Why is Natural Stone Popular for Patios?
Natural stone is a popular and timeless choice for homeowners building decks, patios, driveways, waterfalls, and pool copings. Indoor stone tile is also a very popular flooring choice. Unlike wooden decks and patios that require staining and painting to dress them up, natural stone’s character in itself is beautiful. Tiles made of rock help create an aesthetically pleasing outdoor oasis, accentuating diverse design styles.
Often homeowners choose natural stone because they know it will last. Also, stone tiles for pools and patios are not a trendy design element that will go out of style any time soon. Sandstone, flagstone, marble, and travertine have been used in architectural design for millennia and are still some of the most popular building materials for homes today. Stone tiles are also used indoors as timeless, hardy design elements. Stone porches and sun decks are also popular, but they need to be protected.
Seal stone decking and stone porch with a heavy duty sealant that allows the stone to breathe, but inhibits the absorption of moisture, oil, and harsh chemicals. Other popular uses for outdoor stone include fire pits, outdoor kitchens, porch columns, outdoor fireplaces, and fountains.
Pavers are also a prevalent choice for outdoor patio and deck designs. Although sometimes called paver stone, pavers are actually a combination of cement and concrete mixed with coloring. Pavers are a popular choice for outdoor flooring like driveways and patios because they are more affordable than natural stone and very durable. However, even concrete pavers need to be cleaned and sealed periodically to maintain their color and prevent damage. That’s where we come in; we clean and seal stone patios, fireplaces, fire pits, decks, tile, and driveways everyday.
Why Natural Stone Tiles are Vulnerable
Although stone like limestone, slate, travertine, flagstone, and sandstone are indeed “in their element” outdoors so to speak, each type requires special care to ensure its natural beauty is preserved. While these types of stone are harvested from the great outdoors, they are typically either mined from their underground homes and natural habitats that provided ideal conditions for their preservation. When taken out of these conditions and subjected to harsher environments, certain types of stone can sustain damage and staining. Stone used outdoors for patios, waterfalls, and decks is exposed to the elements, leaving it vulnerable to mold and mildew growth, calcification, calcium efflorescence, staining, and spalling. We have several TSS PRO sealants available, call us to see which one would work best for the type of stone you have.
Stone used to accent pool copings takes an especially rough beating. Although stone used in decks and patios is exposed to extreme environmental conditions in the Texas heat and cold, stone tiles used in pool copings are also at the mercy of harsh chemicals like chlorine and saltwater. We highly recommend sealing patios, pool copings, and even indoor stone for longevity. While it’s important to seal outdoor stone patios, protecting indoor stone flooring is also important; clean and seal stone tile and grout every few years to keep it looking its best.
Stone damaged by saltwater or chlorine requires special attention to keep it healthy. Our sealant allows the stone to breathe while simultaneously protecting it from the caustic chemicals and saltwater from pools.
