How to Seal Natural Stone

Sealing natural stone can be easy. Sealing any type of natural stone is a great way to extend your stones life and enhance it's appearance. Here is a step by step guide on how to seal slate, granite, limestone, or any other type of natural stone.

Using a regular broom, sweep the stone completely dry of all dirt and debris. This is also a good time to remove any over growth if you are sealing natural stone outside.

Scrub the natural stone clean with a simple soap and water solution. Make sure you use a nylon scrub brush. Metal scrub brushes will damage many types of softer natural stone. Allow 4-6 hours for the stone to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Pour your stone sealer - I prefer to use Glaze N Seal All Purpose Sealer - into a small bucket. Shake the can vigorously before opening it to insure a complete mixture.

Slowly dip your sponge into the sealer and apply it to the natural stone. You want to put it on thick, but avoid leaving any pools of sealer. Only dip the very end of the sponge into the sealer to avoid direct contact with your skin. It won't hurt you but it is a pain to wash the smell off later.

Let the natural stone sealer dry for at least 24 hours for a full cure before stepping on the stone.
