Travertine is Easy to Repair
First and foremost, travertine is beautiful to look at. In fact, it is one of the oldest building materials that is still in use. After thousands of years, it continues to be popular because it brings a sense of prestige, elegance, and age. That said, it is also a beautiful, awe-inspiring option. This is not an antiquated flooring but rather a uniquely colored, uniquely designed flooring option. No two travertine floors are identical.
Who wants to install a tile floor only to have it crack or be easily damaged? You would think no one would yet people have soft flooring installed every day. We appreciate that travertine is a hard tile that can take wear and tear without showing damage. In fact, it is such a strong, unique looking stone that it can be scratched, cracked, or even chipped without looking any worse for the wear – it just adds to its special look.
If you want a unique flooring option you have one big problem: To get a unique flooring option, you often have to choose a flooring type that’s out of left field. It may be a strong, bold color, or made from a substance that is less than perfect. Or you could just get travertine, which manages to do the seeming impossible feat of being both subdued and very bold and beautiful. It has a dignified, soft, off-white hue that can go with any other colors you may be decorating with.
In addition to being durable enough to not damage easily, it is also up for standing the test of time. This flooring, when properly cared for, can last for centuries. It will naturally weather over time, which some people love as it adds character, but you could also choose to prevent it by apply sealing agents. No matter how you seal or don’t see the floor, regular maintenance and cleaning is necessary for it to look great for as long as possible.
Though it is difficult to damage travertine, and when it is damaged it often looks just as beautiful as it did before, it is also easy to repair. As a result, while it is unlikely you will have to deal with damage, if you do all it takes is a call to Fuller Stone Care at 855-205-0972 and we can repair the damage.
