palaces. Many famous architectural masterpieces (Wonders of the World) were built using limestone, among them the Pyramids of Egypt, the ancient temple of Ggantija in Malta, the Great Wall of China, St. Peter’s Cathedral in the Vatican, the Moscow Kremlin and white-stone churches. And this is not a complete list of the masterpieces of world architecture, captured in this stone for throughout the last 5000 years of human history. This is an useful, but also a beautiful and durable material.
In ancient times people often believed that the limestone stone possess healing properties. It indeed has high bactericidal properties, and is able to purify both air and water.

Our company sells article from limestone such as tiles for exterior and interior decoration, also various architectural elements. Over time, limestone does not lose its elitist aesthetic appearance, acquiring the charm of antiquity. It also possesses the highest ecological and biological compatibility with humans, showing pronounced natural antiseptic and antiallergenic properties. Limestone has, as a rule, a negative radioactive background, and in its parameters are comparable only with ones of a natural wood. The limestone made walls breathe out, letting steam and moisture escape, while maintaining excellent sound insulation. Absorbing the heat emitted by the sun, they prevent unwanted heating of the building, forming the most favorable habitat for a person.
High consumer qualities (noise isolation, hygienic characteristics, ecological compatibility, etc.). The limestone quenches sound oscillations well, perfectly preserves the building microclimate, which makes it an excellent material, both for construction and for finishing (external or internal). Houses built of limestone have the ability to smooth out the profile of the temperature fluctuations inside, maintain the optimum moisture regime, do not interfere with air exchange. Limestone is not suitable for the development of various microorganisms, therefore, mold is rarely formed on its surface, and a clean and healthy atmosphere remains in the rooms. Limestone practically does not cause allergies, does not contain harmful or radioactive inclusions, and these advantages of limestone make it almost the ideal building material.
Durability. As already mentioned, one of the advantages of limestone is its density and homogeneity. Due to this, it is strong and durable. Its frost resistance can span to several dozen cycles of freezing and thawing. Limestone is weakly susceptible to various microorganisms and unfavorable weather conditions. Indirectly, this is confirmed by the presence of ancient structures preserved to our time, built of limestone some 10-20 centuries ago.
