Travertine Tiles In An Exterior Setting
Travertine tiles are a great choice of stone for exterior flooring and decorating. It looks elegant, neutral and easy to maintain at home or in any commercial use in Orlando. With its wide variety of colors and finishes to choose from, travertine is a stylish and versatile choice for natural stone.
Wide Variety of Choices
Travertine is a variety of limestone formed by mineral springs and is available in different pastel colors and patterns. Travertine tiles can be mistaken for marble, but it stands out because of its fibrous texture and tantalizing patinas. An excellent choice inside as flooring, counter tops and showers, while also an outstanding option for outdoor use. Travertine wall cladding, exterior pavers, swimming pool tiles, decks, spas and flooring add a level of sophistication to any outdoor sanctuary. Travertine is more common than marble or granite because it’s widely available, easy to quarry and weighs less.
Need A Professional Touch For Travertine Tile Cleaning?
Like any material constantly exposed to the elements, travertine tiles will lose its natural beauty due to dirt, plant growth, weather and traffic. It is important to perform regular cleaning and maintenance on your travertine. Although, when you begin to find etch marks, scratches, stains, pitting, chips and cracks or the stone becomes dull and lacks luster, these issues cannot simply be “wiped off”. Professional travertine cleaning and restoration will be required.
“Our custom abrasive process is designed to be the most effective without causing damage by unnecessarily opening up air pockets that turn into holes. We use lower grit levels with more sanding impact which will clean the stone & finish the Travertine to a soft sheen with glowing reflection. What our competitors refer to as a “honed” finish, we describe as a “satin glow finish”. Need your travertine holes filled? We are able to fill the holes with our Traverfill grout or epoxy based fill system to blend with your stone. We recommend to all of our clients the application of a penetrating sealer. It is a great way to protect the stone from damage and staining.” Read more about all of our Travertine services here.
