The One-Stop Shop Stone Sealing Company

Stone sealing isn’t quite as easy as the words may make it sound. Some Texas stone sealers may just explain it as pouring a bit of gunk over your rocks to make them all shiny.

Unfortunately, that’s just surface layer thinking (pardon the pun). In reality, proper stone sealing first requires the evaluation of the work area, followed by cleaning, and then either polishing or honing of the installation to meet each customer’s individual needs. ATX Stone Sealers has been doing this for years and can take your stone’s appearance to the next level! 

Making an investment in your property, whether you own a company or are just looking to increase the value of your home is always a smart idea. That’s why our team takes the time to ensure you receive a free estimate before you spend a cent and ensure you receive full service in one go rather than having to hire multiple contractors. 

This one-stop shop approach extends beyond just sealing, cleaning, and polishing however as we have experts on staff who will ensure your Austin home is using the right material for our hot summers and brisk winters. No matter your need, when it comes to improving the look of your properties, we’ve got you covered.

Why Should You Choose ATX Stone Sealers

It’s always difficult to choose a company that will suit your needs, regardless of the project, and ATX Stone Sealers has quite a few areas where we go above and beyond in this field.
Comprehensive Solutions

As mentioned before, we don't just do sealing but also provide stone cleaning, polishing, honing, and lots more when it comes time to complete your next project. Providing all of these services in one go allows us to create custom packages that ensure the job is done correctly the first time and removes the headache of seeking additional contractors for a single project.

Quality Customer Service and Experience

While our field team is trained and ready to perform any job, our office and management team that supports them are experts in their own right. Whether you need consultation on the correct rock to install to keep everything cool during summer or just need to better understand the itemization on your most recent quote, our goal is to provide the best customer service experience you've ever had with a construction or maintenance company.

Professional To a Fault

While we do work with homeowners, we also have many commercial clients who expect more. Our team is trained to work alongside your employees and customers with little to no interruption. This translates to your business being minimally affected as we work, especially if it depends on foot traffic through the area we are servicing. This attention to detail for our commercial clients has turned many of them into repeat customers.

Our Services

Stone Cleaning

Our stone cleaning service provides a deep comprehensive clean to your residential or commercial installations. Over time, natural stone will become stained or discolored as well as accumulate mold, mildew, and even calcium deposits. These not only lower the beauty of your installations but, over time, can cause the material to degrade at a faster rate. To restore these surfaces, our team uses a combination of pressure washing, soda blasting, and some company secrets that leave the stones so clean you could eat off of them! We don’t recommend that though.

Stone Sealing

Stone sealing is the process of applying sealer to stones to prevent future staining and erosion. This is particularly useful when it comes to stone that will be near a high moisture area (such as a pool deck) or just stones that need to retain their looks such as for a business. Stone sealer typically comes in two varieties, glossy and matte. After cleaning and polishing the stone, our team would apply sealing which would fill any pores and cracks and leave a long-lasting and beautiful surface. Sealed stone requires far less heavy cleaning and maintenance, as erosion is slowed down significantly.

Stone Polishing

Over time, materials such as marble and limestone will eventually lose their glow. This occurs most frequently in high foot and vehicle traffic areas where dirt, grime, and other external factors bleed deep into the stone causing the reflective quality of the material to dim. The goal of any good stone polishing service is to restore that shine. Our team uses a variety of tools to refine those crystals embedded in the surface which returns that glow and further enhances it with additional polishing materials making it appear glossy.

Stone Honing

Unlike stone polishing which aims to bring out the glow, stone honing is the procedure used to smooth and flatten stone with very little shine (if any). Stone honing is perfect for businesses that want the look of a smoothed natural stone floor, patio, or porch but don’t want to have the glossy look that occurs with polishing. To achieve this, our team uses industry-standard machines and abrasives to reform the stone into your desired look.

Stone Repair & Restoration

Common issues that occur with stone are chipping, holes, cracks, and of course stains/dulling. Luckily, our repair and restoration services can help fix this homeowners’ nightmare. Repair is often recommended when you notice stone that could become a safety issue for your family or customers. This process will involve us sourcing stone to replace what you have already and fitting it in with the same sealing used before. Restoration on the other hand combines our cleaning service with either our polishing or honing services to restore your stone to where it was before. This type of project can even be done on minor chips and cracks and our team is happy to provide a free estimate to help you decide!

Types of stone

four different granite stone samples
Granite has become a popular choice for natural stone installations due to its stain and heat resistance. While often a bit pricey, these resistances make them very easy to maintain overall. One other downside of granite, while durable, is that it is very prone to cracking or chipping which makes it not the best for areas where heavy objects may fall on it.

Limestone is a beautiful material and a very affordable option compared to other natural stones. This beauty does come with a cost though as it is very prone to scratches when not properly protected. Our customers have found installing it in outdoor areas as well as kitchens or bathrooms produces a truly unique (some may say exotic) aesthetic.

When people think of “high-end living”, marble is always in the conversation. This material comes in a wide variety of colors and grades, is heat-resistant, and looks great whether polished or honed to perfection. The biggest downside to using this type of stone is it is a porous, softer material which makes it very susceptible to the elements if proper sealing is not employed.

Flagstone

Flagstone has become one of the most popular materials for stone patios due to its durability, ease of installation, and heat resistance. This material is also easy to maintain over time making it more cost-effective than some other natural stones you can choose. One disadvantage of Flagstone is while it is generally weather resistant, it has been found to become extremely slippery when wet, making it not the ideal material for any area that is expecting regular moisture.

Travertine is a variation of limestone and is most often used for tiling. This material sports a variety of benefits that include a great look and high durability (when properly treated) as well as typically increasing a home’s value when installed. Perhaps the biggest issue is it stays cool, which is great for Texas weather most of the year, but around wintertime can cause some issues with comfort.

Saltillo tile is a sustainable material derived from saltillo clay. This type of tile is not only environmentally friendly but typically handmade, which in turn makes each square unique and beautiful. Its biggest fault is it is very prone to discoloration and staining, so we recommend sealing immediately after installation.
Close up of green quartzite surface texture
Quartzite, not to be confused with Quartz, is a mined metamorphic rock whose key characteristics are its beautiful and unique veining patterns. These are favorites of homeowners due to their resistance to scratches and heat as well as their awe-inspiring visual appeal. Needless to say, this material often is on the higher end of costs when compared to its alternatives.
Slate texture vinyl flooring a popular choice for modern kitchens and bathrooms
Slate is an expensive stone choice but also one that immediately increases real estate value. It will require sealing from trusted Texas stone sealers, but once done is a very durable material. The biggest benefit of this stone however has to be its aesthetic appeal.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does ATX Stone Sealers offer free estimates?
Whether it’s power washing, adding sealant, or anything in between – we do offer free estimates! We work with both companies and homeowners, so give us a call and we’ll get you set up.
Why do natural stone installations need to be sealed?
Natural stone should be treated to protect from damage over time while maintaining its natural beauty. This is because most, if not all, natural stones have pores. These pores retain and absorb water, bacteria, food, or basically anything else that is dropped on them. When this occurs, the result is usually more damage done to the surface in a far shorter period of time. Sealing protects and prevents this issue.
How long do stone sealants typically last?
According to most Texas stone sealers, including our team, stone sealant typically lasts between two to six years depending on the quality of the sealant, material, and cleaning schedule. We do offer regular maintenance for your stone installations so be sure to ask about our cleaning, sealing, or other services ASAP.
What is the best way to clean stone?
Good question! It’s recommended to use industry-specific stone soap but if you don’t have that, using a solution of 1 cup of dishwashing detergent in 6 cups of warm water (you want to really dilute it) should work well. If our team handles this for you though, we employ power washing (or pressure washing if needed) alongside some company secret cleaning elements to really make those rocks look “good as new”.
Can I use bleach to clean natural stone?
No, and please don’t try! Bleach and other strong, chemical based cleaning products can (and will) strip important elements from your stone installations which leave them structurally compromised. This will lead to needing a full replacement if done over and over and should be avoided at all costs. Leave the cleaning to an expert team of Texas stone sealers (such as ourselves) or only use very diluted soap and water combinations.
When should I replace natural stone?
Generally speaking, replacing stone is not necessarily ever needed unless the stone has become a safety or liability hazard. This is especially important for businesses. Even when the surface has become cracked and has holes in it, restoration is typically still an option you can go for instead. So, in terms of a complete replacement, this is usually only done if the customer wants a complete remodel or just a change in material.
Should I hone my stone floor?

Stone honing, unlike polishing, often removes the reflective quality of the stone while leveling it and improving its longevity. After honing is done, typically a seal is applied which improves its resistance to damage. We recommend honing only if you have areas that are often illuminated and don’t benefit from most material’s reflective qualities. This is perfect for places like restaurants or walkways leading to the house. 

Should I polish my stone floor?
Polishing a stone floor is a great idea if you want a nice glossy look! Both honing and polishing restores the general brightness of a worn-down stone, but polishing techniques affect the surface crystals of the stone which in turn make a more reflective and shiny display. This is great for areas where you want to showcase the luster of your home or give the feel of extravagance even when on the exterior of your property.
