Travertine Pavers

A member of the limestone family, Travertine is formed by minerals dissolving in ground water and then being deposited on the earth’s surface by rivers, natural springs, or geysers. It has been used for thousands of years as a building veneer.  And it has been used as an interior tile for decades.  The introduction of thicker cuts of travertine for outdoor use happened only within the last decade..

Being imported from Europe and South America, the cost of shipping makes travertine relatively expensive compared to local stone or manufactured pavers.  However, it has the unique advantage of retaining an especially cool surface, even after extended exposure to intense sunlight. It should come as no surprise that the use of travertine for pool decks was the application that drew attention to this material for hardscaping. 

In addition to travertine pavers, wall caps, treads and now double-sided sitting walls are also available in this exotic stone.  Our displays will be updated this winter with new product options.  Visit us in the spring of 2013 to see new the newest travertine products.
