It's a product that enhances the color of your stone. It deepens the color of your granite, travertine marble or other natural stone by giving it the wet look.
Use it on granite, travertine marble, limestone... all non polished stone surfaces.
Sometimes a color enhancer can be used on polished surfaces. But, it's quite a bit more noticeable on honed, flamed, leathered, antiqued, tumbled, satin, brushed or rough finishes.
Use it on vertical or horizontal surfaces such as counter tops, back splashes, vanities, showers, fireplaces, and floors.
Use it on rocks and grout.
Use it inside or out.
It lasts longer on interior surfaces than exterior surfaces.
It lasts longer on counter tops & vanities vs. floors.
We applied the color enhancer to a heavily trafficked (residential) interior slate floor. It lasted about 3 years before we reapplied it. You'll notice over time that the deepness of the color fades - nothing drastic.
We also enhanced a few boulders sitting outside. The enhancer has lasted through three Minnesota winters so far. The color has faded but the boulders still don't look as dry and dusty as they did before applying the enhancer.
This depends on how much stone you are enhancing and where it is located
- walls, counters, floors etc.
Typically, an hundred square feet of floors will take about 1 hour.
We tested the the color enhancer on a slate floor. We wanted to see if there was a huge difference in color, if it could camouflage scratches and how long the enhanced look lasted.
We then took a key, scratched the floor and reapplied enhancer on just the scratched tile.
The difference was incredible! The slate went from dusty and drab to deeper and darker. Did The Color Improve? YES! The blacks became a deep charcoal instead of dusty gray - the greens evened out - the reds, rusts and oranges looked fresher and clean. The colors appeared brighter.
It has been 3 years since we applied an enhancer to the slate floor. The color's faded but the slate does not look as dusty as the day it was installed. We recently applied another coat of enhancer and the colors POP once again.
We decided to try the enhancer on a few different stones.
The enhanced side is on your right.

The color enhancer increased the depth of color on all the stones we applied it to. The look changed drastically on every stone.
The simplest and least expensive way to know if you'll like how the color enhancer will look is by getting your stone wet.
