Selecting the right natural stone, tiles and other hard surface materials that best suit your needs is always a difficult task and it’s natural to expect that the finished look will be everything you hoped for. However, the end result is often a different story!


This is because our expectations are unrealistic. We expect the products we’ve selected, most of which are porous, will retain their pristine appearance without the protection of a sealer and we are disappointed when, in no time, they become contaminated with grime, mould and other immovable stains.


A sealer simply provides “reaction time”. That is sufficient time to clean the surface after a spill  before staining occurs. The better the sealer the longer the reaction time. A premium sealer will stop contaminants from penetrating deep into the surface making the removal of stains, in most cases, a simple process.

 

At Restile we understand the importance of getting it right, first
time. Get it wrong and the sealer may not only be ineffective,
but it may have to be stripped and the surface resealed.

Selection of the best and most appropriate sealer for every
type of surface is therefore vital with a lot more than just
the finished look to consider. Before selecting the sealer, the
following must be taken into account, surface identification
and location.


Restile will introduce you to the best possible sealing options
available to satisfy your individual expectations, as well
as the ongoing maintenance requirements of these sealers
and coatings.
