3 Reasons Your Last Sealant Application Didn’t Last

If it’s only been a few months or a year since your last stone sealant application and you can already see signs of deterioration, you’re probably wondering what went wrong. A high-quality sealant lasts several years. In fact, Texas Stone Sealers offers an extended 5-year warranty for the work that we perform. If you’re already looking for another sealant job, something’s not right.

Unfortunately, pinpointing the issue isn’t always easy. This makes it difficult to guarantee a long-lasting sealant application in the future. For the best results, call a professional company that only uses high-quality cleansers and sealants. That’s Texas Stone Sealers.

Take note of the 3 reasons listed below as to why your last sealant application didn’t last. You don’t have to worry about any of these issues when you call us.



1. The Stone Wasn’t Cleaned Properly

If your stone wasn’t cleaned prior to the sealant application, the job won’t last very long. And when we say clean, we mean really clean. If residue is left on top of the stone, the sealant will bond to that instead. As the residue shifts, due to cleaning or weather, the sealant will progressively wear off.

Texas Stone Sealers makes sure that your stone is truly clean before we apply our sealant. If fact, our cleaning jobs are so spectacular, some customers call us to do just that and nothing else! If you don’t want a new sealant application just yet, we’re happy to pressure wash your stone or perform the necessary maintenance.

2. The Material Wasn’t Neutralized

If the stone was clean before the sealant was applied, do you know what was used to clean it? In most cases, a cleanse needs to be followed up with a neutralizer. This restores the stone to its proper pH balance. If the stone is too acidic, the sealant will break down. Sometimes, contractors of DIYers attempt to skip this stage to cut down on costs. Well, they surely pay for it later.

3. The Sealant Was Weak

If you’re sure the stone was thoroughly clean and properly neutralized, the sealant isn’t might have been the problem. Unfortunately, many sealants on the market are full of gunk that actually doesn’t bind to stone. Materials such as acrylic do little to actually protect the stone. Thus, the sealant deteriorates and wears off within a relatively short amount of time.

That’s why we don’t put filler products in our sealants. Our silica-dense sealants protect stone for years. As a result, we’ve been able to provide long-lasting sealant applications for years now.
