Travertine is a very popular natural stone in interior and exterior decoration projects. What makes it so unique, besides the unspecified pattern or its porous structure, is the wide range of shades. Travertine can be defined as a mosaic of the natural landscape – a story captured in a broken piece of the universe.
For exterior paving, the Romano Tumbled Travertine French Pattern is the perfect material that will highlight your project by conveying that "home" feeling. The tumbled finish underlines natural stone’s raw beauty and the French Pattern (with ornamental function and including 4 tiles of different sizes plus 6 more tiles) will help you create a special area with a personal touch.
Durability of material and the 3 cm thickness are ideal for medium and heavy traffic paving but also wet spaces such as swimming pools. We also recommend Romano Tumbled Travertine French Pattern for both covered and uncovered terraces. The beauty of this material is conveyed by a wide color variation so that each tile is unique, yet together will shape the perfect combination for your house decoration project.
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.
Installation for French Pattern Sets begins from the middle, not from the side.
Weber Color Perfect 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 durable stone, yet for extending its 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
For sealing the surface we recommend LTP Mattstone, a solution suitable for both interior and exterior. This procedure will protect the surface against water, dust and stubborn stains. As a result, the surface pores are sealed by creating a barrier against water, so that stone will not stain so easy.
For daily cleaning and aftercare, we recommend LTP Waxwash, a cleaner that will not influence the sealed surface
For stubborn stains, we recommend LTP Power Stripper and for rust stains, LTP Grout Stain Remover.
Travertine is one of the most amazing materials used for interior or exterior decoration projects. In case we did not convinced you yet of the unique look found in every tile of natural stone, we invite you to order a sample on our website.
