How hard is travertine? Travertine is a kind of stone that is about halfway in between limestone and marble. It’s finer than limestone, but not as fine as marble. Travertine is a pleasant stone to look at Travertine’s range in hardness from 4-5 on the ten-point MOHS scale (diamonds are 10; granites are ±7), Like any stone, travertine should be sealed with a penetrating sealer to prevent stains from penetrating into the stone. When used inside, if travertine is used outside as pavers for pool areas or walkways or any other pedestrian applications it is not necessary to seal because it is exposed to the weather elements and rain and the heat will wash and dry out any stains.You have come to the right place .Gappsi can design, supply and install your entire project.
