Sheffield Limestone is an excellent choice for interior and exterior applications. Because of its excellent properties and performance, and warm color, architects repeatedly specify this natural limestone for interior stone flooring, exterior paving stone, stone treads and risers, fireplace surrounds and stone wall cladding. Sheffield Limestone is available in honed, smooth sanded, bush hammered and sandblasted finishes. It is also available in vein-cut form for certain applications.
