The natural stones created by the Earth each have different qualities, colors and textures that can add a unique and beautiful look to your home. You must make sure that each piece of stone flooring has continuity. Residents of Los Alamitos, Laguna Hills, Long Beach, & Costa Mesa, CA have been trusting The Finishing Touch
for all their stone flooring needs. Each type of stone comes in a different range of colors, with a different distinctive pattern determined by the way that the rock is formed. The formation of the rock also plays a major part in determining the hardness and density of the rock, which is the main indicator of how easy it will be to clean and what its' necessary level of maintenance will be.
Limestone is one of the softer stones. Formed relatively recently from compressed seashells and sediment, limestone hasn't been under heat and pressure for nearly as long as some of the other natural stones. This means that it's relatively susceptible to scratching and staining, and should be sealed to protect it from wear and spills. It's available in creamy colors ranging from very light to almost black, and has small holes or "pits" that can be filled in with sealant but will still show through.
