Question & Answers

I used this on 2" bathroom ceramic floor tile and grout last Fall. The tile and grout look good but my husband wants to reseal it. Can I just go over it with this again or do I have to take previous sealer off first?

Mary,

Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.

You need to ensure the surface is clean and dry for at least 24 hours prior to applying an additional coat of sealer. There are no additional steps.

what works best for saltillo don't want it shiny?

Thank you for contacting Contractors Direct.

This product is supposed to dry with a "no sheen" look. It is recommended to test on a small, discreet area first prior to applying to the entire floor.

easy to apply

very easy to apply. works good with marble and I used a brush to apply it. does not change the look of the finished product. sometimes sealers change the color and ruin the look
