Travertine Polishing

Travertine is available in different colors and finishes, from natural, neutral colors such as creamy white and beige to tan and reddish brown. The color depends quite a bit on the impurities and iron content of the stone. The different finishes include honed, polished and tumbled. Honed travertine is smooth, but unlike polished, it has a matte finish. Polished travertine is smooth, but buffed and polished until shiny. Tumbled travertine has a rougher, textured finish and often has rounded corners for an antiqued look.

Travertine is natural stone, no two pieces are the same. It is important to look over the material carefully and select only those pieces that you find the most beautiful. While you can save money by buying bulk parcels, you may not be able to examine individual pieces for pattern and color tone preference.

The photos above display a travertine floor that had an original honed finish. Another company attempted to acquire a low sheen by use of mineral oil or murphys soap. This left the floor feeling greasy and attracted more dirt.

The customer wanted a high shine, and Advanced Stone provided the best possible polished finish. The floors were stripped by use of eco-friendly chemicals, honed to remove scratches and etch marks, and polished to a brilliant shine.
