Are you regularly resealing your stone?

Updated: Sep 21, 2021

On completion of your stone floor installation, we recommend that it be immediately sealed and then resealed, at a minimum, every 5 years for indoor tiles and every 2 years for outdoor tiles.  Here's why:

  1. Natural stone tiles are porous, meaning that they can soak up water, grease and stains. Sealer acts as a protective barrier and helps repel stains

  2. Sealer wears down after time leaving your stone vulnerable to staining and scratching from any abrasive action such as sand on the bottom of your shoes

  3. Your floors will be easier to clean as the surface will be smoother and liquids will be less likely to penetrate the stone

  4. You can opt for colour enhancing sealer which will give your stone a richer colour and give your floors and space a fresh new look

Periodic resealing your tiles will ensure the stone maintains its natural characteristics and will keep your floors looking their best for longer.

Note that the floor needs to be professionally cleaned prior to resealing. Call Opiela Tiling for a free assessment of your stone and check out our sealing and restoration services.
