Beyond Stone Solutions offers precision installation of new limestone tile projects, and professional limestone floor and surface restoration and maintenance services for residential properties throughout Arizona.
Limestones are made up of calcite from shells, coral and other debris. They are what we call sedimentary rocks—that is, they have been formed by the breakdown of other rocks, shells, etc.
Limestone quarries can be found all over the world: France, Egypt, The United Kingdom, China, Germany and the United States to name a few. The largest limestone quarry in the world is in Rogers City, Michigan.
Limestone has been used for thousands of years as a building material for some of the world’s most beautiful and important structures. The Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramids of Egypt, the Arc de Triomphe in France, The Colosseum in Rome and The Pentagon are all built with limestone and they have all withstood the tests of time and the elements.
Limestone is versatile, beautiful, and restorable if necessary. It adds beauty and durability to all sorts of projects, ranging from commercial to residential. And, since limestone can be renewed and restored, it is a great investment that will remain beautiful for years to come.
Installing limestone requires precision skills and an understanding of limestone. Fortunately the expert installation team at Beyond Stone Solutions is well-equipped to get the job done.

Limestone repair, polishing, protection, and maintenance
Do you have chipped limestone tiles? Are there cracks in your floor or countertops? What about broken limestone tiles? Before you replace your limestone, consider having Beyond Stone Solutions provide expert limestone repair services. Beyond Stone Solutions can fill holes in limestone, fix limestone cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, then honing or polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your limestone floor, countertop or other limestone surfaces.
Limestone cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Limestone is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. However, once wear sets in, creating hollows and low points where dirt can collect, your limestone can become more difficult to keep clean. Beyond Stone Solutions can assist you in not only cleaning your limestone surfaces, but in keeping your limestone properly polished, maintained, and free of scratches to help make regular cleaning and care of your stone easier.
Beyond Stone Solutions can remove stains on your limestone, as well as limestone discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself (refer to our Stain Management App) or want Beyond Stone Solutions to treat your limestone, most stains can be successfully removed and the finish restored to new again.
Although it is rare for a limestone tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Beyond Stone Solutions craftsman can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, install the new tile, level the newly installed tile with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible. Unless you have an extra tile from the original lot to install, replacement tiles will likely be noticeably different. Even if you purchase the same tile by name from the same quarry, the quarry line has shifted and with that so has the color. Have no fear, our professional technicians have the knowledge, experience, and skills to get your limestone looking sharp again.
Is your limestone floor too dull or too shiny? Call Beyond Stone Solutions and specify the look you want. If your new floor has some tiles that look more glossy than others, Beyond Stone Solutions can even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, Beyond Stone Solutions can deliver a beautifully restored limestone finish.
Are wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots dulling the once gorgeous surface of your limestone? Beyond Stone Solutions can hone your limestone surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new limestone surface free of damage. With our limestone honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the earthy appearance of your limestone floors. Beyond Stone Solutions can polish your limestone using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our limestone polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Are your tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? Beyond Stone Solutions can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once flattened, the limestone is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Limestone needs a little extra protection to inhibit stains and etching. We can treat your limestone with premium quality solutions…
Some natural stone types are more porous than others and the more porous the natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your limestone will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly effective cleaning solutions. Once your limestone is cleaned and restored, Beyond Stone Solutions will recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventive measure against stain damage because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
For limestone counters and tops, we offer state-of-the-art protection treatments.
We offer options to protect your limestone tops from etching. Limestone is acid sensitive….When your limestone tops are protected from stains and etching, you don’t have to worry about choosing limestone for your kitchens, bar tops, vanity tops or where acid etching is a concern. (Learn more.)

The short answer is yes, limestone does require maintenance. Regular cleaning with a stone safe cleaner is a great for simple day-to-day maintenance, but over time, depending on traffic and usage, your limestone floors may start to become dull, become scratched or show obvious traffic patterns. Countertops can become scratched, dull and etched.
If these problems develop, you become more and more dissatisfied with the appearance of the limestone until it’s time for another round of professional restoration. Ask about our regularly scheduled maintenance program which keeps your limestone surfaces looking great all the time, without the need for periodic restoration.
