Travertine Paver SealerHow to Seal Travertine Pavers

A beautiful hardscape can be created using travertine pavers. There are many exterior uses for these types of pavers like driveways, sidewalks, pool decks, patios, and more. Sealing travertine pavers can help enhance their beauty and prolong their longevity.

Before you seal travertine pavers, they need to be cleaned. Use a mild detergent to remove any moderate dirt buildup and contaminants with a brush or pressure washer. Perform spot cleaning on specific stains if necessary using the appropriate cleaner such as a degreaser on oil spots, a rust remover on rust stains, and so on.

 

Allow the travertine pavers to dry for a day or more before sealing. To seal travertine pavers, use a water repellent siloxane-based sealer like Masonry Saver Heavy Duty or SuperSeal M. This will help the pavers to resistant moisture and UV rays and keep them from weathering. You can also use an acrylic based sealer like SuperSeal 25 to enhance the paver’s color similar as to if wet with water and give a shiny finish.

Before sealing, check the weather to be sure it is clear of rain and extreme temperatures. It is best to apply the sealer using a roller or pump sprayer. A good metal contractor grade pump sprayer is ideal. Use plastic to block of any surface you do not want sealer on.

Start in one corner of the area to be sealed and work in sections spraying just enough sealer to cover the surface. After spraying a section, you can use a roller to spread the sealer for a more even application. Complete the process until all the travertine pavers are sealed.

Regular sealing maintenance should be performed on travertine pavers every 1-3 years or as needed. Protecting your hardscape travertine paver investment is a wise decision that will ensure the pavers last for many years of use and continue adding value to your home.

    I noticed you recommended:  SB-600: https://www.brickpaversealer.com/wet-look/no-gloss for a travertine outdoor pool deck in a previous comment.  Yet when I clicked on the link, it showed up as: SUPREME SHIELD SB-600 WET LOOK CONCRETE SEALER.  It says it is for "concrete".  So the dumb question here is, can I still use it on the outdoor travertine pool decking? We are in Houston, like Florida, it's very hot and humid.  We have about 2K SF to cover. Thank you very much.

        Haven't applied it yet due to the consistent rain.  Hopefully next month.

    We are a condo in south east Florida with about a 10,000 sf travertine pool deck that we want to reseal. we want a more long lasting sealant (current sealant is failing after about 2 years). Any recommended products would be of interest to us. Thanks. Gary for the Building and Grounds Committee Barr Terrace Condo Assoc.

    I have travertine pavers around my pool and abutting them is smoother type of travertine. Can I use the siloxane base sealer using the same application?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Brick Paver Sealer · 12/03/2020
      It may not penetrate the smoother surface. You would have to test to be certain.

    I have about 1200 sqft. travertine(Scabos) paver on the patio for the last 3 years. They are not sealed. It looks very nice and when you wet the tile the colors are incredible. So I wanted to seal the tiles to preserve the look but I really do not want any harsh chemicals. We do lot of gardening all around and kids playing all the time. Is there such low VOC or safe sealant? I am concerned of letting kids play on it after they are sealed with harsh chemicals. Please advice

    I would like to seal my travertine pool deck (approx 1,000 sq.ft.. I ) love the natural look with no shine/gloss and I want it non-slip. Which sealer do you recommend, Super Seal M? Do I need an anti-slip additive? How many gallons do I need? Thank you..
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Brick Paver Sealer · 10/17/2020
      Super Seal-M is the correct choice. About 5-gallons. You cannot use an anti-slip with a penetrating sealer. No need.

    Getting ready to reseal our travertine (was installed and sealed over 5 years ago) and like the natural look, not shiny. However, after cleaning we still have stains from acorns. and leaves from a Water Oak. What do you recommend to remove the stains prior to sealing? Also, what is the best sealant for the most matte, natural look?

    We recently had our Association pool pavers ( Travertine ) sealed. The vendor reportedly put down ( sprayed and rolled ) 2 coats of Cobble Loc. People falling down and very slippery. Vendor came back and put down Shark Grip in a light 3rd Coat of Sealer. The Travertine is
    still slippery. Should we strip off a coat or two or take it down and start again??

      Brick Paver Sealer · 08/17/2020
      You would have to strip all. It is not possible to just remove a coat or two.

    I just had travertine pavers put in around the pool of my S. Florida home. I do not want a gloss or shiny finish but would like to protect the natural look of the pavers. What do you recommend as a protection from stains and moisture but will keep the look and maintain it non slippery? Advice is greatly appreciated.

    Just had outdoor Travertine sealed with the "Wet Look". Looks Great. 1st day I dragged a pot across it and put scratches for about 10' into the sealant. I called the company 3x to have them repair it (at my cost) but they will not respond. Do I buy the SuperSeal 25 and dab it on the scratches to fill them in? Any Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks,

      Brick Paver Sealer · 06/11/2020
      You could try that but it may end up being shinier in those spots. There is not an easy way to spot fix.

        JM · 06/11/2020
        I don't mind if it's a little shinier - just want the scratches to disappear. Will it make the scratches disappear? They also missed an area that you can see is dull. If I buy the SuperSeal 25 will that help seal the spots they missed and blend with the rest of it? They told us if we needed repairs in the future to buy a sealant on Amazon for "Outdoor Travertine - Wet Look" and it would be fine. But when I searched on Amazon every review was bad for the "Wet Look" products and they were all for pavers not necessarily Travertine. We are trying to find a product that actually works. Thanks,

    Is this sealant non slip when wet? My travertine tiles are a bit slippery around my pool deck when wet and I need a non- slip sealant.

      Add the Super Grip into the sealer for traction.

        I had the sealant already applied but they didnt add the grip so its a bit slippery when wet. What can I do now to add a thin layer over the sealant and still keep the shine. Is the grip very sandy or are there other products that can be used?

          Brick Paver Sealer · 05/17/2020
          You can add one coat of the sealer with a grip in it. It has a slight texture to it.
