Why is Turkish White Limestone Popular?

Turkish White Limestone

Although the vast range of limestone tiles and slabs are available from various sources throughout the world, Turkey is one of the few sources for white colour limestone for the construction sector. Some building projects require super white or off-white limestone cladding and architectural elements.

As well as its colour, uniformity of the stone, another word, consistency in selection is important especially at the large scale building projects and Turkish limestone quarries meet this requirement perfectly.

While one particular stone is specified for a project, architects and builders consider the quality of source to be sure that required stone can be supplied at an affordable price and at required quality standards and on time delivery. Thanks to huge investments in the natural stone sector over the past 25 years, Turkey became one of the major natural stone sources for the world construction market.

Turkish Limestone

Limestone deposits are available in many countries. Those limestones differ from each other in terms of aesthetical and physical properties. Turkish limestone quarries and main deposits are found in South-west part of Turkey and famous with its white colour. While architects and builders are making a decision about a type of stone to be used in one particular building projects they should take both physical properties and aesthetic features into account. Because of hardness and water absorption rates while some limestones are suitable for both flooring and wall cladding some other can be recommended mainly for limestone interior and exterior wall applications and again for some limited floors that subject to low foot traffic.
