About Travertine

Travertine Stone Flooring in Washington, Maryland, Virginia Travertine is a type of natural limestone formed by the precipitation of calcium carbonate in mineral springs, hot springs, and caves. It is typically light-colored and has a porous texture with a pitted or dimpled surface often filled with cement or resin to create a smoother finish. Travertine tile is commonly used in architecture and construction for interior and exterior applications. It can be used as a flooring material, wall cladding, and even for decorative elements such as columns, balusters, and moldings.

Travertine Finishes

Travertine stone flooring can be finished in several ways to achieve different looks and textures. Polished travertine is buffed and glossed to a high shine, creating a luxurious appearance. Honed travertine, on the other hand, has a smooth and matte finish achieved by grinding and buffing one side of the stone. This finish can either be filled or unfilled. For a natural look, brushed travertine is a great option. It features an unfilled exterior and a textured finish achieved by brushing the stone’s surface with a wire wheel or brush to achieve the desired texture. This finish also has a high-textured surface but with softened edges compared to brushed flooring travertine. Tumbled travertine is created by placing pieces of stone in a barrel with abrasive grit and water. The stones rub against each other, softening the edges and creating a natural, worn look.

Durability of Travertine

Travertine falls somewhere in between marble and granite in terms of hardness. It is therefore important to take care when moving heavy objects on travertine floors to avoid scratches. The finish you choose for your travertine stone tile flooring and the area in which it will be installed should also be carefully considered.

Installation, Cleaning, and Repair

  • Installation – Travertine can be installed in several ways, including using thin-set mortar or a sand-setting bed. Proper installation is crucial for ensuring the durability and longevity of the stone. Hiring a professional installer with experience working with natural stone is recommended to ensure the best results.
  • Cleaning – Regular cleaning is essential to maintain the beauty of travertine surfaces. Use a soft cloth or mop and a pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for natural stone. Avoid using acidic or abrasive cleaners, which can damage the surface. It is also important to wipe up spills immediately to prevent staining. Sealant can be applied to protect the stone from stains, but it is not a substitute for proper cleaning and maintenance.
  • Repair – Travertine can be damaged by scratches, chips, and cracks over time. Small scratches and chips can be repaired with a travertine repair kit, which includes a repair compound that can be honed and polished to match the surrounding stone. For larger cracks and damage, hiring a professional who can assess the damage and provide the best solution is recommended.
