A Stone Sealing Service in Plano, TX, Enhanced the Look of This Flagstone Driveway
November 24, 2016
Flagstone gives an elegant look to any home thanks to its distinctive appearance. Flagstone is a beautiful sedimentary rock that is composed of many layers, and it is frequently used for paving driveways. The only problem with flagstone driveways is that exposure to the sun, rain, and other weather conditions can deteriorate the stone and make the colors fade over time. Since flagstone is a layered, natural rock, it must be protected from UV rays and water to prevent discoloration or any other deterioration of the surface of the stone. This was exactly this homeowner's problem. After years exposed to extreme weather conditions and traffic, the wonderful colors of the stone driveway seemed to have faded, leaving it with a dull and unattractive look.
Our customer was frustrated; he had no idea how to restore his wonderful flagstone driveway and replacing the stone was just not an option at that time. He talked to a co-worker about the situation, who suggested to look for a professional Plano stone sealing
company on the Internet. The homeowner wanted to solve the problem right away, so he went online and one of the first options he found was Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth. The homeowner contacted us for a free evaluation.
When our team arrived at the customer's house, they first evaluated the stone driveway's condition and communicated the results to the homeowner. Then, they designed a plan of action to restore the flagstone's appearance; they would need to power wash it and then seal it to protect it against future damage. Our customer was pleased with the plan and decided to hire us right away.
Our professionals began by power washing the stone to make it as clean as possible. After the stone was completely clean, they let it dry to ensure proper absorption and adhesion of the sealer. Once the stone was dry, they applied our color enhancing sealer. Our color enhancing sealer darkens, highlights, and enhances the beauty of natural stone. It is also UV-resistant and provides maximum protection against oil- and water-based stains.
When the job was finished, the colors of the flagstone driveway were enhanced. It looked like never before. The team proceeded to show the driveway to the homeowner. He was surprised to see the natural colors of his flagstone shining through. It even looked better than it did when it was first installed. He was so happy to have recovered his flagstone's beauty that he thanked the team and took pictures to send them to his friends on Instagram and Twitter.
As the last step, the team gave our client some easy-to-follow recommendations to maintain his flagstone in optimal condition. Maintaining flagstone is relatively easy. You must sweep it on a regular basis, and you must remove the moss, weeds, or algae that may grow between the cuts of the stone. It is also good to clean the stone periodically using only stone-safe and pH-neutral products. A flagstone driveway can last a lifetime when given proper maintenance.
