Limestone flooring materials are beautiful, functional, and long-lasting. Since the tiles are cut from naturally occurring limestone, they have the most interesting and beautiful variations in design and color that make limestone tile among the most attractive.
Natural limestone is a product of nature. Formed from sand, mud, and shells of ocean life long ago dropping to the bottoms of oceans and lakes. Over time, the organic detritus hardens to form rock, usually with the striations and fossil imprints of the original shells.

Easy-to-Maintain: Once sealed, limestone tiles resist dirt, grime, and bacteria development. This characteristic makes limestone tile perfect for kitchens and serving areas. The material only requires an occasional mopping depending upon what may have been dropped or spilled.
Wide Selection: Like marble or granite, a natural product, not all limestone flooring tile is the same. Depending on the origin, you will have a broad choice of the available patterns and colors to match your décor. PetraSlate carries a substantial selection of limestone to meet customer preferences.
It’s Extraordinarily Functional: One of the greatest attributes of limestone is its “softer” appearance.

Each color carries a unique appearance and a slightly different texture appearance, ensuring that there is an option for everyone’s tastes.
