Why Choose Limestone

There are many benefits to choosing limestone for your countertops, such as durability and beauty. Limestone needs no more care than granite, but there are many color and design options that you can't find with any other type of stone.

It's also resistant to heat, which makes it a great choice for people who are looking for a material that they can put hot pots and pans on without worrying that there will be a possibility of scorch marks later.

You'll also love the wide variety of surfaces that you can find at Francini Inc. For instance, Seagrass has a tan background with soft, muted green veining, and Jerusalem Gold has an off-white background with golden yellow veining.

Chateau Creme is a stone that has a clean yet warm appearance that comes from the smooth, whipped look of a buff background with slightly darker veining. And Rosal Clairo has the sophistication and elegance that off-white creates.

Granite is Heat-Resistant

There's a wide range of veining patterns. Some have a grainy texture, yet others have a smooth appearance. There are also patterns like honeycombs and fossil formations. Many also have calcite streaks, which add color and individuality.
