Benefits and Cautions with Travertine

  • Not two slabs are the same
  • It is durable and aesthetically appealing
  • Fairly porous and is likely to absorb liquids left on the surface
  • Finish and surface can be damaged by vinegar or citric acid based cleaners.
  • We recommend applying a sealer to reduce the chance of damage to your stone.
