Travertine is also a great natural stone to work with. Travertine tile serves as a slightly harder and less absorbent alternative to traditional marble flooring. The restoration process consists of diamond cutting the stone to eliminate any scratches using different grits of diamonds we use on our machines, follow by polishing which brings out the stone natural sheen. Third step is to seal it which is an extra layer of protection to prevent things like acidic agents’ from penetrating the floor. Even though the stone is not as absorbent as marble it most get seal to protect the floor from moisture, and any spills that may cause staining. As well we can crystallize to basically enhance the level of shine.
