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 have a huge travertine pool deck and am constantly fighting weeds growing between the pavers. What would you suggest to combat this?

    I currently get tire marks all over my travertine paver driveway would a shiny finish help keep the tire marks from happening?

      A sealer of any sort cannot stop tire marks from appearing on top of the surface.

        We had a water based sealer put on and it made the tire marks worse actually. So we are looking to strip it and add a different sealer if you have a recommendation

    Will a sealer penetrate my pool deck travertine and prevent rain water from passing through and leaking into the garage below?

      Typically no but this would depend on how many coats have been applied and the porosity of the travertine.
