Split Face Indiana Limestone Veneer

Splitface Limestone veneer is a solid, genuine natural Indiana Limestone split faced veneer. The variation of height courses creates a classic and pleasing random definition for both commercial and fine residential structures.

Indiana Limestone veneer offers a classic and elegant look that lasts a lifetime. Orignially only used on large estates and multi million dollar commercial and residental buildings because of cost contraints for a normal budget KGO Stone offers a standard line of veneers that will bring the desired classic design and not break the budgets set.

Indiana limestone veneer is a classic trend and as a leader in the natural stone industry we want our natural Indiana limestone in your project. We fabricate to spec. standard (4" Thick) limestone veneers and thin (1" Thick) limestone Veneer to provide a full project fufillment with one source supply.

Beauty and Durability

- Split Face Indiana Limestone is made of the same naturally durable and high quality raw material used in many of our nation’s most renowned buildings.
- The split face full color blend Indiana Limestone exhibits the beauty of the subtle color and grain variations in the natural stone.
- Split Face Indiana Limestone adds a sense of permanence and lasting value to any commercial or residential project.

Competitive Installed Cost

- This historic natural stone is competitively priced against engineered and cast stone imitations.

Sustainability Features of Indiana Limestone
Indiana Limestone is a 350 million year old representation of life naturally fused to form a unique building material. Extracted with relative ease, Indiana Limestone is an outcrop formation adding little to the already low energy inputs of its workability. Cladding countless monumental buildings, Indiana Limestone withstands the test of time and when decommissioned, can be reused or returned harmlessly to the earth.

  • Naturally formed
  • Inert – no VOC emissions or pollutants
  • Low energy inputs
  • Durable – lifespan greater than 100 years
  • Eligible for LEED credits

When you choose genuine Indiana Limestone, a natural stone for your building project, you can count on these sustainability features:

Low Life Cycle Costs
Indiana Limestone is virtually maintenance-free and requires only the occasional re-pointing of stone joints and cleaning, if desired. With minimal care, Indiana Limestone projects will serve present and future generations for many years to come.

Reusable/Recyclable
It is common in restoration projects involving Indiana Limestone for the majority of the original stone to remain in place for continued use once the restoration work is completed. Indiana Limestone can also be taken from one project and re-used as elements in another building, landscape stones, perimeter walls, or even as site fill. It’s completely inert—Indiana Limestone came from nature and can go back to same.

Environmentally Friendly Production Processes
Since the first organized Indiana Limestone quarry opened in 1827, Indiana Limestone has been in constant use making an impact on American architecture. Projects utilizing Indiana Limestone, many of which are up to 100 years old, exist in every American city and in many small towns and villages, in Canada, and in every type of atmosphere. Though found in only three Indiana counties, it is estimated that with current production methods between a 500 & 1,000 year supply of stone remains.

Leadership of Indiana Limestone Company
KGO Stone takes a proud leadership role in sustainability and conservation. We take stewardship of this resource and strive to sustain the century old legacy of supplying it as one of the world’s great building materials. Our lifeblood is this natural resource relying on the ingenuity to ensure its availability for the future. Our permanence is protected by our desire to leesen the impact we have on our planet.

Delivery, Storage, and Handling

- Product will be supplied adequately packaged on pallets or timbers to keep finished stone clear of the ground.
- Storage area should be a well-drained space graveled or chipped for protection against mud splatters.
- When using pry bars to move stone into place, use padding to protect the edges of the stone.

Protection of Base Courses and Unfinished Work
- To avoid possible unsightly stains caused by mud or other splashing, the ground at the base of the structure should be covered with protective material during construction.This should be left intact until landscaping is complete.
- During construction, tops of walls should be carefully protected to prevent rain, snow, or seepage from entering space between veneer and backing.

Setting Mortar
- Setting mortar shall be ASTM C-270 Type N composed of one part Portland cement, one part mason’s lime, and six parts sand mixed with potable water, or one part masonry cement and two and three-fourths parts sand mixed with potable water.

Anchors
- Anchor ILC veneer securely to sheathing, wood framing, or masonry backing. Use galvanized iron wall ties. These ties should be spaced approximately 24” vertically and 18” horizontally.

Cleaning
- After mortar has set, the wall should be brushed down with a stiff fiber brush, and then carefully rinsed with clear water to remove any accumulation of stain or matter foreign to the Limestone.

Damp proofing
- Where limestone is to be used at or below grade, damp proofing must be applied.
- Damp proofing the face of backup or structural concrete is helpful, but is not a substitute for back painting the stone.
- In cases where limestone is to be covered by soil or paving at grade, and where the stones will present an evaporation surface above grade, the damp proofing must be carried up the partially exposed face at least to grade level.
- ILC recommends a cementation based waterproof coating such as Thoroseal.

Properties of Indiana Limestone
Most building designs that incorporate Indiana Limestone consider these properties:
- Ultimate compressive strength of dry specimens
       Value: 4,000 psi min.* Test STD: ASTM C170
- Modulus of rupture of dry specimens
       Value: 700 psi min.** Test STD: ASTM C99
- Absorption
       Value: 7.5 % max. Test STD: ASTM C97
*Most Indiana Limestone products indicate min. values in excess of 4,000 psi, but this value is listed as an engineering reference.
**Windload and other bending forces are typically calculated at 1,000 psi for modulus of rapture.
NOTE: All Indiana Limestone meets or exceeds the strength requirements set forth in ASTM C-568 for Type II Dimension Limestone.
- Abrasion Resistance
       When used in flooring, paving, or steps, the abrasion resistance should be specified.
- Value Range: (Abrasive Hardness)
       6 min. to 17 max.† Test STD: ASTM C241
†Stone preparation and installation details are important in assuring hardness of 8 for heavy traffic areas. Specify abrasive hardness of 6 for light traffic areas such as patios, plazas and wide sidewalks.
