Valders Stone Demo Fireplace

Hearths, mantels, arches or virtually any configuration can be manufactured from our limestone. Fireplaces can be designed to create a very formal or informal look. Our stone is commonly used to accent full and thin veneer stone, wood, brick or most any other building material you select for your unique fireplace design.

Stone Properties
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for Limestone: Type 3

MIA Classification for Soundness: A

This material is a high density dolomitic limestone. It has a low water absorption rate and a high abrasion resistance.

Recommended Uses
Is suitable for most residential and commercial stone applications.

The main limestone materials are Dovewhite, Dovewhite Blush, Platinum, Buff, and Gray. These can be finished in Diamond Sawn, Honed, Sandblast, Flamed (Thermal), Flamed and Brushed, Polished, and Bushhammered. These materials are suitable for most stone applications including exterior thin panels and high traffic floor tiles.

The secondary materials are River Bluff and Travertine. The finishes for these materials are the same as above, but cannot be bushhammered. These materials have natural fissures and are better suited for veneer, landscape, and small cut-stone applications
