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 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..

      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.

        Thank you so much for your prompt response.. Does this need to be sprayed or use a roller brush? Do I need to hire a professional or can this be done as DYI project? Thanks.

    I have a saltwater pool and I’m looking to seal the travertine coping and deck to protect if from the saltwater. What sealer would you recommend that will not leave a shiny/wet look, and will also not be too slippery?

    Need an impregnating, non-gloss sealer for travertine tiles on my patio. I’d like to prevent cracking from the cold weather elements. Which sealant can I use that won’t make tiles slippery when wet, help prevent stains, mold and cracks? TIA

    We have cleaned the pool area travertine pavers and need to seal them. We want a non-gloss finish that will not be slippery and will also not make the pavers hot. What do you recommend? Thanks so much.

    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??

      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,

      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?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          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.

    My outdoor bar top had a sealer applied a few years ago. As you can see the sealer is flaking
    and can be scratched off. Is there a product I can used to remove this before resealing?
    Also what sealer would you recommend. This bar is in Arizona and is exposed to hot sunlight.
    Thanks for your input!,

    Will this also work on tumbled travertine around my pool? Should I also add a grip additive so its not slippery ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Brick Paver Sealer · 03/11/2020
      Yes, it will work for this. Adding a grip is up to you but not always needed.

    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.

        Max · 05/09/2019
        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?

    If you use an acrylic based sealer will they be slippery when wet. My travertine is on the pool deck,
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Brick Paver Sealer · 08/15/2018
      Typically no but this would depend on how many coats have been applied and the porosity of the travertine.

    Depend on the brand but 70-90 is usually okay.
