Should Travertine Pavers Be Sealed?
Travertine is known for its durability and ruggedness as a natural stone. Even the toughest materials need TLC. Take good care of your outdoor travertine tile by sealing it every one to two years to keep it protected from damage and looking fresh.
There are three main types of sealers for travertine the type of sealer you choose really depends on the look you want to achieve:
- Enhancing Stone Sealers – Enhancing stone sealers penetrate into travertine and enhance the natural colors found in the stone while protecting it from staining and acid discoloration that can easily occur in this calcium-rich stone. Enhancing sealers are a great way to refresh older pavers, or bring out vibrant colors in travertine.
- Impregnating Sealers – Impregnating sealers are very similar to enhancing sealers, but they can deposit solid particles into the pores of stone while preventing water, dirt, and oil from penetrating the surface of your tile. This is a great choice for hardscaping.
- Topical Sealers Glossy Finish – Topical Glossy Sealers give your travertine a lustrous, gleaming appearance while sealing out oil and grease that can stain and discolor porous travertine tile. Glossy sealers also prevent the color of your tile from fading. Protect your investment by sealing your stone regularly, and researching the best sealant for your tile.

Walnut Travertine Backyard Patio Complete Design By Gappsi
Gappsi used walnut travertine in this residence located on Long Island in Sands Point NY. We used this color travertine throughout the entrance way starting with the front entrance stairway. We continued with the copings, treads, pavers for the platforms, and veneers for the rises were all in walnut travertine.
Gappsi extended the columns for the light features to illuminate the backyard. On the home, the house veneers were all split-face travertine veneers. The entrance to the backyard was also all in a travertine walnut color combination of beige browns and whites.
The stairway to the backyard leads to the synthetic wood deck. The backyard patio sitting areas, and pavilion area were all in walnut travertine. The pavilion was custom built, finished with wood planks installed on the ceiling, and the outdoor kitchen was built in u shape with DCS appliances. The pool area is very large and includes a fireplace.
Gappsi built the gunite pool that is equipped with an automatic swimming pool cover. The landscape included a natural stone waterfall with sitting walls. This project was built by Gappsi approximately 12 years ago. Still, in great shape, we recently cleaned and sealed all the travertine with a natural clear sealer that does not enhance or change the color of the stones but prevents them from absorbing water. This is the latest Gappsi Project in Sands Point NY.
