Protect your investment in stone and tiles with Slique’s Tile Sealing and Protective Coatings
Tiles and stone are premium flooring materials, providing a certain level of prestige and commanding a premium price. Why not protect that investment? Tile Sealing and Protective Coatings will provide different levels of protection, making sure the surface has a long life looking as good as possible.
Tile Sealing and Coating Services include:
Tile Sealing protects textured or polished porcelain tiles against staining and makes the tiles much easier to keep clean. Our Tile Sealing services are invisible, so the appearance of the surface or slip coefficient won’t change, however the level of protection will keep the tiles looking great. Your Tile Sealing service will be tailored to your surface type along with where it’s located, to make sure you have the best level of protection for your needs.

Stone Sealing is quite specialised, as different types of stone will require different types of stone sealer. Porous stone externally such as sandstone and limestone need a water-repellent stone sealer to reduce mould growth, while stone in kitchens or around eating areas should be treated with a grease- and oil-repellent stone sealer for best levels of protection. Read our Stone Sealing page to find out more about the choices available, or book a free quote and we’ll explain the best option to you.
There are two options of Grout Sealing available:
>> Invisible Grout Sealing
Even if the tiles are impervious, the grout isn’t! Grout is usually made up of sand and cement so it’s extremely porous, absorbing water and stains easily. Grout is also very hard to clean effectively. Grout Sealing solves all these problems by applying a special grout sealer to make the grout water-repellent. It won’t change the look of the grout, so before application we’ll clean the grout to make sure it’s pristine before being protected.
>> Grout Colouring
Don’t like the look of your grout anymore? No problem – we can change it! Grout Colouring involves painting over your existing grout with the colour of your choice. Re-apply your existing colour, or choose something different to completely change the look of your tiles. And Grout Colouring also has the added benefit of making the grout completely waterproof.
Wet Look Sealer application
Wet Look Sealers provide excellent sealing protection while also darkening the surface colour. Usually the colour is darkened by 2-3 shades, giving it a permanent “wet look” (hence the name Wet Look Sealer). Wet Look Sealers can be applied for protection, or for aesthetics, or both.

Stone Coating services involve applying a special stone coating to the surface, providing a sacrificial layer on top of the stone. This means that wear, spills, stains and scratches will all affect the stone coating, rather than the stone itself. Stone Coatings are available in many different finishes, from virtually invisible, matt, semi-gloss, right through to high gloss finishes. The majority of the stone coating systems provided by Slique are also fully maintainable, meaning you’ll be able to keep up your desired level of shine.
