Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031Why should you use black limestone when paving your driveway?

Are you looking for a great and classy look for your driveway? Then black limestone paving is the best choice for you. Which is a kind of sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate. Limestone is found at the bottom of the ocean. They are a highly versatile natural stone that is most suitable and stability makes them your number one choice for your driveway application.

Is Black Limestone Suitable for Driveway Pavers?

Yes, of course. Black limestone driveway pavers are very suitable because they have more beauty, more durability, and less corrosion. From an external point of view, it would be great to see the outlook of your home. Limestone of black color is of very standard quality. Limestone has a lot of bearing capacity so it is less corrosive.

Limestone pavers are very porous in their texture. They are able to hold enormous amounts of water. Their rough and rugged texture makes them non-slip and water-resistant. The different lithotypes are quite similar: they are mudstone composed mainly of calcite and have the same fabric, characterized by the effect of the packing.

In terms of texture, limestone will give you a smoother finish with fewer ridges and it is this more even finish that makes it a great option for driveways as well as many indoor projects. On the other hand, sandstone with a sawn finish can look more contemporary and certain types with a grittier finish can be more slip-resistant.

The natural texture of black limestone

Limestone is made from piles of carcasses of marine animals that have been in the ocean for millions of years. It is found at the bottom of the ocean. Consists of several colors such as white, yellow and gray-blue, beige, and cream.

The surface of black limestone paving apart from the occasional riven is very flat and uniform. This combined with the consistent black color makes it suitable for contemporary gardens and landscapes. Black Limestone is extremely dense & hence making the products made out of it strong and durable. This natural limestone is very tough and resistant to slip and has great tolerance towards freezing and thawing conditions, which makes it ideal for commercial sites. Limestone is mainly composed of calcium carbonate. Which is a type of mineral called calcite. The reason most limestones are black is because calcite crystals are very clear and the origin of black limestone is in the marine sediments where sunlight is radiated. Due to the high concentration of organic matter everywhere, it retains a black color. Stone is not a good choice for outdoor construction. So the role of black limestone in beautifying your driveway is immense.

Black limestones are usually formed in a deposit environment with limited circulation and high organic matter such as a lagoon. This results in organic feeding / limiting the presence of decaying organisms / reducing anaerobic conditions, similar to the backswamp environment in classic settings.

Why black limestone is the best paving for your driveways?

Driveways are great places for showing off your personality. It’s a necessary part of any home. You need to make sure that it is able to withstand the high pressure of the vehicle! And to defend oneself against any weather-related problems
Only if you can be sure whether you are capable or not, it is possible to express your personality and good taste outwardly.

If you pave black limestone on the driveway of your home. Then the outlook will be beyond your imagination. It can hold enough weight. And having tiny holes can protect you from weather problems. It tends to be much longer-term.

What is the difference between black limestone and other limestones?

Minerally, there is no difference between limestone and black limestone. It is black in appearance due to its high organic matter content. Also the presence of black limestone like other limestones. The only difference is that the presence of high organic content is a bit higher.

Most of the black limestone has fossils which gives it an attractive appearance. So its slabs are mostly used for flooring / tiling and paving.

So you don’t have to look for features in the limestones, just find the color you like and pave the exterior of your home.

But yes. Where in the world are you! A lot depends on the environment, what your outdoors will be like. If you live in a place where there is a road next to your house or there is a highway then black limestone paving will be better for you if you do limestone paving. It is a must have, for any Affiliate, promoting any program. Now the rest of the decision is up to you. So what you have decided to do, be determined in your mind now.

Nicolock Paving Stones Installation

Nicolock Paving Stones InstallationThis residential project was designed and installed by Gappsi in Lindenhurst NY. From the driveway apron to the backyard patio, a combination of many colors and patterns were used to create inlays and designs. Granite City Stone Ridge Pavers were installed on the driveway apron, the concrete sidewalk was replaced, and the inlay with pewter colored plank paver and charcoal border outlines the driveway, walkway, and circle inlay. Granite City Mini Colonial wall was installed on the front stoop with bluestone copings. A combination of Granite City and Westchester blend was used to pave the driveway up to the backyard entrance.

The backyard incorporates two levels of patio, both paved with Travertina Alpine Ridge pavers. A raised patio and firepit were built with the Travertina Mini Colonial wall and the fire pit was built with the Verona wall system. The outdoor kitchen on the raised patio was also built with a Mini Colonial wall and the columns are capped with 3 inch manufactured precast caps. A Gappsi bocce court was also installed next to the patio with a step down into the court from the patio level. It was built with pressure treated lumber and Gappsi bocce grass for the floor.

Cleaning and Sealing Paving Stones on Long Island NY

Cleaning and Sealing Paving Stones on Long Island NYWe have started our 2020 cleaning and sealing season rejuvenating the Gappsi showroom parking lot in Smithtown NY located in Suffolk County on Long Island. We are using hot water on low pressure and surface cleaner to remove dirt and residue of oil and other debris collected in the crevices of the pavers surface. We are also using a rotary wand to loosen the dirt collected in between the joints of the pavers. This is a large parking lot built with Nicolock pavers, and the colors of the paving stones are still very nice even after 15 years of being exposed to the elements and vehicular traffic. Nicolock manufactures high-quality concrete products that withstand the test of time. But as any other concrete products, concrete is corrosive and it weathers when exposed to the elements like the Sun’s heat, the rain and snow, and also to the calcium chloride and ice melters used during freezing times. After completing the cleaning of the entire paver parking lot, we filled the pavers joints with haze-free polymeric sand and vibrated it with a mechanical plate compactors to allow the sand to settle in and completely fill the joints. We spray water on the pavers to allow the sand to get wet, letting the water saturate the sand all the way through the bottom of the joint, and also wash off the pavers surface.

The polymeric sand comes in a few different colors, but most commonly used is beige or gray. It really doesn’t matter what color you use because over time it weathers and it will eventually turn into a brownish-gray color. The polymeric sand is a combination of medium-crushed natural sand, that is combined with color and a polymer component. It is activated when in contact with water to make it glue and eventually harden. This makes better for the pavers’ stability, makes it harder for ants to dig and nest in between the paver joints, and also makes it harder for weeds to grow through.

The next process is the installation of the sealer. We use high-quality urethane-water based sealers, which are environmentally safe and won’t harm plants, pets, or humans. It penetrates the surface of the pavers and creates a coating to protect the pavers from the elements. It also brings out and deepens the colors. Our sealer won’t yellow, and it will create a consistent  tone on the pavers during wet and or dry circumstances. We allow the sealer to cure for at least 3 days before driving on it, and depending on the temperature, it could be long for the sealer to totally cure.

We provide Pressure washing and re-sanding & sealing services in the following areas of Eastern Long-Island, Western Long-Island, North-Shore Long-Island, South-Shore Long-Island, Suffolk County, and Nassau County: Glen Cove, Hempstead, North Hempstead, Oyster Bay, Babylon, Huntington, Islip, Smithtown, Brookhaven, Southampton, Riverhead, East Hampton, Southold, Old Brookville, Old Westbury, Mill Neck, Nissequogue, Lloyd Harbor, Muttontown, Cold Spring Harbor, and East Norwich.
