Here at Miles Stone we believe in providing the finest services to our customers, that’s why we have introduced our new pre-sealing service. Pre-sealing is something that has been on the market for a while and is often something that divides opinion, however we believe that this service is extremely beneficial to the longevity of your patio and is a perfect way for us to help you create your dream landscape.
Here are some of the advantages of pre-sealing stone with us;
- Stain-Proofing– Although your Miles Stone paving will still dirty over time, no stain will become permanent. This means that none of the usual things, such as, red wine, grass stains, grease etc. will become a permanent blight on your patio.
- Speed-During the more frustrating winter months when the rain, snow etc can prevent the stone from becoming bone dry (necessary for sealing) we can guarantee that your pre-sealed stone will be with you within 7 days. This is due to our state of the art indoor facilities that guarantee year-round quality and efficiency from our service. Your paving can be supplied pre-sealed whatever the weather.
- Peace of Mind– When you choose to pre-seal stone with us you get the piece of mind that each piece of paving has been checked, cleaned and sealed. Meaning that any rogue pieces of stone that have been missed by our already stringent quality controls is removed, ensuring every single piece you receive is ready to be laid.
- Knowledge– Although pre-sealing is a new service for us, we have been working with natural stone for over 40 years and have been involved in the sealing of both external and internal projects for decades. Our customers have often requested our assistance with stone sealing and we therefore decided to offer this service to meet the needs of our clients.
Why should I seal my natural stone?
Part of selecting a natural material is that its always going to be porous, some more than others, such as our sawn sandstone range. Although pre-sealing isn’t going to prevent your surface from becoming dirty, as mentioned before, it will prevent any of those marks becoming permanent. As well as the prevention of staining it also makes your paving much easier to maintain, with the moisture literally running off the surface- taking most of any dirt away with it. As well as preventing anything penetrating the stone it will also stop anything coming back up from the lower portion of the slab, especially efflorescence which can temporarily ruin the look of some paving options.
Why do you recommend sealing all sawn products?
All natural stone is porous, however with a sawn product you have literally opened the surface up, making the pores even more exposed. This shouldn’t put you off using a sawn product as they are the perfect way of creating a clean contemporary scheme, and with our pre-sealing service they are still cheaper than using a porcelain alternative.
