Travertine Tiles for Exterior Flooring

Travertine Tiles for Exterior Flooring

Our Bairnsdale customer was keen to send us the photo of their patio project using Travertine Tiles unfilled and tumbled 457x457mm, thickness 12mm. We think the pebble insert is a nice touch.

Project location: Bairnsdale, Victoria.

Travertine tiles 12mm

We recommend 30mm thick travertine floor pavers for exterior flooring projects and high wear areas. The 12mm Travertine tiles are used when there are height restrictions on the project. This thinner Travertine tile is also suitable for pool surrounds, however a 30mm thick tile should be used as a pool coping tile for both strength and aesthetic reasons.

Source of Travertine tiles

Our Travertine tiles tumbled unfilled 610x406x12mm is sourced directly from a family owned quarry in Turkey. Our close relationship with the quarry owners helps us to select a variation of Travertine that “stone lovers” really appreciate. This is important as Travertine varies enormously in density, size of the holes in the stone and colour. It is normal practice for the quarries to grade the stone according to its characteristics prior to export, (more compact and dense stone with smaller holes is charged at a higher rate).

Therefore it is important, when selecting Travertine tiles, to relate quality with price. At Edwards Slate & Stone we hold large stocks of Travertine and invite inspection of the stock prior to purchase.

Travertine Pool Surround Tiles Ready for Grouting

Travertine Pool Surround

This Travertine pool surround project is ready for grouting, look at all the straight lines, stone pavers precisely laid by professional landscapers.

Nowadays a lot of people try to find possibilities of doing the job themselves to save the laying cost. You can even find a lot of instructional and DIY videos on line.

However if you want your landscaping project or swimming pool nicely done, it is essential to look for a good landscaper or tradesman who really know how to lay natural stone pavers.

Travertine for Paving

Travertine is one of several natural stones that are used for paving patios and garden paths. It is sometimes known as travertine limestone or travertine marble; these are the same stone, although travertine is classified properly as a type of limestone, not marble. The stone is characterised by pitted holes and troughs in its surface. Although these troughs occur naturally, they suggest signs of considerable wear and tear over time. It can also be polished to a smooth, shiny finish, and comes in a variety of colors from grey to coral-red. Travertine is most commonly available in tile sizes for floor installations.
