“Don’t Re-floor it, Restore it!”
Travertine is a natural stone much like marble, limestone, onyx, granite and slate. The major difference between other natural stones and travertine is evident in the formation, hardness and appearance of the rock. Travertine is a later formation of limestone. In Texas, the city of Austin and its surrounding “Hill Country” to the south is built on limestone. The area has many travertine formations, such as those found at Gorman Falls within Colorado Bend State Park, the nature preserve known as Hamilton Pool, the West Cave Preserve, and Krause Springs in Spicewood. Travertine is one of the more popular stones in modern architecture. The largest building in the world is actually constructed mostly of travertine.
The stone is characterized by the holes or troughs in its surface. Even though these troughs naturally occur,they suggest signs of considerable wear and tear over time. These holes can be filled with a special travertine filler. Over time honed and filled Travertine can release the epoxies that can make them look so smooth. Our fillers can be color matched to your tile.
