What Exactly is Travertine?

Travertine is a durable, porous limestone, often found in warm, earthy tones like tan and cream. Formed in mineral springs, it’s known for its unique texture and natural beauty.

Widely used for flooring, wall cladding, and countertops, travertine combines elegance with practicality. Its porosity requires regular sealing to prevent stains and moisture damage, ensuring its longevity and aesthetic appeal in various architectural styles.

Why Seal Travertine?

Travertine is riddled with linked capillary channels that allow liquids to pass through. These porous channels behave like sponges, taking in liquids as well as dissolved salts and other solutes with time.

Travertine, a very porous stone, absorbs liquids quite rapidly.
Properly sealing your travertine and shell lock paver tiles provides various advantages.

Benefits of Sealing Travertine

Unsealed travertine pavers may be damaged by the Florida sun and the salty air during the brutal summer months. During the rainy season, water may seep through the stone. When this water combines with the dust and sand in the stone, a mud puddle forms, which may contribute to cracks in the stone. Sealers keep dust and water from entering the pavers, hence preventing such complications.

Moisture, dust, and the right temperature enable mildews and weeds to rise almost anywhere. It is recommended that you lock in all the joints with a high-quality poly joint sand before sealing. Without sealers, weeds sprout into the pavers and cause a lot of damage. By locking in all joints with high-quality sand and sealing the pavers, weeds and mildews still grow, but they don’t get in between the pavers and stay on the surface, making them convenient to get rid of.

Travertine is a unique stone composed largely of calcium salts that react strongly with acidic things in nature. Even apparently innocuous meals such as drinks and fruit juice may damage them and leave a lasting stain on the surface. Sealers keep these contaminants from seeping into the surface, letting you clean it with a brush. The most commonly used sealers for safety against weak acids are granite sealers.

Not only will sealing travertine flooring prevent fungal growth, but it will also bring out the inherent beauty of the stone. When we apply a sealer on the travertine, it takes on a sparkling, vibrant appearance. The sealant will cover the rock with a glossy layer, giving it a rich, fresh, and long-lasting look. If you have travertine in your outdoor spaces, the sealer will keep the colour of the stone from fading in the intense Florida weather.

Sealers produce a layer on the surface of the pavers that reflects light, giving the stone a dazzling and glossy appearance. They shield the surface from stains like oil and grease. Sealers also keep the pavers’ colours from deteriorating. Now we know what you’re thinking… glossy means slippery! This is not a problem for the professionals at Walkway Management South Florida. Our sealing process is scientifically proven to be one of the most slip resistant finishes on the market.

Due to the porous nature of travertine, water is absorbed into the pores of the paver, dissolving the salt inside the stone and eroding it. This is a common concern on pool decks and in restrooms. Sealers resist moisture and prevent it from being soaked, thus protecting the pavers from erosion.

Sealants promote corrosion resistance and maintain lifespan. They prevent high-traffic pavers from damaged. They are responsible for extending the life of the stone.
