Terra Glaze terrazzo sealer

by Jim
(Kalkaska, MI)

I am preparing to install marble floor tiles that will be laid alongside ceramic tiles.


I was thinking of sealing the marble BEFORE installation since it is in a small bathroom of less than 50 sq.ft. and it would be really easy to coat them as single tiles.

My reason for thinking this is that by being sealed before laying the marble, I would have less chance of headaches when cleaning the surface after grouting the floor, in hopes that the haze would be easier to remove; plus sealing the ceramic would likely be a waste of effort.

Does this sound goofy?

The reason I am mixing the two types of tiles is that I have leftovers from other projects and wanted to use them up since they look really great together as luck would have it.

This is just for a bathroom in my shop.

Thanks,

Jim




Jim,

I think this is common practice when installing really porous natural stone, but not so common when the stone is polished.

It's such a small area that you can do it both before and after.

Doing it after insures the grout will be sealed too.

Should be fine either way.

Good luck!

Pedro
