Travertine pavers are ideal for patio, driveway, pool surrounds, or walkway whereas Travertine tiles are suitable for walls and indoor applications. Outdoor Travertine tiles also find their application in decorative accents, cornerstones, retaining walls, and facades. Choose from an aged-tumbled finish, crisp clean sawn, or slightly distressed finish for paving surfaces that stay stylish and radiant forever! Travertine pavers are durable yet feel soft under bare feet. Another advantage of the stone is its ability to stay cool even in scorching summers, making it perfect as pool pavers and outdoor tiles.

Often confused with marble and limestone, Travertine stands out with its distinctive appearance and multiple pores on its surface. It is advisable to seal these holes to reduce the stone’s porosity and protect the surface from moisture, stains, or dust accumulation. Yet many users prefer the perforations to stay in outdoor pavers and tiles as they lend an authentic rugged look. If sealed properly, Travertine is quite easy to maintain. You only need mild detergents or pH-neutral cleaners.
