Sealers are applied to enhance stain resistance by filling in pores in the stone. Sealers can be either penetrating or topical.
Penetrating sealers such as MARBLELIFE® Stone Sealers are designed to soak into the pores. Topical sealers, on the other hand, are designed to seal and to modify the finish or color of the surface.
Sealing Marble or Granite Countertops
Countertops encounter more potentially staining liquids than almost any other surface (cooking grease being the most common). Unresinated countertops are especially susceptible to spill absorption and staining.
Resination is the process of reducing stone brittleness by filling capillaries and pores in the stone with a polyester resin. Unfortunately, this is not an easily identifiable feature, and the counter does not often provide indications of resination.
The cost of sealing is substantially lower than the cost of replacing the counter if stained. Stone should be sealed every other year.
Jim & I are extremely satisfied with the quality of work of your company. Phillip and Josh were hard-working, professional and carrying! Thank you again for a GREAT job. Betty & Jim Smeenge
We have about 800 sq feet of marbel flooring that we walk and play on. We have lived here in Pelican Bay, Daytona Beach twenty years with loads of company and visitors. We have two young grandsons, 8 & 10 who love to slide and play on the marbel. After twenty years of motorcycle boots and ten years of playing the marbel was a mess. Marblelife with owner Michael brought the marble back to life. It took two days of busywork and the marble looked great. My wife loves it and she especially loves Marblelife. There was no cleanup for her once the job was complete. I really enjoyed the professional Marblelife personnel. The made a hard job look easy. And no mess to clean up.
Mike worked very hard and it shows! The floors are beautiful, perfectly polished and glowing with shine. Thank you for your service and professionalism.
The job was excellent. My wife said your staff was very professional.
It was a very good experience. Phil and Josh did a great job, were incredibly pleasant and professional and went way overboard to please me and my husband.
I am very happy with the great job they did.
Excellent. I have already recommended you to a friend. She will call you.
I am not an easy customer to please when I have people working in my home. But I have to tell you that the two men who were here working on my travertine floor were the nicest people who I have ever had do any work in my home. The floor looks great. They did a fabulous job cleaning the travertine and sealing the grout with a new color. What a tedious job! I use your products and now will continue to use your services. Thank you so much!
Mike was very courteous and efficient. He did an excellent job on our vanities..they look like new! I would highly recommend Marblelife to any of my friends and acquaintences.
Great service and the work was very nice.
My bathroom & bedroom look great!
Pleased. The guys did a great job and did not leave a mess.
very professional. no wasted time
Wow!!!! The job done on my exotic granite island is absolutely incredible, the luster and beautiful shine that has been restored is indescribable. I recommend this company without hesitation or reserve, the knowledge of the product from Mike was very comforting, thank you to Marblelife for making me feel that my granite is as beautiful as when I first had it put in 11 years ago!!!
Very professional and done in the timeframe you had originally stated and the outcome was very good
Very polite and courteous staff. Our floors and counter tops turned out amazing!
Estimate was done quickly after initial contact.
Service was scheduled quickly after estimate and acceptance.
Technicians were great!
I am totally pleased with my results - grout looks like it did when the house was completed 10 years ago. And, this was the first time it had ever been cleaned.
They were very professional, and well versed in the care of natural stone. The prices quoted were fair in comparisons to others. When they came to do the work they were very professional and detailed in the care of the floor. I was very pleased and would gladly have them back again
Sales person very knowledgeable. Service well experienced, kind and considerate. Took care NOT to damage walls.
Workers showed up on time. They did an excellent job, and were very careful not to leave a mess. I will recommend them, and use them again.
The guys who came out to our house did a wonderful job of cleaning our shower and the bath's marble floors.
I am very impressed with this company, they were at my home within a day to give me an estimate and in 4 days the job was completed. The put a lot of time in protecting my floors and surrounding areas. They left my kitchen spotless and my 10 year old marble looked like new. The technicians were true professionals and went over and beyond what they were hired to do. They even turned me on to an amazing product for my wood floors and I have used Bona for many years. I am a convert now.
I can sum it up by saying they were very professional, courteous and clean. I will make this an annual service. L.Gray
They called and asked if they could come earlier then scheduled, that suited me perfercly
What a great company!! Reliable...dependable and very, very nice.
I would highly recommend Marblelife of Central Florida. A very well run organized company. Many, many thanks !! My floors and staircase look beautiful.
Great job, great service! Our Travertine floors look beautiful.
Very Professional and courteous!
Professional, timely and experienced.
New Stone or Tile Installations
Ceramic and Porcelain tile do NOT need to be sealed, BUT the grout does.
Grout is particularly porous. In fact, most new floors show signs of staining within 6-months of installation.
Grout is made from a colored Portland cement mixture. When the grout cures, water evaporates from the mixture, leaving behind a fine network of capillaries and pores. Dirt, debris, and spills use these capillary and porous pathways to stain your grout. Once absorbed, they can no longer be wiped away, leaving your grout discolored and dingy.
Many “Tile Cleaners” are tile-safe but grout damaging. Once the seal has been damaged or removed, even mopping can transport solubilized particles and dirt from your tile into your absorbent grout lines.
The good news is that this problem can be reversed in a day. Sealing your grout is the easiest way to prevent such discoloration from occurring.
MARBLELIFE® has developed a special sealant that can be applied to stained grout following appropriate cleaning and stain removal preparations. In fact, we can even change the grout color.
