CASE STUDY:

PORTLAND LIMESTONE

Here at Stone Sign Co, we work with a variety of beautiful natural stones to create our bespoke plaques. Perhaps one of our best loved is Portland Limestone, a beautiful stone that has been used as a popular building material since the 1600s.

Portland Limestone is a hugely popular choice for commemorative, business and house plaques thanks to its wonderful properties and beautiful appearance. It is exceptionally durable in outdoor conditions, ensuring that any plaques made from this quality stone will last for years to come. Portland Stone is sufficiently cemented to resist natural weathering, but is also easily carved into any required design. It is a highly favoured stone for architectural purposes due to its supreme quality and versatility.

This distinctive stone has a light cream/grey finish that holds its beauty for years. We love the beauty of quality Portland Stone with a smooth, fine-rubbed finish and natural engraving. This clean look is a timeless choice for any purpose, but is hugely popular for custom house plaques. Black enamel infill is a wonderful choice for the inscription, offering a striking contrast to the lighter colour of the stone.
