The Benefits of Sealing Natural Stone

The Benefits of Sealing Natural Stone

Natural stone is the most sought-after material in architectural design. Exquisite stone selections can transform ordinary rooms into extraordinary, one-of-a-kind spaces. However, to maintain its look and feel, stone sealants are highly recommended to ensure your projects stand the test of time for generations to come. 

Preserve The Beauty Of Your Natural Stone

A stone sealer is a transparent protective material applied to the surface of natural stone, forming a barrier that enhances its resistance to wear and tear. Stone is naturally porous and requires special care, particularly in high-traffic areas. At MATERIAL Bespoke Stone + Tile, we advise using sealants for all stone types, as they offer several advantages, including stain prevention and longevity. Stone sealant will also safeguard your stone from weathering, erosion, and UV damage. 

After installation, it is advisable to clean the stone and perform a sealant test on a small section. The sealing process binds the stone and anything present on the stone's surface. After sealing, it's crucial to follow specific aftercare guidelines. Avoid harsh or acidic cleaning products, and promptly clean up any spills as they occur to avoid stains and ensure longevity. 

If you're looking to enhance the visual appeal of your stone, MATERIAL's team of experts highly recommend Dry-Treat, which penetrates deep, enhances the natural stone color, and forms a strong oil and water-repellent barrier.

Types of Stone Sealers 

The type of sealer you select varies on location and use. Topical sealers are great for interior applications like stone wall tile, counters, or flooring, while exterior architectural elements require penetrating sealers that absorb into the material for long-lasting protection. 

Featured projects like The Castlebrook Farm Estate showcase stunning custom bespoke stone fabrications with Riviera Beige Limestone, Latte Travertine, and Carmel Travertine. Each architectural element, from flooring to mosaics, moldings, stairs, and hardscapes, is protected with a quality sealant.
