Travertine is an extremely beautiful stone that is resistant to rain and snow and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Its beauty is noticeable in the variety of colors. In nature, travertine occurs in white, cream, chocolate, red, yellow and silver colors.
Travertine is mostly used for building facades and interior walls, thanks to its unique properties. One of its properties is the presence of pores, which makes this stone easy to attach to the facade of buildings. Another of its properties is its low density, which makes it extremely light and thus reduces the weight of the building.
This stone is used in construction because of its relative strength, easy cutting and polishing, appearance and complete adherence to the facade.

What colors is travertine available in?
Travertine comes in many different natural colors, including beige, brown, gray, ivory, and gold. There may also be slight shades of green, red and rust, depending on the origin of the stone and the minerals inherent in the particular selection. The color of travertine is the result of iron compounds and other organic impurities.
What does the finished surface of travertine look like?
Travertine comes in four main finish options: polished (glossy), honed (matte), brushed (textured), and scrubbed (textured). The type of finish given to travertine determines how shiny the surface will be. Polished and sanded surfaces are flat and smooth, while brushed and sanded surfaces are flat and textured. The most common finish for travertine is sanded.
Where can I use travertine?
Travertine has been used as a building material for thousands of years. Today, travertine is used for flooring, building wall cladding, showers, wall cladding and countertops.
How durable is travertine tile?
For centuries, cultures around the world believed that travertine would endure as flooring, wall tiles and other surfaces. Although travertine is susceptible to acidic substances and metal abrasion, it remains a surface that can be relied upon to look great for years, given that it is regularly maintained to ensure that it retains its original appearance. Sealing the surface of the travertine with an impregnator can help with this and will make maintenance much easier.
What is the best way to keep travertine clean?
The best way to keep travertine clean is to remove dirt, grit and other materials that have come in from the outside. Many of these substances can cause small scratches on the surface of your travertine that can become noticeable over time. So it’s best to make sure the travertine surface is clean with a damp cloth, soft broom or vacuum cleaner as often as possible. Clean up liquid spills immediately, especially if they are acids. Fruit juice is particularly problematic, as are coffee and red wine because of their tendency to leave stains. Even if you have sealed your travertine, it’s a good idea not to take any chances. Do not use bleach, vinegar, or other harsh acid-based cleaners, as they will damage the surface of your travertine over time.
