Can travertine-limestone-granite be used outside in the winter weather of long island New York?
Travertine, limestone and granite , are natural stones and have been out side for millions of years or better for as long as the earth it self. Ones cut in to tiles and pavers, nothing as done to affect the structure integrity of the stone. The most common problem with natural stones is the installation which is the poor knowledge and skills of the installers. Not because you are a mason and have been in construction for many years you are an expert in natural stone installation. During the installation of natural stones other products are used in combination with the natural stone pavers or tile. Like thin set, glue, cement etc….natural stones in contact with man made products could have some reactions and develop stains or discoloring, but this will only happened if the installation is not done right and if the installer is non knowledgeable about the product more then he is about the actual installation.
