I have a Sand Stone chimney that appears to be leaking into my home not through the roof but through the stone and or mortar joints. The chimney is 30 years old. What product do you recommend to correct this problem? How often should I re-apply after the initial application? Is it better to spray or roll it on? Thank you!
Any of the Ghost Shield Siloxa-Tek lines would work for sealing sandstone. My go to is the Siloxa-Tek 8510 as it provides the longest protection. I would reccomend two coats, wet on wet, and you shouldnt have to touch it for 10 years.
Roll or spray is a matter of preference, but for a vertical application, we prefer rolling as you have lest waste.
Do you accept tax exempt certificates?
Yes we do.
Do you have the primer for a concrete kitchen counter. ?
Ghostshield doesnt make a countertop primer, however they do make a few different countertop specific sealers. Check out the countertop specific products here:
Can this product be used for a fountain and can it be brushed on. Thank You
For a fountain, we would recommend Siloxa-Tek 8510. It can be applied with a brush, roller or sprayer.
What is the best method to apply this product?
We generally prefer a roller application as it allows for a more even distribution of product. For this product, you would want to use a 3/8" nap roller and apply until the surface is saturated. If applying two coats, make sure to use a wet on wet application.
Will this help on patios that sweat due to no water barrier laid
Absolutely. For an exterior patio I would recommend Siloxa-Tek 8510
Average coverage of one gallon of Siloxa-Tex 8500?
This is a product where two coats are needed, so a gallon would cover 250 square feet, once. You would need two gallons to cover 250 sq ft per manufacturer's reccomendations.
