Frequently asked questions

What is Reconsitiuted Limestone?

Reconsitiuted Limestone is natural limestone taken from the ground, crushed and mixed with water & cement, before being compressed in our block making machine to create blocks in various sizes that have the beauty of Limestone with the strength of concrete.

Does Jaffa Limestone need to be sealed?

As Reconsitiuted Limestone is a manufactured product and does not turn black with age as natural limestone can. It does however, discolour as a result of other elements such as mineral deposits in bore water or mineral deposits/dirt transported by wind or other means. Sealing will reduce the likelihood of discolouration. We recommend using a penatration selaer over a surface sealer.
