Grey vs Cream rock

When choosing rock for any job, it is important to consider what type of limestone to choose for your foundation. Here at South West Butler Quarry we are a limestone quarry, so this will focus on the two types of limestone we sell. The primary difference between Grey rock and Cream rock is that Grey rock only absorbs 4% moisture while Cream rock absorbs around 7%. This makes Grey rock less likely to track into homes, or become muddy. Another difference of Grey rock is that its dust is far less visible when compared to Cream. Cream however does pack down better and lends itself towards a more solid foundation.
