Natural_Stone Classic Beauty in Ruins . . . But Not the Natural Stone in Your HomeThe Rievaulx Abbey was built in a secluded valley on the edge of the North York Moors in northern England in 1131. It is a classic example of the timeless beauty of natural stone. However, if the monks could have used Pre-Seal prior to the actual construction, it would have held up much better for the past thousand or so years.

Now that we have your attention, the point is that today homeowners are attracted to the look and feel of natural stone products but are reluctant to use them because of the natural stone maintenance required. Pre Seal is a service offered exclusively by D&B Tile Distributors in South Florida as a way to protect your investment and minimize maintenance of natural stone and marble products.

Nothing could have protected these beautiful ruins from a thousand years of wind, weather and dirt. However, one dropped glass of wine on your unprotected natural stone or marble floor will leave you with years of regret as to why you did not seal the stone before installation. Natural stone and marble has a classic look and feel to it. Now, with the help of Pre-Seal, you can enjoy it without fear of living with a household accident for years to come.

Pre Seal is a process that can only be applied BEFORE installation. It will protect your stone and marble from dirt and grime during installation and for years after it has been installed. Although other sealing can be applied after installation, it is normally done by unskilled workers and is less effective.

Unlike porcelain tile, natural stone is susceptible to stains and absorbing dirt and grease especially during construction. Without Pre Seal, a careless footprint can become a major problem. Pre-Sealing your natural stone will give you additional protection that will add years to the enjoyment of your stone and add value to your home.

In fact, the sealing products used in the stone industry are 11 impregnators 11 which do not actually seal the stone, but more correctly act as a repellent rather than a sealer. Sealing does not make the stone stain proof, rather it makes the stone more stain resistant. When consulting with your stone supplier, you may find that many stones do not require sealing. However, applying an impregnating sealer is a common practice.

D&B Tile recommends that all marble and stone should be sealed with two coats. Our exclusive Pre Seal is the first of two coats. This process is done by D&B Tile prior to shipping the stone or marble to the jobsite. With Pre Seal, customers can now select natural stone and marble for their home or commercial needs and know that the process will add years to the enjoyment of their investment and greatly reduce the time and cost of maintenance throughout its lifetime.

Protect your investment by using Pre Seal on all your natural stone and marble. The service is available at a minimal cost through all nine locations of D&B Tile Distributors and authorized dealers in south Florida.
