sealing flagstone

Postby gregg » Fri 22 Aug, 2008 11:08

Just built an inground saltwater pool with flagstone coping. Need to seal the flagstone because its shedding on some stones and I want to protect it. I have two sealer choices. One a siloxane type penetrating sealer that wont change appearance and a acrylic, breathable solvent based sealer that will darken it up.
The acrylic is called Everclear by Euclid and the other is CP-500W by by CPI.
Any recommendations on which to go with? Thanks

Hi Greg,

We're building a pool and are going to use three rivers flagstone right the way down to the waterline.

How does flagstone hold up?, do you get much flaking and iron leaching out?

Which sealer did you use in the end up using and how did it effect the look?

Thanks,

Steve.
