Premium Stone Care with Sealer

Maintaining the natural beauty of premium stone not only makes it look great, but it can also extend the life of the stone. For high traffic or heavy use areas of stone such as flooring, counter tops, or backsplashes, using a premium stone sealer is necessary. Properly applying sealerwill provide maximum protection and keep these areas looking like new no matter how much abuse they endure.

Oils, food residue, dyes, and stains can ruin the look and feel of laid stone. A stone sealer blocks these and other damaging agents from seeping into the stone and causing wear, cracks, chips, and even fading. In addition, for high spill areas like counter tops, it makes for quicker clean up as the offending agents can be wiped away with an everyday paper towel without fear of damaging the stone.

Using a water-based premium stone sealer preserves the natural color and gloss of your stone. Our 511 Porous + Sealer is environmentally friendly and can be used for both interior and exterior stone care. It is most effective on:
