There is a feeling that comes when you walk into a fine hotel or resort.  It’s that sense of luxury that starts with high quality building materials and design elements when you walk onto the property, through the lobby and then into your room. 

If you look on the shelf in your local home improvement store or ask a contractor you will most like get one of two answers:  Impregnating Sealer or Penetrating  Sealer. 

If you’ve had a natural stone countertop or floor installed, you probably asked the contractor or salesperson how you should clean it.  The answer:  use a pH neutral cleaner.  But, what is that and what does that mean?

If you are considering a granite countertop, you are in good company.  Over 7.2 million granite counters cover the counters across the US.  Why is that?

The short answer:  To take advantage of a loophole in federal regulations.

Sealers that can only be purchased in quart size or smaller are solvent-based impregnating (or penetrating) sealers.  To deeply penetrate the surface, a solvent is needed to push the sealant below the surface.
