Travertine is a natural stone very popular for interior or exterior decoration projects. What makes it so unique is the wide color variation, besides the unspecific pattern or its porous structure. Moreover, it is a natural stone capable of reinventing to be able to adapt to fresh concepts of design and architecture, thus being fully integrating in any setting or design style.
Classic Cross Cut French Pattern Travertine with brushed finish and chiseled edge is a very popular material highlighted by warm cream shades, ideal for any exterior decoration project, especially for medium traffic paving. These two finishes highlight the veins and the color variations will help for creating a unique space.
This material is ideal for paving the backyards or even for public areas pavements. Its beauty is conveyed by the finish with brush and chiseled edges, but also an increased adherence and is also recommended for wet spaces – swimming pool, sauna. With such an amazing look, Classic Travertine can be also hard and durable.
What you need to know about installation:
Installation is as important as choosing the best suited stone for your project.
After unpacking, the travertine tiles must be washed and dried.
For installing the tiles, we recommend Weber Set Marmo Plus, a flexible fast setting adhesive, also suitable for exterior and projects with underfloor heating.
Weber Color Comfort grouting joints will be applied after fixing the tiles for highlighting natural stone, with more than 30 color shades to choose from. For a correct installation, we recommend contracting a specialist.
Tips for natural stone aftercare
Travertine is a hard and durable stone, yet for an extended lifetime you should keep in mind 3 procedures: cleaning, sealing and aftercare.
Clean the surface before sealing with LTP Grimex, available in our range of solutions (approx. 1L = 40 – 50 sqm)
Seal the surface with LTP Mattstone, recommended for both interior and exterior. This procedure is essential for daily protection of natural stone against water drops, dust and stubborn stains. As a result, the pores of the surface will seal, creating a barrier against external agents that could damage the stone.
Enhance and highlight the color of travertine with LTP Color Intensifier
For daily cleaning and aftercare, we recommend LTP Waxwash, a cleaner that will not influence the sealed surface (1L = 700 sqm)
For stubborn stains, we recommend LTP Power Stripper and for rust stains LTP Grout Stain Remover (1L = 30 – 40 sqm).
Travertine is one of the most remarkable materials used for interior and exterior decoration projects. In case you’re not sure yet of the beauty of travertine, you can order a sample on our website.
