The uses of limestone screening vary from aesthetics to practical building supports.

White Screen Stone Usages

  • Screening for Practical Building Supports
  • Screening for Edging Garden Beds
  • Screening as Mortar for Brick or Stone Pathways and Patios

Popular For Its Grey Blue Color

The Three Quarter Inch Limestone is a very popular product for paves.  Our 3/4 inch limestone is perfectly clean and ready for deployment.  While limestone is more costly than recycled CA-6 or Grade 8 it provides a consitent base that doesn’t contain possible recycled fragments that might otherwise undermine a serious application such as a made highway or county road.  When considering important projects where a top grade stone products is required for bedding or base, then the 3/4 inch limestone is the way to go.

3/4 Inch Limestone

  • Utility Pipe Bedding
  • Pre-cast Concrete Production
  • Subbase for Concrete Sidewalks
  • Driveways and Porch Boxes
  • Limestone road base

CA-6

CA-6 (Recycled Stone)CA6: A Recycled Limestone with Fines

When considering CA-6 it’s important to remember that while our recycled materials are cleaned thoroughly, it is not uncommon to find fragments of alternative building materials. However, is imperfection is offset by the cost saving that can benefit smaller, less weight stressed projects. At JKS we strive for 99% recycled purity and our CA-6 materials is a great testimony to our commitment.

Like Grade 8 CA-6 is frequently utilized as a base for a variety of applications including the following.

CA-6 Limestone Uses

  • CA6 for Small Patios
  • CA6 as a Concrete
  • CA6 for Small Sidewalks
