A Homeowner’s Guide To Liquid Limestone

As the leading supplier of decorative concrete in Perth, Limecrete specialises in delivering liquid limestone solutions to homeowners. An extremely versatile material, liquid limestone has become increasingly popular due to its unique aesthetic appeal and practical benefits.

What Is Liquid Limestone?

Liquid limestone is a type of decorative concrete, made from a unique mixture of crushed limestone and cement. This combination creates a highly versatile material known for its aesthetic appeal and range of practical benefits. Unlike plain grey concrete, liquid limestone provides a natural and elegant finish, enhancing the beauty of any outdoor space.

A primary difference between liquid limestone and traditional decorative concrete lies in the finish of the product. Traditional decorative concrete utilises aggregates, which can be finished as either a smooth or exposed surface. Liquid limestone, however, utilises crushed limestone, giving the surface a texture and a refined look. Unlike decorative concrete, liquid limestone doesn’t have a strength rating, allowing it to be cut with a hand tool. These qualities make it a popular choice for homeowners who’d like to add a touch of style to their pool surround, patio or driveway.

Additionally, liquid limestone is renowned for its ability to remain cool underfoot even throughout hot days, reinforcing its suitability to Perth’s warm climate. Due to the reflective nature of limestone, heat is dissipated, providing a comfortable surface to walk on barefoot. With a blend of practicality and aesthetic appeal, liquid limestone is the perfect choice for homeowners across Perth.

Benefits of Liquid Limestone

As a highly versatile finish, liquid limestone is suited for a range of applications and affords benefits to homeowners across Perth who choose to install it.

Aesthetic Appeal

Providing a natural and elegant look, liquid limestone can significantly enhance any outdoor living area. With a range of earthy tones to seamlessly blend into the natural surroundings of your yard, liquid limestone assists in creating an atmosphere of harmony. Homeowners have a range of freedoms to tailor their liquid limestone installation to suit their home and style to perfection.

Whether used for a patio, pool surround or driveway, liquid limestone’s aesthetic appeal offers a timeless and sophisticated look, elevating any property’s appearance.


Liquid limestone is highly regarded for its exceptional durability and hard wearing properties. It maintains a seamless appearance over time, making it an attractive option for Perth homeowners. The hard wearing nature of liquid limestone also means it is able to withstand the harshness of the Australian climate.

The robust nature of liquid limestone aids in its resistance of wear and tear, maintaining its structural integrity over many years. The resilience and durability of liquid limestone places it as a reliable option for outdoor decorative concrete.

Applications of Liquid Limestone In Your Home

The versatility of liquid limestone makes it a suitable option for various functional and aesthetically pleasing applications around your home.

Patios & Alfrescos

Give your outdoor living area a facelift with the timeless beauty of liquid limestone. Not only enhancing the appeal of your space, but liquid limestone also provides a cool, comfortable surface to be enjoyed by you, your family and your guests all year round! The natural and elegant finish complements a range of design styles, with the possibilities of customisation allowing you to create a perfect match for your home.

Pool Surrounds

An excellent choice for pool surrounds, liquid limestone offers both safety and visual appeal. As a non-slip surface, it ensures a safe environment for those using the pool, mitigating the risk of slips and falls. Additionally, as the surface stays cool underfoot throughout the summer, your pool area will remain comfortable even on scorching days.

The natural elegance of liquid limestone complements all designs of swimming pools and pool areas, creating an inviting outdoor environment.

Driveways & Paths

Looking to enhance the curb appeal of your home? A liquid limestone driveway or path is a terrific way to achieve this. Liquid limestone offers a seamless finish which can withstand long term pedestrian or vehicle traffic, as well as harsh weather.

Additionally, the non-slip properties of liquid limestone make it an ideal choice for driveways and walkways. With minimal maintenance required, homeowners looking for a practical and stylish solution should look no further.

Why Choose Liquid Limestone Over Other Materials?

Choosing liquid limestone over alternatives for your home, offers a range of benefits. Firstly, liquid limestone is cooler underfoot, making it more comfortable to walk on throughout Perth’s scorching summers.

When compared to pavers, liquid limestone provides a seamless finish that prevents the growth of weeds, reducing overall maintenance. Over time, pavers can move, creating uneven surfaces and trip hazards. Unlike tiles and pavers, liquid limestone is relatively slip resistant when wet which helps to enhance safety around swimming pools and walkways.

Overall, liquid limestone combines beauty, low maintenance and durability, making it an excellent choice for Perth homeowners looking to improve their outdoor areas with a sustainable, stylish decorative concrete option.

Customising Your Liquid Limestone

Customisation of your liquid limestone installation allows you to create a personalised outdoor space, tailored to your style and home. With a variety of colour options available, the possibilities are endless for homeowners.

Colour Options: By adding a coloured pigment to the mix, a wide range of liquid limestone colour options can be created. This allows homeowners to choose a shade to match their home and personal style. From soft creams to earthy tones, there is a colour to suit every home and aesthetic. This variety ensures your liquid limestone complements the overall look of your property.

Maintenance Tips For Longevity

To ensure your liquid limestone installation remains in great condition, some maintenance is required. Here are a few tips to keep it looking new over time:

  • Cleaning: Cleaning your surface with a mild detergent and water will help to remove dirt and debris. Harsh chemicals should be avoided as they can cause damage to the surface.
  • Sealing: Periodically sealing (every 2 to 3 years) the finish is required to maintain the appearance and durability of your surface. Sealing helps to protect liquid limestone from stains, moisture and wear.
  • Spot Treatments: Stubborn stains or marks should be addressed promptly to ensure permanent staining is prevented.
  • Pressure Cleaning: Pressure cleaning your liquid limestone surface aids in effectively removing dirt and grime, maintaining its pristine appearance.

By following these simple maintenance tips, you can ensure your liquid limestone surface remains attractive for many years.
