More About Travertine

Travertine Pavers

Travertine Pavers are known for their strength, density and timeless beauty. They come in stunning colours and flawless textures. In addition to adding a unique charm to your design project, they also offer remarkable resilience. Outdoor Travertine pavers can easily withstand all weather extremities and are therefore perfectly suitable for patios, alfresco, walkways, pathways and pool surrounds. Travertine is ideal for outdoor use as it absorbs the coolness from the ground beneath and offers a soft feeling underfoot which makes it very comfortable to walk on even in the scorching summer heat. They offer a good grip on the ground even in damp areas; hence Travertine is a popular choice as pool pavers. It offers numerous functional benefits whilst giving a luxurious and stylish look to your pool. Travertine Pavers in thickness of 30mm or more are suitable for all outdoor paving jobs for residential as well as commercial spaces. They are easy to maintain and can last for a long time.

In a French Pattern, also popularly known as the Versailles Pattern, Travertine pavers or tiles of six different sizes are arranged in a unique interlocking pattern. The set has 1 piece of 610x406 mm, 1 piece of 406x203 mm, 2 pieces of 406x406 mm, and 2 pieces of 203x203 mm. This is inspired by the European style of design and architecture and beautifully breaks the monotony of the grid pattern. French Pattern Tiles maximise light and make small spaces seem bigger and overall elevate the look of your living spaces.

French Pattern in Travertine pavers looks perfect for outdoor areas like patio, alfresco or pool decks.

Travertine Pool Copings

Swimming pool areas have coping stones covering the edges as a safety measure for swimmers. While getting inside or exiting the pool, copings offer a safe hold minimising the chances of injuries. Travertine Pool Copings come in 30 mm thickness and can easily withstand medium to heavy foot traffic. They offer practical benefits as well as bring an unmatched elegance to the pool surroundings.

Our Travertine Pool Copings come in two styles. One is the Drop Edge and the other is a Bullnose. The former forms a 90-degree vertical drop, giving the pool a sharp, sleek look. Bullnose pool copings on the other hand have rounded edges like the bull’s nose which give a softer look and offer enhanced safety benefits to pool users.

Travertine Crazy Pavers

The random and irregular arrangement of stonework handcrafted using pieces of naturally broken stones is known as crazy paving. Due to its versatility and eye-catching appeal, crazy paving has become the most popular outdoor paving technique in Australia.

In Travertine material Crazy Pavers are available in the Classic Light version. With their natural classic beige hue and rich texture, they are perfect for adding a stunning statement to both indoor and outdoor spaces. They can be used to accentuate patios, alfresco, garden paths, backyards, and pool surrounds. Classic Light Travertine Pavers are available in a standard 20 mm thickness, and their size ranges from 250-600 mm.

Travertine Treads

Natural stones bring a sophisticated and impressive look to the staircase. Travertine is quite popularly used as treads for both indoor and outdoor areas. Our Travertine Treads are available in 30mm thickness in two flawless styles –Pencil Edge and Bullnose. The Pencil Edge forms a 90-degree straight vertical drop, giving the stairs a classy and seamless look. Bullnose Treads on the other hand have beautiful, rounded edges to give a relatively softer look to your space.

Finishes of Travertine

Travertine is available in the following beautiful finishes. You can choose the right finish for you based on your design requirements and project space.

  • Honed & Filled: Honing is a process in which the surface of the stone is buffed to give it an even and smooth appearance. It provides a stunning matte look with minimum visible pores. This finish is primarily used for indoor areas such as flooring, walling, bathroom and kitchens.
  • Honed & Unfilled: Honed and unfilled travertine has organic pores on the surface and this kind of natural finish is used extensively for outdoor paving like walkways, pathways, patios, pool areas, alfresco, and backyards.
  • Polished: In this, the naturally tough texture of the stone is ground to a smooth high gloss shine to achieve a mirror-like finish.
  • Brushed: To get this finish a hard synthetic material or metal is brushed to the stone’s surface to create an antique, rough look.
  • Tumbled and Unfilled: This is the raw natural state of the stone. This finish is very popular to create an organic and vintage look for outdoor areas, such as patios, garden pathways, decorative exterior walls and swimming pool decks.
  • Acid Washed: As the name suggests, to achieve this surface finish the stone goes through a process where it is rinsed with acid. Depending on the usage, this can give a natural antique look to the stone or even bring a more defined rugged finish.

Installation & Maintenance Tips

Travertine is a beautiful and durable natural stone and one of our top-sellers. Largely used for pool surrounds, alfresco, verandas, pathways, garden paving, courtyards, floors and walls, it brings a natural charm to your space. However, proper installation and maintenance are necessary to ensure its longevity and beauty.

Installation Tips

  • Prepare the surface: Ensure that the space where the Travertine will be installed is clean, level and free from any debris. A proper base will lay a solid and stable foundation for your Travertine pavers or tiles.
  • Use heavy-duty adhesive: A high-quality adhesive is important when laying tiles over existing ones or on a wooden substrate. It keeps the structure in place and prevents the tiles from shifting over a period. Choose a high-performance adhesive suitable for natural stone installations as it offers better bonding strength. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for mixing proportions and application.
  • Grouting: Select a grout specifically suggested for natural stone. Avoid using acidic or harsh cleaners before you begin grouting to prevent damage to Travertine's surface. Ensure the tiles or pavers are well set, wait for a minimum of 24 hours after applying the adhesive. After applying the grout, scrape off the extra before it starts to stiffen.
  • Sealing: This one is crucial. Before and after grouting, apply a penetrating sealer designed for Travertine. Sealing creates a shield and helps protect the stone from stains, moisture and other damage. Follow the manufacturers or installers’ recommendations for frequency of application. The general recommended frequency is every 2 years.
  • Allow for Natural Movement: Due to its natural properties, Travertine may expand and contract in response to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. Where expansion joints are required, allow space for this movement.

Maintenance Tips

  • Clean Regularly: Sweep or vacuum your Travertine floors regularly to keep them clean. Don’t let dirt or debris get accumulated on the surface. Occasionally clean with a soft cloth or sponge and a pH-neutral stone cleaner. Avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can strip off the stone's patina over time and damage its appearance.
  • Take prompt action for spills: Clean up wine, vinegar and citrus juice spills immediately to prevent staining. Dab a soft absorbent cloth or paper tissue to dab the excess liquid. Then clean it thoroughly with a cleaner specially meant for Travertine.
  • Avoid scrubbing: We don’t recommend rough washing. Use soft cloths or non-abrasive sponges for cleaning. Avoid scrubbing with rough brushes or cleaning pads, as they can scratch the stone and damage its surface over time.
  • Reseal Periodically: Travertine needs timely resealing to maintain its beauty and integrity. Depending on the type of Travertine and the amount of foot traffic your area receives, you may need to reseal the stone every 1-2 years. Follow the sealer’s instructions or seek professional help.
  • Safeguard from heavyweights: Avoid dropping heavy objects or dragging furniture across its your Travertine floors to prevent chipping or cracking. Use carpets and mats to preserve and prolong the life of your Travertine.
  • For outdoor use: If you have Travertine installed outdoors, for patio or pool areas, ensure that it is of appropriate thickness according to the space. Alfresco and patio areas with low foot traffic work with 20mm thickness while heavy-use walkways need a thickness of 30mm or more. Also, ensure the right surface finish so that your Travertine can endure all outdoor conditions.

By following these installation and maintenance tips, you can keep your travertine surfaces looking beautiful and well-maintained for years to come.

Grout is used to fill the gaps or joints between the tiles, providing a stable structure and preventing the tiles from shifting or rubbing against each other over time. Grouting also enhances the overall aesthetic appearance of the design installation layout.

18. How often do you need to seal Travertine?

The frequency of sealing Travertine stone depends on the space where it is installed and the amount of wear and tear it experiences. However, the general sealing recommendations suggest every two years. Sealing prevents staining, discolouration and other kinds of damage to

the stone and prolongs its lifespan.

19. Does salt water ruin Travertine?

Travertine is a porous natural stone. It absorbs some of the water into its pores when it gets wet.
