I have uncovered a stone wall inside my house. The stone needs sealed to stop dust but it is also dull looking. What would be the best product of yours to use? I would prefer a gloss finish to a Matt finish. As it’s an internal wall I understand it needs to be able to breathe or damp becomes an issue. Please can you advise?

For an Internal wall I would recommend using our Water based sealer (link below), it is safe to work with when applying it to a vertical surface and it has very little odour so wont smell the house out.

l have had a patio laid two years ago with Indian stone and didn’t realise how easily it stained. I am going to clean it this spring and would like to see if l can protect it with a sealer but not darken the colour if possible, could you please advise, approximately 85 square meters area,

As you are looking to keep the paving looking as it does when it is dry I would recommend the Water based Matt sealer (link below) this will have very little effect on the appearance but will offer a good amount of protection for the stone.

protecting stone from lichen and algae with sealer

I have a terrace of indian sandstone which has developed terrible black spot lichen everywhere. I have pressure hosed off as much as possible but cant get it all off. If I could keep it like it is that would be ok even tho some spots remain.
Would your Stone and Slate Protector prevent the regrowth of the lichens and algae.

Yes applying sealer to the surface will stop the algae and lichen from being able to take hold on the paving (it may form on the surface but it will be easy to wash off/treat), if the algae does come back (if there are a lot of trees in you area) it can be treated with our moss and algae remover which you just spray on to the paving and leave to do its thing.

I have a paved patio which has stone or concrete slabs and in need of protection from stains and general annual growth. Can you advise what is the best product in your range to use?

If you are uncertain whether the flags are stone or concrete I would recommend using our Stone and Slate Protector (link below), this will be ok to use on either surface.

Can you advise on when to use your AdSeal Stone and Slate Sealer on my newly as in two weeks old Indian stone patio . Some say leave till summer others say wait for a dry day ??

To apply the sealer you need the stone to be dry and the temperature to be above 5 degrees.

You will also want the weather to stay dry for a minimum of 2 hours after you finish applying the sealer.

Hello, I have a natural blond sandstone hearth and wanted to check which of your products would be best for colouring it.

Unfortunately the stains and dyes that we sell are designed for use on concrete surfaces and not suitable for use on natural stone.

We sealed our new patio with resiblock gloss sealer, the patio is grey Indian paving.
It is an absolute mess patchy and looks like we have painted old flags!! Will your stripper remove it I noticed an article where someone removed sealant using it

You will need to use the Easy strip 2000 (link below) to remove the Resiblock sealer.

natural stone paving enhancer

ANNETTE AMNER

Please may you advise if you have a suitable product for enhancing existing natural stone slabs without changing the overall colour. Over time, fading has occurred in some areas and we wish to bring the slabs back to their original natural buff colour without actually changing the overall colour. We are looking for a matt finish and, once this procedure has been carried out, we then wish to apply a natural stone sealant. Thank you for your advice and assistance.

Applying a coat of sealer will enhance the colour of the slabs and leave them looking as they do when they are wet.

If you apply 1 coat you will get a matte finish.

Wet look sealant for slate tiles

Bill Small

I’m looking for a durable sealant that I don’t have to reapply every year. We have natural slate tiles (sheera modular) and we are after a wet look finish on them. What would you recommend and do I need to prep the tiles with anything first? The total floor size is 50m2 .if you could email me that would be great.

If you are looking for a long lasting gloss finish sealer I would recommend using our High Gloss PU seal (link below), I think this will be what you are looking for.

I have just had a patio laid with sandstone slabs. Could you please tell me which is the best sealant and protector for these? Thank you.

I usually recommend the Stone and Slate sealer as this offers a matte finish with one coat or a satin to light gloss finish with 2 coats.
