Natural Stone is porous and so without adequate protection it will absorb spilled liquids which in some instances will stain. Even tap water contains minerals, salts and usually chlorine which are all potentially damaging to some stones. For this reason, all stone surfaces should be sealed in order to protect them.
To ensure long life, durability and efficiency, a necessary sealant is required. Waterproofing products create a protective barrier on the surface of the stone that repels liquids and prevents the stone from being absorbed and destroyed. This process is the final touch in any marble, granite, etc. installation or restoration work.
There are a range of different waterproofing products available. Choosing the best natural stone sealer will depend largely on the type of stone you have and its usage.
We are proud to introduce the new REPEL product line. These products have been added to our range in our ongoing effort to meet even the most demanding waterproofing cases.
