How to Protect Flagstone, Saltillo, & Slate Tiles

Absorbent surface products should have a top coat sealer applied. Top coat sealers protect the surface from direct wear and stains. Sealers also bring out the color of your natural stone, and most have a durable reflective sheen.

Top coat sealers will show wear, scratches and scuff marks; however, most can be buffed to bring out the shine again. Some top coats can flake or blister if moisture gets underneath. Absorbent stones and tiles can have a penetrating sealer applied instead, but remember that the surface of the tile is still exposed to direct wear and damage. Always remember when re-sealing to have the surface stripped or cleaned so that dirt is not sealed in.
