Last week I took a look at an outdoor covered patio that was originally comprised of very smooth tiles, but over the winter the tiles have seriously degraded. I was told by the owners that this happened over this last winter particularly but not before. In any event, much of the surface has been worn away and some areas have lost larger chunks. The owners are aware that there is not much that can be done to bring back the original finish, but would at least like to see if there is anything that can be applied that might stop or slow down further degradation. I told them that I wouldn't encourage using a topical sealant, but that there may be a consolidant that might help. That being said, I talked to the people at Richard James and they suggested either Stonelok MLT or TK6 Nanocoat. Does anyone have any other ideas on what might be used to slow the stone from wearing away? I am surprised that stone degraded so quickly. It is exposed but covered by a canvas cover. This last winter was very mild but rainy. For some reason the tiles along the edges have retained much of the original smooth finish. Thanks,
