Where does limestone come from
Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed in marine waters. Made of shell, sand, clay, and minerals that solidify into beds of rock, it is composed mainly of calcium carbonate.
At Outdoor & General, we source limestones from high-end quarries, including establishments in Egypt with a long history of supplying quality Egyptian limestone pavers. Limestone pavers’ smooth, even structure creates a crisp, attractive finish.

One of the biggest features of limestone pavers is its durability. Robust and hard-wearing, it can withstand the harsh elements, making it perfect for outdoor use. Not to mention, when properly maintained and sealed, it can last for years, making it a great investment.
Another considerable pro is its ability to stay cool. Even in direct sunlight, this stone will remain relatively cool underfoot. This makes it great for pool areas in warm climates but also comfortable and ideal for children.
Furthermore, this paver type is flexible. Cut into various shapes and sizes, it is versatile, being suitable for a range of designs and installations. This also makes it adaptable to fulfil your design vision and needs.
How to maintain limestone pavers
To maintain your limestone, regular cleaning is important. In terms of monthly cleaning, keep the quality of your pavers by regularly sweeping away debris and dirt. Occasionally, mop the pavers with a water and soap solution. Make sure to avoid acid solutions and general-purpose cleaners.
In order to encourage longevity, it is recommended you seal your pavers properly. Sealing the limestone will preserve the stone and keep maintenance to a minimum, even if installed outdoors. The sealed pavers will resist stains and retain moisture.
