If it doesn't bead than place some water on the stone and let it sit for a minute. Than wipe it off and show it hasn't soaked in. You can carry a piece of stone that is not sealed to show them the difference.

Hi Everyone!


We have a question. Is there a way you guys have found to explain to a homeowner in easy terms for them to understand that a surface is sealed and still being protected? We can show it beads up water, but in some exterior areas (in AZ) it doesn’t bead after a few months. Isn’t the seal still protecting the stone even if the repellency factor has reduced?






Thank you, we appreciate your business!
