High-quality penetrating sealers are oil and water repellents, which means they help protect natural stone like marble and granite from oil and water damage. They will not stop acidic liquids like wine and vinegar from etching your stone, however. We at Santa Barbara Stone Masters are accredited applicators of Dry Treat Surface Protect! When applied by an accredited applicator like us, Dry Treat sealers will give your stone water and oil repellency for up to twenty-five years, oftentimes with a warranty!

Got saltillo tile, terra cotta, or something similar? You’ll want a topical sealer. The material composition of clay-based tile is very different from natural stone, so it is critical to use the right kind of sealer for the job. A great topical sealer will protect your tile and enhance its glazed finish.
