All about Travertine Tile

The installation and maintenance of travertine tiles is best done by travertine stone tile restoration experts.

The Texture

Travertine is valued for its texture and light beige colour. It has a speckled and rough surface giving it a unique characteristic surface. These distinctive features make it a favourite choice.

The Rustic Look

Travertine tiles have a rustic and old world charm about them. These will not give your home a colourful and funky look but will create a warm, antique and elegant aspect that will reflect your style and grace.

Ease of Installation

Travertine tiles are very easy to install because these have natural cut edges. So, these fit seamlessly into the existing structure with the help of mortar; they will not leave ugly gaps in between.

Places to Install

Any place in the house that deserves a stone installation can have a travertine surface. This includes kitchens, walls, backsplashes, bathrooms, tub surrounds and foyers. But travertine stone tile restoration experts will advise you against installing these in very wet or moist places like bathroom floors.

Things to Remember
  • Travertine is a popular stone because of its mottled and rough texture. But these holes and pits tend to gather dust, dirt and get clogged. Moreover, if travertine tiles are installed outdoor, there is a risk of the stone cracking along the holes. So, how will you solve this problem? A cleaning and sealing Cheshire expert will fill these holes with proper material and prevent any cracking or dirt accumulation.
  • The grout tends to darken with time giving the tiles a dirty look. So, at the very onset use a dark grout that will darken less.
  • In order to protect your travertine tiles and give them a longer life, use around two to three coats of stone sealers every three to five years. Exterior sealers need to be reapplied once a year for best results.
