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 about 1000 sqft. travertine patio, love the natural look with no shine/gloss and I want it non-slip. Which sealer do you recommend  SB-600 or SB-350 for Indiana. Also   what  is    the  difference  between  SB-600 or SB-350

    To protect travertine against water AND staining is Masonry Saver or Superseal M sufficient or should I use something like Surebond SB 5000 which is advertised as "stain-blocking?" I ask because there is a big difference in price for the Surebond product.

    Does sealing cause the travertine to retain more heat. In Florida so don't want to increase the heat.

    My grouted travertine around pool was sealed 2 years ago.  It is dull now.  It was a water based sealer.  Can it be resealed now?

    We are going to pressure clean our pavers with bleach. we want to know what is the best travertine sealer to use that will look shiny and bring out the natural color of the travertine. Also, 1 or 2 coats and how long before sealing in the future. Thanks

    I have just finished installing travertine and pavers. We are in the Las Vegas, NV area and obvious UV deterioration and heat are of great concern.

    What sealer product do you recommend.

    Hello, I believe I have been using Super Seal 25 for my travertine pool deck and driveway. Wanted to know if this is the best product to use for South Florida sun/element exposure? Is there a water based product that might be better?

      Sorry, we did not see this message prior. There is not a better product than the SS25.

    Is it OK to put a oil base sealer on travertine around the pool if I put an anti-slip agent to the sealer?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Brick Paver Sealer · 03/31/2022
      Yes, as long as the sealer you choose allows an anti-slip to work in it.

    Hi! We just built a pool and did travertine a whitish cream beige color. It’s already darkened which I don’t like :( we think it looks better with it wet but we don’t want to be slipping everywhere. Would I do a semi gloss or gloss and add in a tack mix to keep from being so slippery?

    We live in central Florida.  We have a new salt water pool with travertine decking.  What product should we use to protect from salt corrosion, weed and mildew?  We also want to enhance the natural color.  Thanks!

    Our travertine pavers have not been resealed in years. We are from phoenix az....now in the 80s (summers are avg. 110). Is now a good time to reseal? Would like wet look but natural look...not too glossy. Some pavers pitted and deteriorating. What product? The pavers are played, not cemented in and no "grout"  so should we fill with crushed granite  then sweep off prior to reseal?  Should we seal the faux rock fireplace? Using what product?

      Try Supreme Shield SB-600. Do not seal the fireplace. No need to add more crushed granite.

    Hello, I live in south fla and my pool deck is travertine which has been previously sealed with a solvent based sealer.  I also have an east - west exposure which is extremely UV high and hot.  I see from other posts you recommend the SB-600, and I am looking for that wet look along with UV protection.  Assuming you will again prefer the SB-600 should I remove the solvent based sealer that exists or apply the SB-600 over it?

    We used superseal-M on our travertine tiles on pool deck 2 years ago.  We are hoping for something with more of a gloss this time, that will show off the color of the travertine.  Will Super Seal 25 be slippery on a salt water pool deck? Or are we better off with super shield sb600?  We live in Florida, and also prefer low VOC.

    Just laid travertine pavers for a patio in Minnesota, 450sf, what's best sealant for freeze/thaw? Want them to keep their natural look but ideally without chalkiness as they now have. They do look better when they're a little damp, I wouldn't be opposed to a wet look but subtle, nothing over the top. Thanks in advance.

    We are just finishing up installing 2k SF of Travertine pavers and pool coping on our pool in Orange County CA.  It will be a saltwater pool.  We get a lot of direct sun all day.  I would like the best penetrating sealer to keep the travertine from staining and deteriorating over time.  What would be my best choice?  And should i roller it on or spray it on?

      No sealer can prevent leaf stains. It will make cleaning easier.

    Had travertine pool deck installed in South Florida and the installer used a sealer with sand in it for grip. Absolutely cannot stand the texture plus the sealer seems to be wearing rather quickly and have dull spots all around. How quickly can I expect a sealer to wear? I believe they only did 1 coat because we have a lot of dull spots already and it has only been 5 months. Would pressure washing remove existing sealer? Whatever they used was horrible and looks horrible!!

    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.
