Travertine is a amazing stone we see in many pittsburgh homes. It is a durable and low maintenance stone. We see it used on floors, showers, and countertops. You may already know, that your travertine naturally has many holes and depending on the style you have, may or may not have those holes filled. Some travertine is unfilled, which has the greatest potential to become dirty and will need to be cleaned more often. But it is a great look!
There are also travertine that is partially filled with grout, still leaving a low area in the tile, where dirt can collect. The most easily cleaned travertine are the tiles that have been completely filled with either epoxies or polyesters.
