About Travertine

Category: Stone Knowledge Updated: 2023/11/8 Views  Views: 47       Likes  Likes: 4

Travertine is a type of subterranean limestone brought to the surface by hot springs. It can come from various sources. Some come from as far away as Indonesia and Iceland, and others are as close as Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon. Erosion from the spring water creates small holes and craters that give travertine a naturally pitted appearance.

The holes may be filled with concrete during the manufacturing process or with fillers during installation. This raw, weathered look was traditionally used as an outdoor garden tile or pool paving material, but it is now an excellent choice for indoor flooring, shower walls, backsplashes, and countertops. On the other hand, its porous composition makes it highly vulnerable to acid damage and staining. Regular maintenance is needed to keep up its appearance.
