Limestone is a sedimentary rock comprised of the skeletal remains of ocean-dwelling organisms. It typically has a pale white color with a hint of grey. Limestone is used widely in a wide range of buildings. One common use is in the creation of patios. You may use limestone slabs or smaller limestone pavers to create a patio off the back or side of your home. However, before you have such a patio installed, it is important to consider both the pros and cons of limestone as a patio material.
As a homeowner, there are some house problems that are obvious such as a broken lightbulb, but there are other things like mice that aren't quite as obvious. Because mice spread disease and germs, it's important that you have them exterminated as soon as you find them, but how can you tell if you have a problem?

One of the most obvious indicators that you have a mouse problem is finding mice droppings around your house.
The patio may be an area of the home that you assume will only be comfortable to use when the weather is warm during the summer and spring months. However, it is possible to improve your ability to use the patio in the winter by installing a ceiling patio heater. These devices will be able to generate enough heat to make the patio a comfortable place to be throughout the year.
