Stone Sealing in NYC

Water is one of the biggest threats to stone surfaces. Freeze-thaw, erosion and repeated exposure to water may slowly cause the stone to start breaking down and eventually compromise the integrity of its surface. Sealing the stone can improve the ability of the stone surface to resist water and other elements that weaken, stain and soil them. Moreover, you wouldn't need aggressive cleaning detergents to remove the stubborn stains as well.

Stone Sealing in NYC
Stone surfaces such as Marble, Granite, Limestone and a others are a substantial investment. It is not something you would remove or replace so easily. Getting a stone sealing in NYC from a trusted stone company, like Statewide Stone Care, can help protect your stone surfaces so that they can remain in great shape for a longer period of time.

Common stone surfaces such as porcelain, travertine, sandstone and many more require a sealing for which they usually have holes where dirt and water may hide and slowly lead to the deterioration of the natural surface.

Here are  a few common types of stone damage that stone sealing in NYC can prevent:

Staining

Stone staining comes from the penetration of oils or other liquids, which once upon the stone surface can make removing them without damaging the stone difficult.


Salt Attacks

This occurs when salts are dissolved in water and enters into the porous surface. The salts expand and cause a gritty white deposit on the surface, which is called efflorescence. The minerals deep in the soil are then drawn to the surface, reacting with the salts. On other occasions, the water freezes inside the pores and expands, which results in the stone becoming cracked.

Acid Attacks

Stones like limestone, sandstone and travertine have extreme reactions when coming into contact with acid. These effects include leaving dull marks on the surface, pitting and gradual erosion. Mild household acidic solutions such as vinegar, cola, wine and lemon juice can be harmful to some types of stones with some damages being irreparable.
