New Texas Flagstone help

Wonderful site - and it's been so helpful, but perhaps too helpful in that I'm confused about what I have.

I recently had a patio installed here in Austin Tx, where they said it was "Oklahoma Chocolate". It's been a couple months and I would like to seal/protect the patio, and give it that "wet" look simply because it makes the stone "pop" so much and contrast against the grout so well.
Does the Siloxane give this glossy wet look, or is it just a sealant that will not have any impact on the way it looks today??
Look forward to answer whenever you can, and will also contact Prosoco.

Thank you,

Dear Tony,

Thanks for the compliment. My dad is so happy to be able to help people with his 50 years of knowledge.

Siloxane will not give you the "wet look" you're looking for. Prosoco makes a product called Gloss N Guard that will do it for you. You can check it out here:

Wet Look Sealer

We haven't used the product, but we've heard about people who have had great results from it.

And, contacting Prosoco is a good idea. They can be a lot more specific for you in your situation.

Great luck with your project!

David
