Whether you have worked with travertine pavers not, it helps to understand some of its key benefits if you’re thinking of including it in your next project! Travertine pavers are made of natural stone, in the same way as tiles, except that they are meant for use in backyards, driveways, and patios and are therefore thicker than tiles. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why travertine pavers may be the right choice for your next outdoor project.
Usually, travertine patio pavers come in a variety of finishes and colors. This makes them a fantastic option to complement the exterior of your home. Just think of how an elegant shade of gold, walnut, or ivory can complement your outdoor décor. Beyond coloring, you can create beautiful patterns and designs with these pavers. Travertine tile finishes can range from smooth, porous surfaces (perfect for pool areas) to rougher pavers with chiseled edges for driveways.
Nobody wants to add more work to their yard, and with travertine pavers you don’t have to stress about that. These pavers are resistant to discoloration and debris. They are also known for being extremely durable and strong. The most you’ll likely need to do in terms of maintenance is occasionally washing the pavers down with a hose. Travertine is also capable of handling thaw and freeze so temperature changes won’t mar the stone.
An Affordable Option
When looking at travertine patio pavers, you might think they would break the budget. However, this is usually not true. Natural pavers are often very affordable and a fantastic investment since they last for many years. Even if you sell your home, they can still add value to the sale price due to the durability and the aesthetic qualities of the stone.
If you plan to make your pool area safer, you can’t go wrong with travertine. These pavers are slip-resistant and stable to walk on. They have a rough texture due to their porous nature, but they get even more slip resistant when they are wet. This can provide a little extra safety, especially when the little ones are using the area around the pool.
