Learn about how we can protect your stone, tile and grout, and the many cutting edge products we offer.
Most natural stone is porous and some are sensitive to etching. For porous stone you want to fill those tiny holes to protect it from staining agents being able to penetrate. For acid sensitive stone, you may require a protective barrier between not only staining agents, but acidic substances and your stone. Clay tiles and pavers require other types of sealers, and grout requires a different kind of sealer to inhibit stains.
A good quality impregnating sealer gives you time to clean up spills before they become stains…
The primary job of an impregnating sealer is to fill in the tiny pores in natural stone to inhibit staining agents from being able to leave a stain on your natural stone surfaces. We are an authorized applicator for DryTreat Sealers, a scientifically advanced sealer that leaves other sealers in the dust.
The special penetrating sealer molecules in Dry-Treat are hundreds of times smaller than competitor stone sealers and penetrate much deeper into the pore structure, even dense natural stones like granite. Inside the pores the special sealing molecules bond permanently by chemical reactions, creating a substantial, deep oil and water-repellent barrier.
The deeper Dry-Treat barrier not only provides great surface stain protection, but also protection against more serious common types of damage caused by water ingress (penetration), including efflorescence, salt spalling, freeze-thaw spalling, and picture framing.
Our sealer is safe for use on food preparation surfaces and not sensitive to most common household acidic substances. The result is semi-permanent and provides optimum sealing capabilities protecting against oil and water based staining agents.
Color enhancing sealers are also impregnating sealers, but they are designed to bring out the color in certain natural stones while offering excellent protection. If you like the color of your slate, travertine, flagstone, etc. when it gets wet, then enhancing sealer is the option for you.
Important Note: Impregnating stone sealers cannot prevent etching. Impregnating sealers penetrate beneath the surface of the stone to fill the tiny pores.
For acid-sensitive stone counters, bar tops, table tops, etc. (e.g. marble, onyx, travertine) we offer state-of-the-art solutions to protect the stone from etching as well as protecting from stains.

MORE™ Anti-Etch™ adds a new level of protection against stains and etches from acidic substances such as fruit juices and wine, improper cleaners such as bleach, cosmetics, and other substances.
MORE™ Anti-Etch™ is a durable, attractive coating applied to marble, limestone, travertine, onyx, and concrete. It is especially ideal on countertops, conference tables and desks, bar tops, and other surfaces that see a lot of traffic and use. It can prevent premature wear of your stone so that you can avoid hefty restoration costs.
Coasters, placemats, table runners, liners, and the like are noticeable and often unwelcome solutions for stone protection. While they may keep your tops in decent condition, they also cover the beauty and elegance of the natural stone. MORE™ Anti-Etch™ is very unobtrusive, enhancing the appearance of your stone.
Sealers must be continually reapplied and only provide minimal protection against acidic substances — they basically only buy you some time to quickly wipe up the spill. But what if you don’t notice the spill or don’t have time to immediately attend to it? MORE™ Anti-Etch™ eliminates the need for sealing your stone, because it puts a barrier between your stone and acidic substances. MORE™ Anti-Etch™ is great for residential stone protection, but especially ideal for commercial applications in restaurants, wineries, hotel vanities, and more.
StoneGuard® is a revolutionary natural stone and quartz protective coating that takes the worry out of etching, staining, scratching, and UV damage on natural stone or quartz surfaces.
StoneGuard® has 2 patented nano-tech coatings that when properly applied by a certified professional like Beyond Stone Solutions, protects against etching and other damage for 15 years. It also erases the need for periodic stone sealing.
StoneGuard® Clear is designed to be applied to highly polished natural stone surfaces. It is stain proof, etch proof, and is a UV blocking coating that protects your high polish shine while allowing your stone surfaces to breathe. It can be applied to new and existing natural stone surfaces.
StoneGuard® Satin is designed to be applied to natural stone and quartz surfaces that have a honed or satin finish. Instead of drying to a high shine finish, StoneGuard® Satin dries to a satin, honed sheen that protects and enhances your natural stone or quartz honed finish. It is stain proof, etch proof, and is a UV blocking coating that protects your natural stone and quartz surfaces from UV damage. Like StoneGuard® Clear, it protects while allowing the stone to breathe and it can be used on both new and existing surfaces.
Regular stone sealers only inhibit staining, giving you more time to wipe up the spill. They don’t prevent it and they do nothing to prevent etching or UV damage. StoneGuard® is a natural stone and quartz protectant that addresses all of these issues and makes owning natural stone surfaces almost worry free.
Grout Color Sealing is a Game Changer! Watch the video to learn more.
If your grout has permanent stains or a blotchy appearance due to improper installation, grout color sealing may be the solution you are looking for. With our grout color sealing services, we can match your existing color, or we can change the color of your grout to any color you want and give your floors a completely different look. Plus, color sealing actually prevents staining, a very common grout problem.
With constant-acting mildewcides and fungicides, your grout stays cleaner and healthier than unsealed or clear sealed grout.
In addition to sealing stone and tile, at Beyond Stone Solutions we also restore tile floors, repair granite countertops, install shower and bathroom tile, headstone restoration, and install stone pavers and features in outdoor hardscapes. After cleaning, restoration, media blasting, or installation of stone and tile we have a variety of treatments that can protect your investment and reduce maintenance, such as anti-slip treatments for showers and pool surrounds, sealants for granite.
