Stone Sealing

Many stone restoration, repair and maintenance projects are concluded with the application of a stone sealer.  Most natural stone surfaces will benefit from the use of a high quality penetrating sealer.  There are many sealer types to choose from, however they are designed to repel water, oil and other contaminates.  A thoroughly applied sealer should help prevent these potential stains from penetrating deep into your porous stone.  Of course, some stones are more porous than others, requiring more sealer or more frequent sealer application while others are quite difficult to stain, thus requiring less frequent sealer application and in some case no sealer is required at all.

Most natural stones are porous to some degree. A high-quality sealant helps restrict the absorption of water, oil, and dirt that stain and deteriorate the surface of the stone.  Stone is typically sealed after installation. Sealant wears over time, and a periodic reapplication of sealer is necessary for proper protection of stone surfaces. There are many factors such as cleaning procedures and traffic volume that affect the longevity of the sealant.

Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Granite, and Onyx

For Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Granite and Onyx, impregnator sealers are used for both interior and exterior applications.  An impregnator sealer is designed to penetrate into the surface of the stone. Penetrating sealers work by restricting the absorption of water, oil and dirt from within the stone.  No sealer is left on the surface. Properly applied, a high-quality impregnator sealer will not affect the texture or the appearance of the stone.
