The versatile Travertine Floor Tile makes it an ideal choice for a lot of homeowners. Its relaxed charm of natural colors is among the oldest color schemes in existence. Travertine material brings that feeling of the outdoors to the indoors for a cohesive blend. Travertine has that aged appearance and look. This allows the tiling system to be replaced or repaired with ease because it blends in so beautifully well. Highly buffed and polished tiles like ceramic tiling, are significantly more prone to showing abrasion and scratches. The natural-finish of Travertine however, is significantly scratch resistant. It can be easily cut and fit to make small tight tile installations. Travertine’s a little porous, and mean it will have a little more maintenance required than the average tile.
Tile Installation Scottsdale uses a two-part process for sealing during the process of Travertine installation. A normal penetrating sealer is used to fill in all the small pores. Then, we use a surface barrier sealing agent after the grout and thinset are fully cured and dried.
If a spill happens on Travertine, it’s best for someone to clean up the spill as quickly as possible. Travertine by nature is more susceptible to staining because of the open pores, but our installation team reduces this natural-attribute because of our installation procedure and processes. Travertine doesn’t make a good countertop because of its texture and permeable properties. It reacts adversely to acidic substances and will degrade the surface prematurely if its exposed to acidic drinks and food for very long.
