Travertine Tile – Timeless Style
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. This stone often has a fibrous or concentric appearance. It comes in white, tan, cream-coloured, and even rusty varieties. People have used it 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 materials in the natural stone family. They need special care to maintain their beauty and durability. Because it is a very porous stone, you should not use acids and harsh chemicals when cleaning it. You should seal it 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 tile 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 and filled – internal floors and bathrooms
Unfilled and tumbled – external use, flooring and pool surrounds
