An important process for all exterior stone for its protection through the harsh winter conditions. Sun, salt, snow and rain have adverse effects on natural stone. The best way to protect the stone is to impregnate the surface with a penetrating sealer, colour enhanced or regular. The purpose is to seal all the microscopic pores, preventing the environmental conditions from seeping into the stone, thereby extending the life of the stone.
