Travertine Tile – Timeless Style
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance. It comes in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties. It has been used in buildings for centuries all over the world. Travertine looks more beautiful with age and using it in your home will create a beautiful timeless style. As well as adding value to your home.
Travertine – A Natural Yet Delicate Stone
Knowing that travertine tiles are natural stones, you may feel that they are indestructible. However, Travertine Tile is one of the most porous in the natural stones family. They need special care to maintain their beauty and durability. Because it is a very porous stone acids and harsh chemicals should not be used when cleaning it. It should be sealed after laying so that maintenance is kept to a minimum. This results in a surface that will not only look beautiful but will also last for many years to come.
Travertine – Finishes & Uses
Compared to other stones such as marble or granite, travertine is softer and more brittle than other stones. Because of the natural holes and troughs in the stone, many varieties are “filled”. This means that some sort of grout powder or epoxy is used to fill the holes. As mentioned previously there are many different finishes such as:
Polished – Internal floors and bathrooms.
Honed & Filled – Internal floors and bathrooms.
Unfilled & Tumbled – External use, flooring & pool surrounds.
