    Sealers and water repellants have been used with great success on stone for a long time. However, working in limestone like I do, there have been increasing cases of stained and flaking stone where the owner just applies a sealer without any consultation, and causes more damage to the stone. I would like to warn owners about sealers and try to get them to contact manufacturers before doing any application. I would hope that this will help owners to apply the correct product or no product at all if that is indicated.
