Travertine

 

 

 

 

 

Travertine is as a variety of limestone with linear striations. We carefully curate our selection of travertine tile and slabs; particularly, items that have proven successful in commercial and residential applications for years. Please read Material Considerations to understand the characteristics of travertine prior to making a selection.
Travertine is a porous material with naturally-occurring holes that may remain
unfilled or be factory-filled with resin or cement. All travertines will acid etch
when exposed to acidic foods such as lemons or tomatoes. All travertines
have high absorption ratings and low abrasion resistance ratings.

 

 

HELPFUL TIPS:

Do not use resin-filled material outside, as the resin will discolor over
time. Choose cement-filled or unfilled materials as an alternative.
• Fabricators will often need to resin-fill the exposed edges to match the
filled surface of the material.
• Do not use travertine for kitchen countertop applications.

• Always seal travertine prior to grouting or use.
• Use walk-off mats at entrances and expect the material to
patina rapidly.
• Always use a grout that is similar in color to the stone to avoid a
picture-frame effect.
• Always use a neutral detergent to clean travertine.
• To reduce the appearance of staining, always wipe up spills
immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and
stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
