Travertine Patios and Pool Coping are the perfect stone material to use on Long Island NY for your outdoor living space. Travertine is a natural stone, created in shallow bodies of water. The residue of lime settled and built up over millions of years in a massive thick block. The colors of the travertine derive from soil and minerals that contaminated the ground in the area where lime settled. Fossils trapped between the bodies of travertine accumulate and become the exposed holes you see in the travertine surface.
Formed beneath the hot springs over millions of years Travertine is a gorgeous stone material. When geothermal groundwater heats up, water shoots up, thus creating the pits and unique character on the surface of each stone. The holes on the travertine pavers may appear to be a defect to some people, but it’s not. It is just a natural occurrence that has happened over millions of years during the stone structure formation. The holes and imperfections of travertine surfaces can never be mistaken with any other stone; it is unique and timeless.
It Stays Cool On Those Hot SUMMER Days!
Travertine is very cool on hot summer days due to the fact that the body structure of travertine is pure lime and contains no minerals or iron. If you could hire Michelangelo to custom paint your patio I am pretty sure he would not be able to create such a remarkable color pattern as you see in this Fiorito Travertine Stone. This particular Fiorito travertine stone is one of the oldest travertine formations due to the multicolor variation and the line of onyx crystallization that appears on the surface of the stone.

Fiorito Travertine Pavers and Pool Coping In Islip NY
Gappsi recently designed a backyard and installed a pool for a residence in Islip NY. We built a 20×40 vinyl pool with concrete walls. The pool is 5 inches in the shallow area to 66 inches in the deep-end water height. We installed a 2 inches coping and patio with G035 travertine selected from the Gappsi stone collection throughout the backyard, surrounding the pool up to the backyard sliding door.
Gappsi also created 3 sided steps leading to the backyard. We built a pool house with a sitting area to the outside connecting to the indoors with a window to pass through all trimmed with Azek. The floor was carried throughout the inside of the pool house. A bar area was designed including a refrigerator and storage cabinet with a gas fireplace too! We created an open bean look all painted to match the white trim moldings throughout the pool house. Very beautiful functional layout including a bathroom with many details especially in the columns. Gappsi built pillars below the swimming pool, they are equipped with an auto cover too.
