Advantages & Sealing

Sealing

Sealing

It has been valued for its strength, durability, and insulation properties. It can be cut, cleft, or sculpted to shape as required, and the variety of natural stone types, textures, and colors provide an exceptionally versatile range of building materials. The porosity and makeup of most stone does, however, leave it prone to certain types of damage if unsealed.

Staining is the most common form of damage. It is the result of oils or other liquids penetrate deeply into the capillary channels and deposit material that is effectively impossible to remove without destroying the stone.

Salt Attack occurs when salts dissolved in water are carried into the stone.

The two commonest effects are efflorescence and spalling. Salts that expand on crystallization in capillary gaps can cause surface spalling.

Sealing helps protect the surface for longer.

Advantages

Advantages

  • Adds property value and curb appeal
  • Natural Stone does not necessarily have to cost more than using equivalent concrete products
  • Each piece of beautiful natural stone has a unique blend of colours and tones which makes your garden / driveway / landscape, completely unlike concrete, where for the most part all pieces are manufactured to be identical and therefore relatively characterless in comparison.
  • Natural Stone Paving and landscaping products are more sustainable and environmentally friendly than manufactured Concrete alternatives.
  • Durable and low maintenance
