Since ancient times, limestone has been known as an inexpensive and reliable building material. The main problem of limestone materials in the construction of buildings is its reduced longevity due to various factors, such as wind and rain. These factors have a huge impact on the strength characteristics of the building material, so adherence to special recommendations is an important practical task. A review of literature on the problem of durability and the use of limestone is presented. With the help of experience, the strength of nummulite limestone is established. The analysis of the obtained data is made, as well as its comparison with the indices of other artificial and natural stones. The main methods of strengthening the structures made of limestone are considered at three different stages. Practical recommendations for minimizing the impact of negative factors on this material are given.
