Building a Travertine Patio
by: JD Professional Team

There is a lot of misconception when it comes to having a travertine patio installed. Between the DYI shows on television, the discount installers and all the advertisement in local magazines, it can be difficult for homeowners to understand their options.

One of the biggest factors when it comes to a travertine patio is the grade of the stone (its quality). When you are looking to put stone flooring outside you have to keep in mind that this floor will be exposed to the elements. Therefore, you need to make sure that the stone you are having installed is of a good quality, installed properly, and sealed to protect it from the rain.

When it comes to the quality of travertine you will hear all sorts of stories: "Italian travertine is best", "travertine from Turkey is best", "the travertine from Lebanon is the best" and so on and so forth. The real truth is that there are good quality stones and bad quality stones from all parts of the world. Hiring a company with the right relationships with different providers is the only way to ensure that you will get quality travertine. A quality stone will have few holes and fillings.

Next is how well is the stone installed. Once again, choosing the right contractor can make all the difference. An experienced contractor will not only have the connections to source the best stones, he/she will also have the experience and the knowhow to perform a quality and durable installation. Having your travertine patio properly installed ensures that it will be sealed properly to avoid water infiltration and that the stones are properly bound to one another so that no weeds can grow between the stones (which is another common problem with improperly installed travertine patios).

In conclusion, if it is time to take your backyard to the next level and add a travertine patio, hiring a qualified and experienced provider can make all the difference.
