Hi-Performance Protection

At Patriot Stone Restoration our experts service commercial and residential clients throughout the  Alameda and Contra Costa County area with the right kind of stone, tile and grout protection treatments for their unique needs.

About Sealing

Most natural stone is porous and some are sensitive to etching. For porous stone you want to fill those tiny holes to protect it from staining agents being able to penetrate. For acid sensitive stone, you may require a protective barrier between not only staining agents, but acidic substances and your stone. Clay tiles and pavers require other types of sealers, and grout requires a different kind of sealer to inhibit stains. 

A good quality impregnating sealer gives you time to clean up spills before they become stains…

The right kind of sealer is determined by several things, including the type of material, where it is located, and what you want the look to be. At Patriot Stone Restoration be assured that we only use the very highest quality, professional sealing and protection products on the market today, and we are happy to consult with you on the type of protection you need for your natural stone or tile surfaces.

Impregnating Sealer

The primary job of an impregnating sealer is to fill in the tiny pores in natural stone to inhibit staining agents from being able to leave a stain on your natural stone surfaces. 

Inside the pores our special sealing molecules bond permanently by chemical reactions, creating a substantial, deep oil and water-repellent barrier.

The barrier not only provides great surface stain protection, but also protection against more serious common types of damage cause by water ingress (penetration), including efflorescence, salt spalling, freeze-thaw spalling, and picture framing.

Our sealer is safe for use on food preparation surfaces and not sensitive to most common household acidic substances. The result is semi-permanent and provides optimum sealing capabilities protecting against oil and water based staining agents.

Enhancing Sealers

Color enhancing sealers are also impregnating sealers, but they are designed to bring out the color in certain natural stones while offering excellent protection. If you like the color of your slate, travertine, flagstone, etc. when it gets wet, then enhancing sealer is the option for you.

Important Note: Impregnating stone sealers cannot prevent etching. Impregnating sealers penetrate beneath the surface of the stone to fill the tiny pores.

Anti-Etch Treatments

For acid-sensitive stone counters, bar tops, table tops, etc. (e.g. marble, onyx, travertine) we offer state-of-the-art solutions to protect the stone from etching as well as protecting from stains.

Our protective coating adds a new level of protection against stains and etches from acidic substances such as fruit juices and wine, improper cleaners such as bleach, cosmetics, and other substances.

The coating can be applied to marble, limestone, travertine, onyx, and concrete. It is especially ideal on countertops, conference tables and desks, bar tops, and other surfaces that see a lot of traffic and use. It can prevent premature wear of your stone so that you can avoid hefty restoration costs.

Grout Color Sealing

Grout Color Sealing is a Game Changer! Watch the video to learn more.
If your grout has permanent stains or a blotchy appearance due to improper installation, grout color sealing may be the solution you are looking for. With our grout color sealing services, we can match your existing color, or we can change the color of your grout to any color you want and give your floors a completely different look. Plus, color sealing actually prevents staining, a very common grout problem.
With constant-acting mildewcides and fungicides, your grout stays cleaner and healthier than unsealed or clear sealed grout.
