Sealing a marble top patio table is an important step to having it last for years to come. Professional-grade sealer helps keep the damaging elements of the outdoors at bay, such as sun, rain and snow. It also helps prevent the marble top from being etched by acidic rain or drinks being put on the table. Sealer can be purchased at most any marble distribution site or home improvement store.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Clean the marble top thoroughly with a dampened sponge to remove any dirt and debris that may be on the table.

  2. 2

    Tape around the edges of the marble top to protect the surfaces adjacent to the marble using painter’s tape.

  3. 3

    Pour a small amount of polymer resin in a disposable cup and then pour it onto the marble top. Work from one side of the table to the other, using the paint spreader to catch drips and push the polymer resin back from the edges. Apply a generous coating of polymer resin to the marble top and allow it to dry per the manufacturer’s directions, which can vary from brand to brand.

  4. 4

    Wipe the marble top with a soft cloth after the polymer resin for a high-polish shine.
