“Are You Ready To Get Your Limestone Sealed ….”
|The light patch in the middle is where we’ve removed the coating – the first step in restoring this stone.|
Topcoat/surface sealers scratch and scuff much more easily than the stone itself. They will also flake, peel, and if applied too quickly can trap air bubbles and dirt underneath. This leads to a dirty hazy looking floor which most homeowners are unhappy with in a short time.
Limestone sealing is a process that we routinely perform. Cleaning limestone is virtually always preceded by limestone sealing. Travertine can be absorbent and is prone to hold dirt, grime and other contaminates in the surface. This is especially true when improper limestone cleaning procedures are practiced. Our Stone Care Guide provides detailed instructions on proper limestone maintenance.
Limestone when finished (during fabrication or after market) at a higher honed or polished state will become increasingly resistant to absorption naturally as the surface tension of a highly honed stone or polished stone is greater than that of a tumbled or less honed surface; such as a matte finish. It is imperative to have your limestone sealed when you have any level of limestone restoration or limestone honing performed.
One of the biggest mistakes we see with sealing limestone is installers, and others (the list is long) that are simply uneducated in sealing limestone is applying the wrong sealer and applying it to achieve a result that is both improper and often results in resorting to some level of limestone restoration services to remedy the problem.
