Installation of Stone
When installing stone, dry laying and blending are important and often critical. Grout guard or grout release can be used to protect textured surfaces. Sealing is strongly suggested and a sealant and cleaner should be part of every order. Please note that sealing is not fail-safe; some degradation may still occur. The following products are offered by The Miracle Sealants Company. Their use when installing stone is highly recommended:
- 511 Impregnator is the original penetrating sealer designed for the protection of all medium to dense porous surfaces. 511 Impregnator forms an invisible barrier that is resistant to moisture and stains while allowing vapor to escape. 511 Impregnator is not a surface coating and will not alter the natural look. All surfaces treated are harder and less slippery.
- 511 Porous Plus is a penetrating sealer designed for the protection of most porous surfaces. 511 Porous Plus forms an invisible barrier that is resistant to moisture and stains while allowing vapor to escape. 511 Porous Plus is not a surface coating and will not alter the natural look.
