Also to know is, is travertine better than pavers?
Travertine pavers are natural stones, which means they must be quarried from locations where the stone is found. This makes them a little harder to obtain and more expensive to install. Concrete pavers, however, can be made on-demand and at any time, so they're more budget friendly.
is travertine worth the money? Expense: Travertine can be somewhat expensive, falling in the mid-range of natural stone options but on the high end of the general range of flooring materials. In addition to the cost of tile, there are costs for installation materials, including adhesive and grout, as well as professional labor.
In this regard, are travertine pavers durable?
A: Travertine Pavers are highly durable; they have been in nature for thousands of years and retain their color over time. This is actually one of the reasons why people choose Travertine over other materials, such as brick pavers, which begin to fade and crack within a year or two.
How thick should travertine pavers be?
Travertine Paver Thickness. The industry standard for Travertine Pavers thickness is 1.25″ (3 cm). Travertine pavers have higher PSI ratings compared to brick pavers and cement pavers and this thickness is optimal. Same thickness can be used for driveways as well as pool decks and patios.
