Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031

BLACK LIMESTONE FLAMED & TUMBLED G031Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031Why should you use Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 when paving your driveway?

Are you are looking for a classy look for your driveway? Gappsi’s offers a Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 paver that we recommend will create a WOW driveway that will stand out from your neighbors.  This paver is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate, they are a highly versatile natural stone that is best suited and stable for your driveway application.

Driveways are great places for showing off your personality.  When choosing your pavers ensure they can withstand the high pressure of the vehicle and any weather-related problems that may occur in your area.

The Perfect Driveway WOW Choice Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031

Black Limestone driveway pavers are a perfect choice because they have great beauty, more durability, and less corrosion. Their rough and rugged texture makes them non-slip and water-resistant as well. 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.  Black limestone paving is a very popular limestone that is dark charcoal greyish black in colour to achieve a contemporary looking patio with straight sawn edges to add the wow factor.

What does the Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 natural texture feel like?

In terms of texture, limestone will give you a smoother finish with fewer ridges.  It offers a more even finish perfect for driveways as well as many indoor projects too. If you are looking for a more contemporary finish then sandstone with a sawn finish would be best; keep in mind there are certain types with a grittier finish that can be more slip-resistant.

What is Limestone Made of?

The surface of Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 paving stone 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. The black limestone is extremely dense, hence making the products strong and durable. This natural limestone is very tough and slip-resistant plus has great tolerance in freezing and thawing conditions; which is 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 due to the calcite crystals being 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.

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, and reducing anaerobic conditions that are similar to the back swamp environment in classic settings.

Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 vs. other Limestones?

The mineral composition of limestone and black limestone is no different from each other. The black limestone in appearance is due to its high organic matter content which is the only difference.  Most of the black limestone contains fossils, which give it an attractive appearance perfectly suited for flooring, tiling, and paving.

When choosing the perfect limestone for your home or business don’t look for features in the limestones, just find the color you like and keep it simple.  Depending on your location in the world your environment and outdoor life will be different. If you live in a place where there is a road next to your house or there is a highway then black limestone paving may be better for you.

Are You Feeling The Heat?

Many of us are feeling the heat in our backyards right now, with heat waves making gardens very hot in parts of the world.  One of the most undesirable effects of hot weather is paving that is just too hot to even stand on, scrapping any patio ideas that involve walking barefoot. To help reduce the heat choose light-colored stone. As a general rule, no matter what paving materials you choose, go for a light color as it reflects rather than absorbs heat.

Choosing your pavers carefully will help you avoid getting your feet scorched after getting out of the pool. Among the best paving materials for reducing heat are limestone and sandstone.

The spa coping goes across the top of the spa wall and openings were left below to make spa water spill into the pool and gets filtered and sinetized.The spa can be used by itself and the temperature can go up to 104 degrees using the heater to just heat up the spa. The pool is also equipped with an automation system to control the spa and the pool, lights and also the heather. On the deep end we installed steps and a bench. The pool depth is 45inches to 66 inches. The equipment is al pentair. We used a variable speed pump and single drive pump for the spa.

Fiberglass Swimming Pool, Designer, Installer, Company, Lawrence NY 11559

Fiberglass Swimming Pool, Designer, Installer, Company, Lawrence NY 11559The installation of this Thursday Goliath 16×37 fiberglass swimming pool was executed with an excavator, after digging the hole, a 3/8 bluestone gravel base was used for the under layer for the pool shell to sit on. The pool was then lifted and dropped in place; numerous adjustments were made before we started filling the fiberglass pool with water and backfilling around the pool shell. Sonar tubes were placed around the all perimeter of the pool to be used as future supports for the concrete slab of the patio base. On this fiberglass swimming pool a safety auto cover was also installed, the Goliath 16×37 is 3.8” to 6’8”deep with which makes this fiberglass pool a non-diving pool but it makes it a fun pool to swim, play sports activities and sit on the extensive benches and step that are molded in the pool shell by the manufacture. This fiberglass swimming pool was installed by Gappsi in Lawrence NY 11559, located on the south shore of Nassau County long Island. Due to the high water table in this area the pool was elevated, and many yards of fill were brought in to raise the property Grade. Fiberglass swimming pools are very challenging to install, starting with the delivery and due to the size of this pool 16×37 it was very expensive to cross the bridges and trucking it on the highway. 2 police car escort were also needed beside the delivery truck.The patio pavers used are the melfi limestone Vincenza pattern along with 2 inches thick random coping for the pool edge. These stones are exclusive Gappsi patio stone.
