Limestone Façade

Limestone has been a highly- prized building material for millennia and with good reason. This classic natural stone requires little maintenance and offers durability, reliability, and corrosion and heat resistance.

What sets limestone apart from other stone is the stunning colours and unique patterns it offers. It is also offers the option of a textured or a smooth finish to perfectly suit your tastes and design esthetic.

Direct from Quarries

At KM Haus we source our limestone directly from quarries in Portugal and India. These quarries offer top quality limestone cut to size in a wide range of colours and textures to meet your design needs. This reduces facade costs, without sacrificing quality.

The Process

Defining the Details

Some homeowners have a basic idea of what they would like to see on the façade of their home. Others need inspiration. Luckily, KM Haus can guide you in either case. We’ll discuss your design wishes and suggest options in our catalog. Alternatively, skim through the catalog and then we’ll explain how we can make it a reality.

“See” Your Facade

After choosing your façade material, we’ll prepare a 3D drawing so you can “see” your façade design. Once you’re satisfied with what you see, we’ll prepare a contract and order the materials. KM Haus requires a deposit at this time.

Stone Clip Bracket System

There’s no way around it: limestone is heavy. Its heft gives it permanence, strength, and power. To ensure it is handled properly, we use a top-of-the-line anchoring system that extends the life of limestone, increases integrity, and offers energy-efficiency.

The stone sits slightly away from the home, creating an insulated pocket of air. This helps retain heat in your home and promotes air flow to eliminate moisture.  Mechanical fixings support the bottom of the panel and dead load and also restrain the top of the panels increasing integrity.

This type of installation system is also faster and more cost-effective than traditional methods.

Warranty

KM Haus believes fine homes deserve fine workmanship and we stand behind our facades. Our facade projects include a 10-year warranty.
