This product seals paver stone like crazy. Water beads and does not penetrate. As a result I'm confident of its stain resistance. The only hit is that when it dries it leaves a slight white powder looking coating in the joints. I'm guessing it will weather off in time and it's not overly visible. Stone Tooling was good to deal with, the only comment for them is that in two of the three boxes shipped, at least one of the gallons leaked and UPS had to open the boxes and seal the bottles in plastic.
