Travertine Is Porous

A major fact of travertine is its porosity. The hemp-like surface of this stone gives it a unique natural, chaotic texture. But porosity also represents a maintenance problem that most other artificial floors and even other types of natural stone have not found.

Travertine Can Be Installed Outdoors

For the exterior, travertine tiles can be dried (placed on a sand bed) or mud (placed in mortar on top of a concrete slab). The stones should be placed as close as possible. The neat edges ensure minimal seams. Travertine is one of the softer stones that can be cut with a circular saw and diamond saw or tile saw.

For dry-set applications, sand is swept between the pavers after they have been set. A newer method is to sweep polymeric sand into the joints. Polymeric sand is a combination of filtered, size-calibrated sand and polymer adhesives. When sprayed with water , the adhesives first soften and then combine with the sand, hardening and binding the sand together.
