An important question, is limestone frost-proof?
If you plan your terrace design, you always ask yourself the question: Will my desired floor slabs and facing bricks withstand extreme weather conditions and will they get through cold winters with frost and snow? Similar to sandstone, limestone is not as hard in structure as other natural stones, for example, granite or basalt, but can still be laid outdoors without hesitation. All-natural stone slabs are tested for their frost resistance at Beta Stone Experts, including the limestone slabs. Due to clay deposits, bluestone Azur has some natural weakness zones and is classified as “conditionally frost-proof”. However, if everything is done professionally during the installation, there is only a negligible residual risk that there will be isolated breaks.
Correctly maintain limestone outdoor
It doesn’t take much effort to maintain a limestone terrace beautifully and well-kept. An impregnation during or after the installation forms basic protection and allows contaminants to simply roll-off. Otherwise, simply sweep off the dirt and clear water, with which the plates are sprayed off, is sufficient in most cases. If there is stubborn dirt from falling glasses with coloring liquids or splashes from the food to be grilled, this is also not a problem. Wipe care tailored to natural stone helps quickly and effectively to make everything shine again in its old glory. You should not use high-pressure cleaners, as this procedure could damage the stone structure of bluestone. Read more about the care of limestone – patio slabs and limestone tiles here!
