Texas limestone originally shaped at the lowest part of an ancient, shallow tropical sea. Calcium carbonate appears and builds up around grains of sand or pieces of coral or shells, cementing them together. After a while limestone is formed. Texas limestone is quarried in United States. The appealing soft tone of Texas limestone is valued for architectural stone panels. With StonePly panels the aluminum panel bolsters the limestone. In fact Stoneply panels have 60 times the impact strength of un-reinforced limestone panels.
Best suited for interior applications and for a number of protected exterior applications, Texas limestone offers a classically beautiful look. StonePly panels of Texas limestone are much easier to handle and attach than un-reinforced limestone. Texas limestone has a fine, somewhat grainy texture and a soft warm color.
