Different Tile Sealers

 In Blog

Depending on what type of tiles are in your Highlands Ranch home, you could be potentially using two different types of sealant. But regardless of whether you are working with ceramic or porcelain tiles, using a sealer is going to be a crucial step in the process. Here is a helpful guide on what the different types of tile sealers are and what exactly the difference is between them.

Surface Sealant

This type of sealant is used as a top layer for the tile and grout. It acts in a similar way to combining oil and water, which allows it to create a separate but flush layer of protective materials between you and the surface of the tile and grout.

Types of Tile to Consider in your home

Surface tile sealer can alter the appearance of any tile.

This top layer is not very porous and happens to be very stain resistant, which helps to reduce the amount of tile cleaning needed. By using this type of sealer, you will be able to really bring out the natural colors of the tile and make it look more beautiful than ever before. Plus, it often even gives a slight amount of luster to the tile as well.

Penetrating Sealant

This type of sealer is much different from the surface sealer. As its name suggests, this product is able to actually be absorbed by the tile and grout in order to provide under-surface protection. Once this penetrating sealant is fully absorbed by the tile and grout, it is able to create a stain-resistant layer that sits just below the surface. Because this layer does not sit on top of the tile, it will not usually affect how it looks in any way. Both of these sealants make your tiles look their best and, almost as importantly, they also make them easy to maintain.

By learning about the differences in these sealants, it helps you choose the right one to use for your tile or grout replacement. That is why you should call The Grout Specialist today at (720) 923 – 8984 or click here to learn more about our tile sealing services.
