Seal Your Stone Paving from Mould and Permanent Stains
Sealing of Outside Paving is imperative to protect your natural stone. Stones such as Sandstone, Granite and Travertine are the most common types of natural stone paving used. However stones such as Marble, Limestone and Basalt are also used.
As these stone are porous they absorb water, oils and dirt which makes them hard to keep clean. This can therefore make them look dirty which takes away their natural beauty.

Different Types of Penetrating Sealers for Outside Paving
Not all sealers produce the same result. This is why at The marble Man we use different sealers for different stone types and locations. Weather you are after a colour change, a surface coating or you are after a natural look we have a sealer that can suit the application you are after. The main types of penetrating sealers are:
- Penetrating natural look sealer
- Penetrating colour enhancing sealer
- Surface sealer
We recommend against applying any surface sealer to natural stone tiles, especially outside. These types of sealers prevent the stone from breathing. Which causes the surface sealer to eventually peel off the surface and can make your paving look very unsightly. Then when it is time remove what sealer is left the process can be difficult and can damage the stone. Avoid surface sealers at all costs.
Types of Stone Paving that should be sealed
The importance of sealing often depends on the location and the type of stone. In general though all outside stone should be sealed to protect it. Sealing natural stone paving is important because stone is naturally porous and therefore absorbs liquids and materials in the surface of the stone and grout. This is due to the capillaries in the stone structure which allows and liquids through. This is the same process that happens naturally when the stone is in the ground. Weather you have Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Granite, Basalt or Sandstone all these material require sealing.
