Our team has years of experience helping home and business owners get the most out of their flooring and stone surfaces.

Sealant is one of the most effective and affordable methods to protect natural stone surfaces from rapid aging or damage. Listed below are some of the main benefits of sealing the stone in your home or business:

  • Stain Resistance: Natural stone, including marble, granite, limestone, and travertine, are porous materials. This means, they have small holes that lead deep into their structure. These holes can absorb liquids and cause unsightly staining. Sealant provides a barrier, filling the pores and reducing their ability to absorb liquids. This makes the stone more resistant to stains from spills and other substances.
  • Water Resistance: In addition to staining, moisture can also damage natural stone. When water seeps into the stone, it can lead to the growth of mold, mildew, or algae, causing color change and damage. Sealant creates a hydrophobic surface, preventing water from penetrating the stone and reducing the risk of water-related damage.
  • Chemical Resistance: Certain household chemicals, acidic substances, and cleaning agents can be harmful to natural stone surfaces. Sealant provides a protective layer that helps repel these chemicals, preventing them from etching or damaging the stone’s surface.
  • Wear and Tear Protection: High-traffic areas or surfaces exposed to heavy use, such as countertops or flooring, are prone to wear and tear over time. Sealant forms a protective barrier that can reduce the impact of foot traffic, abrasion, and general wear, extending the life of the natural stone and preserving its appearance.
  • Enhancing Appearance: Some sealants have color-enhancing properties that can intensify the natural colors and patterns of the stone, giving it a more vibrant and appealing appearance. This can be particularly beneficial for enhancing the aesthetics of elements made from natural stone.

It’s important to note that sealants provide varying levels of protection depending on the type of stone, the quality of the sealant, and the application technique. Different types of natural stones may require specific sealants formulated for their unique properties, so it’s recommended to consult with a professional for the best sealant choice and application method for a particular stone surface.
