Strength and Durability

Liquid limestone’s beauty does not fade quickly. It can last several years, which is why it is ideal even for alfresco and high traffic areas. The surface is a type of concrete, a highly regarded material when it comes to durability. But interestingly, liquid limestone is even stronger than concrete itself.

Perhaps what makes it unique is that it is not laid individually, unlike other pavers. Pouring liquid limestone takes extra care because it is done in one block as uniformly as possible. With this method, you can count on the surface to prevent the growth of weeds and tree roots. It also fights off the formation of ant colonies, which are a common problem in places with a Mediterranean climate, such as Perth.

Is It Easy To Maintain?

Sealing is required for liquid limestone, but it is usually done one week after pouring. You do not have to re-seal the surface until you see some issues. Often, sealants can last one year to more than three years.

When properly sealed, you should have no problems maintaining the surface. You can use a pressure washer at least twice a year for cleaning and removing stains. Mould and algae can form, especially in driveways and pool surrounds. Pressure washing with a sprinkle of pool chlorine can get rid of them easily.

Retaining Texture with the Virtues of Concrete

Liquid limestone has the original look and texture of real limestone. At the same time, it offers the benefits of poured concrete. It has its own qualities, which can be challenging to work with unless you have the skill and experience. It requires the right mixture of high-strength concrete with correct additives and slump – poured properly at the best time.

Liquid limestone should be installed with the suitable contours and at the right depth. As concreting contractors, CoastCrete is the expert you need that understands what liquid limestone is about. Speak with us today and get an instant quote from CoastCrete, WA’s fully qualified concreter.

Liquid Limestone Concrete FAQs

What Is Liquid Limestone?

Liquid limestone is a flooring material made using a mixture of crushed limestone, cement, and adhesives. For the best mixture, the materials are measured electronically to get the exact amounts.

The measurements of the materials depend on where you want to use the liquid limestone and the finish you want it to have.

Where Can I Use Liquid Limestone?

Liquid limestone has become one of the most common types of flooring for both commercial and residential uses. You can use it outdoors to construct poolsides, pathways, driveways, and patios and also indoors as paving.

If you have a concrete floor already install, you can pour liquid limestone on it do long as it is in good condition and has no cracks on it. Over concrete, you only need a thin layer of liquid limestone, about 40-50 mm.

Will It Crack or Stain?

One of the main reasons why people prefer liquid limestone over concrete is its ability to resist cracking. While it is one of the most crack-resistant materials, it depends on the quality used and the skills of the people who install it.

To keep liquid limestone from staining, you should get it sealed. You can use either a water-based sealant or an acrylic-based one. However, for best results, you should use the acrylic-based one. The sealant also helps the liquid limestone maintain its finish for longer.

How Long Does It Take to Install Liquid Limestone?

The time of pouring the liquid limestone depends on the size of the targeted area and its complexity. It also depends on the type of finishing and pattern you want on the liquid limestone.
After installation, it is best to avoid traffic on the surface for about 24 hours to allow it to heal. You can walk on it the following day.

What Patterns Can I Get?

There are different patterns (around 17) that you can choose from, like slate, random, and cobblestone. There are also different ways of putting in those different patterns, for example, framing them with feature borders or having them in different angles.

Apart from the patterns we have in store, you can also have the unique pattern you would like us to carve on the surface.

Can I Colour the Liquid Limestone?

Yes, you can have your liquid limestone in whatever colour you want. Constructors could add any tint to the limestone, cement, and adhesive mixture before pouring it on the ground. However, you should understand that the colour compromises the thermal properties of the limestone.

How Much Does It Cost to Install?

The cost of installing liquid limestone depends on the size of the surface you want it on, the design and finish you want for the liquid limestone, and the location of your property. Before they begin the job, the constructors will give you a cost estimate for the whole project.
