Reconstituted Limestone Paving

Last Updated: Jan 19, 2011 by

Topic: Pavers

Reconstituted limestone paving is proving a popular alternative to natural limestone, which has a tendency to crumble and discolour over time. The reconstituted version is a manufactured product that essentially contains two elements – crushed limestone and cement.  This combination provides this paver with superior strength and the look and feel of the natural product. The reason traditional limestone discolours is that is a very porous rock, a weakness that the reconstituted version does not suffer from.

Advantages of Paving

Paving is a versatile solution for a range of settings on a property, and has a number of positive features, including:

  • Cost effective per square metre as compared to other options
  • Paving does not crack, as ground is liable to move in response to moisture or ambient temperature
  • Paving can easily be lifted for repair or replacement

Limestone Paving Facts

Arena Stone manufacture limestone paving products primarily for specification around swimming pools, but also for patios, walkways and outdoor living areas, as well as paving other areas with a range of large format pavers.  They provided the following insights into their range of limestone paving, including some paving facts and care tips:

  • Limestone paving is especially popular around swimming pools where they retain significantly less of the sun’s radiant heat than competing pavers
  • Waterproofing limestone paving is advisable if installed around swimming pool areas where salt water or chlorine can alter its colour fastness
  • Limestone paving has a unique pattern which makes it slip resistant and therefore suitable for wet zones like swimming pools
  • Sealing the paving from accidental spills is advisable, which may include fertilizer, pool chemicals and oil
  • Pigment is infused through the pavers to reduce the likelihood of fading due to ultra violet rays
