by Sealing, Cleaning & Restoring

atural stone and concrete are excellent choices for durability. Although they can withstand the test of time, they are subject to wear and tear, dirt build- up, moisture and are not impervious to spills and heavy foot traffic. For newly constructed and remodeled home, sealing natural stone surfaces maintains optimum stain resistance and protects against everyday dirt and spills. After a period of time you will begin to see discoloration, chipping, etching and ultimately the stone and concrete will look dull, bringing down the overall ambience of indoor and exterior living spaces. Maintenance is essential to protect your investment and maintain the value and safety of your home. The cleaning and sealing performed during regular maintenance will enhance the beauty of the natural colors and textures, preserving your home’s appearance for years to come. Dirt, mold, calcium deposits, salt damage and even algae can make their home in any permeable surface. These contaminants mar the beauty of your surfaces and can cause potential health concerns. In addition, if left unchecked, failing sealant may cause cracks creating trip hazards. The maintenance of each type of natural stone, along with the type of finish and location in your home, necessitates the need for a




knowledgeable, experienced professional who understands the different requirements for cleaning and sealing.
