You don’t need to seal your bluestone tiles and pavers. However, it is highly recommended…
Bluestone (like all natural stone) is porous. This means that if you leave moisture on top like water or wine it will absorb it unless you wipe it up immediately.
For peace of mind, we always recommend sealing bluestone. As a result, you can be confident your bluestone will look pristine forever in your home.
You only really need to do it once after your tiler has laid the pavers. Some customers choose to give their bluestone tiles a recoat every 5 years.
To work out if your bluestone pavers and tiles need sealer, simply put some water on top. If it forms into water beads, then it doesn’t need sealing. If after a few moments the pavers have absorbed the water, then they need sealing.
At Bluestone Tiles Warehouse, we have natural stone tile sealers. Also, we stock an invisible tile sealer and an enhancing tile sealer (if you want to enhance the colour of the paving). They come in a variety of sizes to suit the area you require.
