Whitbed, basebed and roach
Our natural Portland stone is available in three main beds – whitbed, basebed and roach.
Offering different aesthetics and properties that have formed over 145 million years. Each bed type will have a variation within itself and can be tailored to suit your project requirements.
Oolitic limestone consists principally of calcium carbonate and has a granular structure produced by shell fragments, mud and sand. The stone is quarried and mined, sawn to shape with the surface machined to produce the texture or pattern required.
We provide a range of oolitic limestones supplied in regular sawn slabs or in special shapes, used for a variety of cladding and decorative applications in buildings.
All types of stone supplied are suitable for external or internal use for wall cladding, coping, capping, cills, lintels and decorative features. Portland stone is also suitable for walling and flooring.
